Newsroom March 29th, Argentina drops reciprocity fee, Virgin America status match, Hilton 40% off Sale, big bonus for buying AAdvantage miles
– Big News if you have travel planned to Argentina – they just suspended that nasty $140 reciprocity fee for US passport holders
– Hilton HHonors Asia-Pacific has a 40% off flash sale (for stays April 1 – December 31, 2016) – sale starts today – these can be decent deals
– Virgin America Elevate has a new status match program that let’s you match from Delta, United, American and Southwest – do it before they sell themselves to the highest bidder
– Alaska and jetBlue are bidding on Virgin America – we suspected Delta but apparently they have not yet thrown their hat in the ring
– American AAdvantage adds up to 75% bonus for buying miles
There is no reason to jump on this for no reason but if you have a bunch of miles missing to your next redemption – that’ a decent bonus.
