  • I don’t know if you’ve enrolled in the IHG Priceless Surprises promotion (hand writing 94 index cards / envelopes for 47,000 IHG points), but Deals we Like is reporting that the first emails are coming in.  So if you were worried that it wouldn’t work, it looks like it’s now safe to proceed.  Here’s Mrs. PWaC dutifully filling out envelopes


  • You may already have seen Frequent Miler’s (insane) plan to use over a million Virgin Atlantic miles to book one week on Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island.  It looks like he’s finally gotten all the points he needs, and has booked his week-long stay on Necker Island.
  • It looks like there may soon be a new tallest building in the world.  Visiting the Burj Khalifa (as the world’s tallest building) is on my travel bucket list, but I’m not sure how I should handle my list if a new tallest building actually opens?
