The Saturday selection


We’re trying out something new this week: a “Saturday selection” post with some quick hits from around the web on topics we haven’t covered that are well worth a read.

First up, get a free stopover hotel — even on an economy class award ticket — with Turkish Airlines. Turkish already has some great sweet spot awards that get a bit sweeter yet with this. Read all about it at View from the Wing.

Looking for a new path to Caesars Diamond after the Wyndham match left you hanging? Danny the Deal Guru notes that heavy bettors can match from DraftKings or Fanduel, which both have a presence in quite a few states. That said, the required status with those programs is not exactly entry-level.

American Express is going to open a new Centurion Lounge at Atlanta International Airport. It isn’t scheduled to open until 2023, but that’ll still be great news for those flying to and through Atlanta.

There is a new Alila Maldives property scheduled to open on May 1, 2022. It’s kind of exciting to see that this is only going to be a Category 7 property costing 25-35K points per night.

Love this Sat selection, and they are curated very nicely!


Digging the new post style. Reminds me of MEAB’s daily summaries.
