Changed the 3% category on the BofA Custom Cash back to "travel". The domicile we moved to back in August finally got with the times doing online payments for rent. My hope is it will code as a qualifying travel category like it did at the old place.

That would be great.

 

Until the management company changed several months ago, our CA HOA payments coded as travel (and there was no credit card surcharge).

 

Neither is true with the new company.  :(

The Choice Privileges points have piled up. If I could talk Mrs. Vig into going to Europe, Choice points go a lot further over there, and the properties are better in terms of perks.

Same is true for the Radisson chain.

 

We enjoyed the Art'Otel in Amsterdam.

 

The Country Inn & Suites in South Sioux City?  Not an aspirational redemption.  :D 

 

What's her apprehension about Europe?

I think it has more to do with potential language barriers than anything.

I had the same concern the first couple of times. 

 

On my first trip I paid something like $125 for a cab from the Milan airport to our hotel (I arrived solo, at the end of TAD's conference) because I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to figure out how to use the train.  Now, looking back:  :lol: 

 

English is everywhere, at least in major cities and means of transport, and anywhere where there are lots of tourists.

 

Not in Europe but language-related, I had one experience in an off-the-path Okinawa restaurant where I was completely out of my element and had no idea what to do,

 

Thankfully the taxi driver I hired for the day eventually decided not to wait in the car while I ate lunch, and showed me on Google Translate that the item I was pointing at on a sign was pig intestines.

 

I was most concerned that it might be shellfish or possibly be made from seafood stock, which virtually guarantees that whatever goes in will simultaneously come out of every hole about three hours later.

Yeah, the Google translate app can be a life saver sometimes. 

 

My tales of dealing with squat toilets in Asia have not helped my cause in getting her to travel there either.

@Konrad2012, may he rest in peace, advised me to approach my Asian travels in descending order of how modern the countries are.

 

So far so good.  :)

Maybe at the end of 2022, I'll hit 50,000 Fetch points to get a $50 Hotels dot com GC. If I had to do more than scan a receipt, I wouldn't bother. The juice ain't worth the squeeze.
