  1. “Easy Free Miles From Chase, Citi, Amex and Capital One Partner”

    Where is this in your article???

  2. It’s free miles from Emirates, which is a partner of Citi, Chase, etc. Definitely a poor headline.

  3. What part of “2000 free miles for joining Emirates Skywards” or “is a transfer partner of all the major transferable currencies” was not recognizable? Thanks Gary.

    Regarding the loyalty program predictions (by the former head of a major loyalty program), he notes an interesting metric. Contrary to traditional business experience, with some loyalty programs, it is cheaper to procure a new customer than it is to retain an existing customer. This might explain in part what’s going on with the hotel loyalty programs. Hmmm.

  4. Holiday party shenanigans!

    That loyalty consultant is very good with the predictions!

  5. The signup for the 2,000 free Emirates points is good thru 3/31/2022. Per frequentflyerbonuses,
    “As this offer is in place until March 31, 2022 you may want to wait to join to give you as much time as possible to use the miles.” So I bookmarked it and will get back to in March.
