Welcome to the weekly “Best of Miles to Memories” recap series. Here you will find links to all of the still relevant posts from the past week. This week I broke the news that Hyatt will no longer honor elite benefits on 3rd party stays, showed you how to maximize the AMAZING Sam’s Club Amex offer and covered tons of other things including Vegas resort price increases, how to get an SPG 30K offer and much more.
