Here is this week’s Top 20 from Travel Zoo!
Yesterday’s Winner of the One Year of Premium Service from ExpertFlyer is Dirk B from SFO with his tip “Most know about ExpertFlyer’s ability to notify you when award inventory opens up, but I also use it to notify when low fare inventory opens up on a flight I want to book. It beats searching the fares every day.” Because ExpertFlyer allows you to specify a specific fare class, instead of picking an award booking fare class you can select a revenue one and if inventory is published to that bucket you can be notified when the low fare inventory opens up. This is a great tip, especially if you’ve got some time before you need to book. Dirk, please email email@example.com to collect.
Thanks to everyone that submitted a deal / tip, keep them coming!
Citi Prestige® Card
- Annual Fee: $450 fee
- Foreign Fees: No
- Card Type: Bank
The increase to 50,000 ThankYou points for the Citi Prestige card may be a signal that Citi wants back in the game, big time. The sign-up bonus has just been increased to 50K points from the previous 30K offer. An added benefit is a $250 annual air travel credit each calendar year -- so, if you sign up in April, you'll receive the credit this year, and again in January of next year -- which more than covers the $450 first year fee. When you add in lounge access for you and up to two of your guests, you’ve added another $400+ in value. One more benefit worth mentioning is the fourth night free for any four-night hotel stay booked through Wagonlit Travel. And lastly is the $100 statement credit when you sign up for Global Entry and pay for it using the Prestige card. Don’t forget the ever-growing number of airline transfer partners that work with the ThankYou points program.
