Regarding the star alliance gold discussion, i believe asiana should be listed at the top of the list of international carriers for easy star alliance gold. There is no requirement to fly them, the requirement is 40k from any star member and the biggie is that you get 24 months to accrue that 40k for renewal. I have not found a better source of star gold. that said, I am still cruising along with Singapore gold from brex transfers last year but am crediting paid flights to asiana so at some point i will switch over my long term gold to asiana. You can find their terms here.

Firstly… thanks for the tips from your Dubai Trip.
My question is regarding Alaska Miles. is a redemption on Alaska on Qatar Q Suites a fully refundable ticket for free ? or are there fees to cancel last minute with Alaska ? and a more specific question… i am from Toronto and I need to get to Montreal to fly Qatar as Qatar does not fly out of Toronto… how do I use Alaska miles to fly from Toronto to Montreal to catch the Q Suite flights from Montreal ?


Hey Greg and Nick, I won’t be able to attend the YouTube live, but I had a question for you. You have a RRV for American Airlines miles at 1.3 CPP, will you be able to calculate an RRV for American Airlines status points? Thanks guys!


Do you think that Hyatt will offer an accelerated path to Globalist again in 2022? Alternatively, would you expect the mediocre Hyatt card SUB to change anytime soon?


We’re checking in to Miraval Arizona on Sunday – please share any suggestions/recommendations! A lot of the experiences we wanted to book are full (our fault for waiting to book so long) – is there anything to do there if you don’t have a lot booked?

I am a Marriott Titanium Lifetime Member (but not a fan of Marriott compared to Hyatt Globalist). What is the fastest way to acquire 200,000 Marriott Rewards points? I am floating points for a summer booking but need to find the 200,000 points within 60 days. I currently have the Chase Marriott Boundless card, Amex Marriott (old SPG) personal card, Marriott Amex Business Card. Player 2 has the Chase Marriott Boundless card and Amex Marriott (old SPG) personal card. I am not willing to take on another premium card with a $450 or more annual fee.

The current Marriott sign up bonuses are meager at best. I have been waiting for some type of sign up bonus increase from Q3 and Q4 of 2021, but nothing has changed. I can get 20,000 per referral sign up, but similar to an old post, I don’t want to direct people to sign up for the Marriott cards now as the offers are not good. Maybe there is a way to MS at a Marriott Hotel? Do they sell Visa Gift Cards at the front desk? Even if they did, would anyone know how to actually sell those?

Thanks in advance.


Have you noticed the disappearance of the United awards calendar? I also don’t see any biz class designated as saver awards either. What is the best way to find saver availability now?


FM Crystal ball: by summer, Travel restrictions and testing… Easier? Harder? Same?


My question is if you guys think that southwest will do the tier qualifying points boost for people that want to get a-list or companion pass this year like last year.
