It seems AwardWallet is popular, some upgrade codes then!

Yesterday, I put out a birthday note for all of you. There is a return present as well for one of you in there. I asked you all: Leave me a comment on this post about what has been your favourite post(s) from my postings over the past three years, and why? Now, going through the comments on that post, apart from the fact that everyone has gotten obsessed with Citibank PremierMiles due to my fandom of them, the other most popular item out there is AwardWallet. I’ve done AwardWallet upgrade giveaways in the past, but seems it goes out like hotcakes. For those of you who don’t know, AW is a website that allows me to track my points…

Happy birthday to us! Let us reward you!

Oy! I am extremely apologetic I forgot my own blog’s birthday from last week! We turned 3 last Monday, and I just wanted to thank all of you for your hard work in earning your miles and travel feathers in India, and making us a part of your journey along. The journey, is the reward! Like I’ve said before, I started this blog to put out my travel experiences with miles and points, with a focus on the Indian miles and points space. And I think the timing was about right. When I popped up on the blogosphere in 2011, there were a lot of travel blogs about India, but nothing that focussed on travel loyalty, aspirational travel and how…

Did you get yourself a Myles self-drive?

Last week, I’d put out a giveaway offering the winner a self-drive car for two days with India’s only self-drive car service, Myles. Myles is available across 16 destinations in India, and they offer a fair depth in the variety of cars, so I wanted to make sure one of you gets an option on your car type and where you’d go with the car. The entries came in over a week, and Anant came out to be the winner: My best road trip has been exploring Ladakh with Leh as the base. The vast expanses of cold uninhabited desert, and the occasional village and monastery as well as the winding mountain roads and gorgeous scenery made it a journey…

Now, if you haven’t had an AwardWallet account ever,…
