  1. My favorite property is the villa in Aix-En-Provence

    Not only located in a beautiful region, and can accommodate me and family, it’s going for only 6 Euros at the moment!


  2. I’m confused about the Amex-Virgin America bonus to earn gold status. The link you gave has the Amex-Virgin America bonus ending on 10/8. You say that something ends at the end of the year. The Virgin transfer link says nothing. So, is it that the Alaska match is only for transfers that occurred before 10/8 and that Alaska will honor those matches until the end of the year, or was the Amex-Virgin America bonus extended from 10/8 to the end of the year?
