Tips on Points

If you are addicted to accumulating loyalty points, or even if you only accumulate them on a couple of cards or airlines, you can benefit from the advice given by the points guy, He covers most airlines and their frequent flyer programs, as well as major hotel chains and credit cards with links to airlines or hotels.
For the recent major snowstorm in the northeastern U.S. and Canada, he had a post with suggestions that could apply to any massive weather event. With many airlines cancelling large numbers of flights, most of them offered re-booking without charge. In a case like this, the best thing to do is to re-book as soon as possible, in order to get the best chance of reaching your destination quickly when flights resume.
Another post discusses the likely effect on frequent flyer programs of a possible merger between US Airways and American Airlines.More than a decade ago, I was able to use miles accumulated on US Airways to book a flight to Buenos Aires on American.
 There were a number of posts on the frequent flyer I use most often now, Air Canada's Aeroplan, and information on special promotions where double mileage is awarded for a short time.
I've never had the patience to spend a lot of time maximizing the benefits from loyalty programs, but if you do this is definitely a site worth a look.
