If you haven’t been following along with every word that I’ve written over the past week (and why not!), here are some of the top posts from Points With a Crew that you may have missed.

  • Free money at Staples! – As of this week, you can get a $20 gift card if you buy $300 in Mastercards at Staples (if you can still find them in stock!!)For some reason, my Staples store has a big sign saying “We are unable to activate gift cards at this time”



Would you take $1000 for a 9 hour delay

    ? – As part of a recent trip, I had the opportunity to take a “bump” on Southwest where I would get to my destination 9 hours later but might get vouchers worth somewhere close to $1000. What would you have done?

Brief social network interruption!!! Have you thought about following Points With a Crew on Twitter? Or maybe Facebook?
