Anatomy of an Award: A Trip to Egypt

With its Giza pyramids, Sahara Desert and the Nile River, Egypt is known for many things and therefore is a popular travel destination. I must admit that this African country had been on my bucket list for an embarrassingly long amount of time, and I’m happy to share that I finally checked it off the list.

Egypt opened borders in July to travelers who can provide a negative PCR test for COVID-19. A visa is also required for U.S. citizens.

This has been a very strange year for miles and points. We didn’t get a chance to travel and spend a lot of points but we sure did get quite a few great earning opportunities. We saw high-value increased offers, such as the five free nights up to 50,000 points each with the Chase Marriott Boundless card, an updated welcome bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and the overhaul and update of the Chase Freedom cards line up.

Never to be outdone, American Express also keeps surprising us.

When Was the Last Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus?

American Express Membership Rewards, Citi ThankYou Points, and Capital One Miles, three of the four major transferrable point currencies, periodically run transfer bonuses to airline mileage partners.
