Avianca 3X1 mile purchase is back… again!
Avianca logo

Just like last December and last May, Avianca’s 3×1 miles purchase is back. I received again the following email from Avianca which states that if you buy a block of 1000 miles you will receive a total of 3000. This offer is only valid until the 4th of December and you must have received the email. What’s odd is the T&C mention that the promotion period is until Dec 19 but that refers to the parallel and less attractive 2×1 offer. The 1000 miles will cost USD $33 + tax. US residents can purchase by going online, calling the call centers (phone numbers here) or by visiting one of their offices. Other countries vary. This is a targeted offer for inactive accounts. A few points from the T&C: Only one purchase can be made during this promotion Min 1000 miles; Max 75,000 miles purchased (this went up from 20,000 in May) Must have received the

GTHQ Jaunt Journal: Chalet Ulysse – Zermatt, Switzerland
Matterhorn and beer

Since winter season is fast approaching, I asked a good friend, Valerie Grant, to review a property we stayed at in the Alpine city of Zermatt, Switzerland. Valerie is a loving wife and mother, philosopher, and avid reader. Here is her review: GTHQ Jaunt Journal – Hotel: Chalet Ulysse – Zermatt, Switzerland Location: Staldenstrasse 112, 3920 Zermatt; 5 min walk to ski lift and city center At 1’620 m high, Zermatt is the dream destination in Switzerland but even more so when the sky is blue and the sun is shining on the Matterhorn or Cervin as the French call it. No cars are allowed in the little town so you can truly feel the mountain atmosphere. It’s a great place to stay with friends because even if you don’t ski you can still enjoy the mountains and the views. The town is reached by train from Täsch (4h from Geneva Airport)
