Three quick updates:
1) Hyatt points go on sale tomorrow during Daily Getaways at around a penny a piece. These will be very difficult to get, so you’ll want to get in on the pre-sale at noon and the general sale at 1pm. You should like Hyatt on Facebook to get the pre-sale code and information (while you’re at it “like” TPG as well!). I will have a detailed post on which packages make the most sense tomorrow, but wanted to remind those especially in Asia that you might want to stay up late for this one!
2) I just got notice that Chase will pull the current 100,000 Avios sign-up bonus on the British Airways Visa on or before June 7, 2012 so plan accordingly if you’ve been waiting for your next round of credit card applications. I’ve written a lot about this offer and how it might make sense for a lot of people. Overall, it’s listed as my Top Deal at the moment and even if you can’t spend the $20,000 to get the full 100,000 – you get 50,000 after your first purchase, which I think is pretty generous.
3) I’m off to Dallas this evening for a big American Airlines press conference tomorrow aboard a “widebody aircraft.” They’ll be talking about premium enhancements, so I hope I’ll get to see their new business and first class in person. AA bigwigs like Virasb Vahidi, American’s Chief Commercial Officer, Maya Leibman, American’s Chief Information Officer and Rob Friedman, American’s Vice President – Marketing will all be in attendance. I’ll be live Tweeting from the event so make sure you follow me @thepointsguy so let me know if you have any questions you’d like me to ask.
