December 2011 In Review (+85,889 Miles/Points)


Quick note: I started doing these “In Review” posts with the September 2011 close, so this is my fourth one. Every one of them has featured a gain of more than 68,000 points and the average has been just over 105,000 during those four months. I’m pretty happy with those results. I’m not sure if that pace will sustain for all of 2012, as it’s possible that I will have a (local) move later this year so I’m taking it easy on the credit card signups, but we’ll see how things roll.

As most of you know, at the end of each month I do a Month-in-Review posting that details my activity for the month ending. “The Month in Review” posts don’t list things like TopGuest, e-Miles, e-Rewards, MyPoints or My Coke Rewards in the Accounts list. I do list transfers from those programs into “real” loyalty programs, so you’ll get the idea anyway.

    Happy New Year!
    btw, I could not see Choice Privileges listed in my TopGuest. Weird..

    From what I can tell, Choice and TopGuest ended their partnership with the turn of the year. No points have credited for me to Choice this month, and they’re nowhere to be found on TopGuest’s partner lists.

    Oh well, United is coming to the partnership. You can sign up for the linkage, and get emails when you check-in, but nothing has posted for me, yet. They’re not on the partner lists either, but you can link them here. There is a article about it at Reuters.

      Interestingly, 150 Choice Privileges points posted for me yesterday. Maybe they will eventually catch up!
