Happy Wednesday to all of our travel friends, both near and far. Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
- One of the business segments hit the hardest by the novel coronavirus has been themeparks. Now that parks are reopening, with limited admission and additional safety restrictions in place, fans are wondering how the parks are handling the changes. We made a trip to Universal Orlando for their passholder preview and were mostly pleased about the way the park handled things, while some guests were less willing to follow the rules than others. In the past week, we read posts about the reopening of Dollywood and Hersheypark. It’s disappointing to see that the level to which guests are willing to follow the rules depends on their location and therefore, the political stances of people in that area.
- If you thought Chase was late to the contactless card party, it only took a global pandemic for Bank of America to start issuing cards to customers nationwide with contactless technology.
- I totally empathize with this post from Miles for Family about having to reschedule a trip to Japan from 2020 to 2021. There are numerous reasons I’ve hesitated to cancel our current plans, but one of them is that I’m waiting until I’ll be able to rebook shortly after getting all of those miles back.
- When you’ve accumulated several hotel credit cards, it can be possible to think that you’re getting too many free night vouchers every year. This post on Miles to Memories looks at that problem and asks if we should be more strategic about when we earn those free nights every year.
- I’ve always taken the slow and steady approach to earning points and miles with credit cards. While I want to maximize my points, I also want to become a valuable customer to the banks. I’ve often looked at those who push the limits and think I could never be like them. I never imagined that someone who was taking things to the extreme would complain about not getting a refund for a canceled ticket, eventually leading the airline to the learn of the scamming practices and shutting down all the involved accounts.
