AboutTPOL's Best Simply the Best: April 2015 May 9, 2015 0 What were the best posts in the world of TPOL for April? Here are the top 7: 1. Citi Prestige: Being Different Is Stupid The cool factor of a new credit card product is trumped when the actual purpose of the card, swiping, is rendered next to impossible. 2. Damn It Feels Good to Be a Churner Where did you come from lady and ooh won’t you take me there? 3. The Devaluation Walls Are Closing In! Save the date:April 15th Southwest will do who knows what to its redemption chart.June 1st: Club Carlson will have a bouncer at the door allowing you in only for one night.So the question becomes what to do before then and how to do it in the most efficient way? 4. Southwest International Is a Mess, Fly Spirit? One weird thing from my perusal of Southwest’s site is the amount that points tickets cost. Returning from Dominican, the taxes are $101. Checking ITA I noticed that a flight on the dreaded Spirit was $127 making that 7k great deal not great at all. 5. Citi ThankYou Premier Card Means New Pajamas! book a flight on SQ A380 stopping in Frankfurt on the way to Singapore in order to get two new pairs of Givenchy pajamas as mine are a little worn from overuse. 6. A Wedding in Scottsdale: Saying “I Do” to Points Spending a small fortune to go back to a place I once lived for a few days is out of the question. My sincerest apologies to the happy couple for my crass statement. 7. Club Carlson: Where Did You Go? Rather than focus on the negative, I’ve put together a scrapbook of the good times shared with Club Carlson at some of their best properties worldwide. We had a good time while it lasted.
