Another blog post from Mr. Deals…

Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there as well. I almost forget that this holiday is about getting together to eat turkey when all I hear about leading up to the week is how excited Mrs. Deals is about Black Friday and all the deals to be had. That said, even with all the planning for Black Friday, Mrs. Deals ended up with a shirt. Yup, that’s right, a shirt. Oh and she saved $5 by doing a price adjustment or something. I slept in.

But I would like to say that this was a very Happy Thanksgiving for Mr. Deals. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. On Thursday morning I woke up to a wonderful email telling me that I am now officially Platinum on AA (thanks for the applause). While gaining Select Status on Amtrak was a huge milestone, I do have to say this one takes the top honors now. Let me tell you the reason why. I now have the same status as Mrs. Deals! No more of her prancing around telling me how she’s got higher status than me. Woohoo! Oh, and it looks like she’s going to be losing her platinum status come February while mine will last into 2014. Can I get another WOOHOO! I mean this is exciting stuff for me.

Now that I’m done bragging, I hope everyone is traveling safe back to wherever you may have gone to for the holiday. Remember, there’s more to life than points and miles (though I don’t know how Mrs. Deals feels about that). Now I have to go prep for all those things I’m not going to buy on cyber Monday.

Until next week…

  1. Dear Mr and Mrs Deals,

    My AA Plat comp (thank you United) expires end of February. Guess who has an international flight booked for March? That’s right; and Mrs dhammer53 isn’t happy.

    Oh well.

    • @dhammer53 – oh well, but there is still time to earn it! Personally though, I don’t think it does much on international flights but get you extra miles if a paid ticket.
