The Best Christmas Travel Video Ever

There are some Christmas videos and commercials that are timelessly iconic. Coca-Cola’s “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” on the hilltop. Norelco’s stop-action Santa sledding down a hill on an electric rotary razor.  Hershey’s Kisses playing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.” For the past several years, WestJet, a low-cost carrier that’s Canada’s second largest airline has done commercials of the annual “Christmas Miracles” they’ve done.

Flying For The Holidays? Here’s What The TSA Recommends

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been the source of annoyance for many, and the butt of jokes for maybe even more.

Disney’s Tsum-tacular Christmas Tree & Village Is A Sight To Behold!

Imagine a 45 foot tall Christmas tree made completely out of Disney’s Tsum Tsum characters. Now imagine surrounding it with a Disney-themed snow village and train station. Pretty cool, huh? But here’s the best part – you don’t have to imagine it, because it really exists!

JetBlue’s Policy Changes, Star Wars Filming Sites Vacations + More…

From an historic hotel’s renovations, to a fun way to get priority boarding, here are some stories we saw this week that we thought were interesting. We hope you will, too:

There are several articles that talked about Christmas this week:

  • The Points Guy showed cities around the world with the most extravagant Christmas light displays.
  • Want to know how to get priority boarding by wearing your ugly Christmas sweater? One Mile at a Time can tell you!
  • Travel and Leisure wrote about how the entire country of New Zealand has an official Secret Santa program.

And in the non-holiday category…

  • Read Doctor of Credit to find out how you can get two entries a day into the Starbucks for Life promotion (Joe’s been doing this daily).
  • Speaking up about problems might get you some extra points or miles and Million Miles Secrets shared a story about that.
  • Joe had the same problem as Frequent Miler with the current AMEX offer with Google Express but he found a solution.
  • Loyalty Lobby wrote about the renovations to the Waldorf=Astoria in New York. It’s been closed for almost a year (right after our visit in early 2016) and they are finally ready to start.
  • Delta/Air France/KLM has new luggage-less transatlantic fares, as per View From The Wing.
  • Deals We Like reported that JetBlue is making big changes to their refund and stand-by policies and they’re not to to the customers’ benefit.
