Etihad Guest currently shows First ‘Guest’ Saver seats from on June for the Etihad Apartments from Abu Dhabi to New York – this can be booked with AAdvantage of Etihad Guest and makes a wonderful redemption (via Frequent Miler)

– Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan started confusing everyone with a new promotion today, but eventually we found out what is going on

Alaska Mileage Plan is playing Monopoly and is giving everyone who had a Virgin Elevate account by December 05 last year 10,000 Alaska Mileage Plan miles – just like that.

If they have been able to match the account they may have posted already – if not they will allow you to choose 10,000 miles or a $100 travel credit. Man – that’s a way to start a merger!

– Wells Fargo has a new offer for $250 checking account bonus; I doubt people will go for it in droves
