NPR Morning Edition – Presidential Coins Link

Here’s a link to the Morning Edition Story on buying Presidential Coins to get frequent flyer miles.  I’ll let everyone make up their own minds as to how ethical the practice is, but as stated in the article, it is not illegal.

NPR Morning Edition – $1 Presidential Coins

I just heard a promo for tomorrow’s NPR Morning Edition.  They are going to have some of the frequent flyer bloggers that I follow talking about how they buy $1 presidential coins from the U.S. Mint to get frequent flyer miles. I wrote a post about how people do this to get frequent flyer miles awhile ago.  I’m interested to hear what the show will say.  At the end of June, Morning Edition did a feature talking about how the U.S. Mint was mandated by Congress to create the $1 coins.  And the show was saying that no one wanted these coins and I remember thinking that wasn’t true because I knew people who are into the frequent flyer mile game did.

Award Travel To Hawaii

Travelsort recently posted an article on booking award travel to Hawaii.  Unfortuntely, it focused on first class award travel to Hawaii.  While I’m all for traveling first class if you have the miles to spend, I don’t have the miles since I’m trying to book award travel for a family of four.  And I’d rather save the miles for other trips.  I do like his suggestion of getting the Alaska Airlines credit card and using the $99 companion ticket.  And right now, that credit card has a 40,000 mile sign-up bonus.  So if you’re thinking of traveling to Hawaii soon, you might want to consider getting that card.  Since you’ll be paying for the flights, you’ll earn mileage.

Three New Credit Card Offers This Month

According to the Frugal Travel Guy, there will be 3 new credit card offers this month.  The first of these was the Southwest card that I talked about last week.  Based on his comments, I’m guessing that one of them will involve Starwood Hotels and the other United Airlines.  I’ll keep you posted as I hear more.
