    Southwest is my favorite, b/c it’s so easy to build up enough miles for rewards!

    • admin -

      June 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm

      Yes, southwest has a good program, I haven’t used it in a while, since I mainly fly international, but would use it for positioning flights if needed.

    Dying to get back to my second home and family. It’s been 16 years on my honeymoon. Want to show my children. Not of Norwegian descent, my family lived in Oslo for a year in 1969-70 when I was 11 and went to a Norwegian school. Returned several times as an adult, reunited with friends, gaining new experiences. Four decade relationship became a book.

    • admin -

      June 18, 2013 at 6:29 pm

  • Brian Smith -

    June 19, 2013 at 3:27 am

    Southwest Rapid Rewards is my favorite…with an ailing parent I fly Dallas-Denver frequently and earn free flights quickly…plus, their customer service is truly top-notch!

    • admin -

      June 19, 2013 at 12:19 pm

      they do have a great program!

  • Alan -

    June 19, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    Why do you send these contests offers to people/counties who are ineligible to receive when you see the details in the offer?

    Cannot anyone detect the valid countries of origin?

    Wastes my time and angers me to be excluded from the contest while being included as a possible customer.

    • admin -

      June 19, 2013 at 4:02 pm

      Alan, how did you get notice of this sweepstakes? If it was through email, I apologize, but the program I use is no sophisticated enough to realize you are in the UK and that the contest is for USA citizens over the age of 18. Sorry:(

    When I clicked to follow your RSS feed I got a message back saying there isn’t a feed. Is there one? If so it may need to be linked to the Facebook entry.

    • admin -

      June 19, 2013 at 4:01 pm

      Just sent this issue over to PromoSimple, the company running this sweepstakes for me to see if they can correct the issue. Will let you know here soon.

      • admin -

        June 19, 2013 at 4:13 pm

        Here is what the IT Promo Simple guy told me: “I used the link that you setup and that points to your RSS feed and everything seems to work properly. The RSS feed and Facebook items are and should be separate items.” He says it is all in proper working order when he tried it.

  • Nicole W -

    June 19, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    My favorite is Priority Club Rewards, because your points never expire! I belong to a more expensive hotel chain loyalty program as well, but I always have to worry about my points expiring with them. Love Priority Club 🙂

    • admin -

    My favorite loyalty program is American Airlines because it has been relatively easy to use.

    • admin -

      June 20, 2013 at 6:43 pm

      I agree Joe, I really like American Airlines as a loyalty program.

  • Sean -

    Priority Club Rewards are my favorite hotel loyalty program. Priority Club Reward points are great. There are family hotels everywhere, the hotels are by and large fairly new/renovated, and the minimum number of points required for redeemed nights are much lower and easier to find compared to other hotel loyalty programs. AAdvantage is my favorite airline program

    • admin -

      June 20, 2013 at 6:46 pm

      Good to know, I need to look into Priority Club Rewards a little more, I use Club Carlson, Hyatt and SPG the most. I do like American Airlines as well.

  • Theresa Nemeth -

    June 20, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    My favorite loyalty program is Wyndham Rewards. I just seem to use it most often when traveling.

    • admin -

      June 20, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      I don’t think I have ever used their program, you may need to teach me a few things about them!

  • Delphia -

      Stephanie, learn to earn rewards without traveling so you can travel! Read, read, read all the points blogs. Start with First2Board and BoardingArea.com for the daily reads and then pick your favorites. It is a game that you will enjoy playing as the reward is travel.

  • Anne C -

    June 25, 2013 at 7:41 am

    • admin -

      June 25, 2013 at 9:09 pm

    I am not sure what my favorite loyalty program would be as I am not a member of any, but hotel/airfare would seem the most “rewarding” I would think.

    • admin -

      June 26, 2013 at 3:48 pm
