35% Bonus for Buying Southwest Rapid Rewards

Southwest is running a 35% bonus promotion on buying, gifting, and sharing Rapid Reward points until April 24, 2016. Purchased points don't count towards the Companion Pass. In general, it's best to only buy miles/points for an upcoming award. I wouldn't take advantage of this offer for speculative travel.

Starwood isn't Selling to Marriott?

Starwood has accepted a higher offer from the Chinese Anbang. Marriott now has 5 days to match, and they have said that they will. Time will only tell who will actually buy Starwood, and what the future holds for the SPG loyalty program.
