This Week’s Top 3 Threads – July 5, 2014

1. $161 to Rarotonga

bedinh takes us all the way from soup to nuts on a fantastic spur-of-the-moment trip that was the result of a points mistake fare. And he flavors the report with an inspiring blend of photos from the airports, in-flight, and of course, Rarotonga.

2. Another Reason Frequent Flyers Are Considered a Bit Off

Remember back in 2008/2009 when times were grand? Airlines were offering double and triple miles promotions, and hotels were practically giving rooms away. Oh sure, there were some concerns about the stability of the world economies and massive world wars. But look hard enough and you can always find a dark side.

3. Great Bag: $30; Generous Travelers: Priceless

For my money, one of the reasons forums are still thriving – particularly travel forums – is due to posters like IsleofMan. Where else but on a travel community could you find someone who is willing to post an exceptionally thorough review of a $30 overnight bag, replete with a photo series of packing instructions?
