– Hilton gives us a preview of the new ‘category’ assignments some hotels have a huge new bandwidth – try yourself

It seems for now the old Points & Cash bookings option is gone (I always use it at the Doubletree Kuala Lumpur). The new booking options should roll out by next week. Will there be many mistake rates?

– Alaska Airlines is back with a 40% Buy miles promo – no reason to buy speculatively but good way to top up with miles.

– the receiver corporation for Arik Air apparently peddled it to Ethiopian Airlines which promptly said no – Asky is gonna take over Western Africa now?

– the Personal American Express Platinum card now has the same bonus as the American Express Platinum Small Business card

You can get 75,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in 3 months. You may have to try a few times in Incognito mode (and maybe switch to a different location via a VPN) to make it show.
