Hopefully this ToP Roundup series will give you some interesting tidbits and new information you may have missed during the week. If you see anything out there that you think others may find of interest please feel free to share it with me at Mark@travel-on-points.com.
Hotel Arbez: Where you can sleep in two countries at the same time – CNN Travel
What a cool experience. I have always wanted to go to the four corners spot in the US but this seems even better than that!
Part 2 of my infuriating experience using Singapore miles to book on Alaska metal – Miles Per Day
If you want the full back story here is Vinh’s first entry about all of this. Booking with partner can be a soul sucking, head banging experience at times. It offers you a ton of value but it comes with pain points, if it were easy there wouldn’t be value in it though. I tend to stick with a few different programs that get the job done time and time again to simplify things for me. I don’t mess around in the muck of Turkish’s program to book United or Singapore to book Alaska. Sometimes the juice isn’t worth the squeeze.
