Episode Description

In this episode of the Miles to Memories podcast we recap Black Friday and Cyber Monday including which deals we pursued and which we didn't. Shawn earned over 200K Membership Rewards while shopping, but was this year as good as the past?

We also update you on a Capital One/Spirit customer service surprise and Mark talks about the final itinerary for his upcoming European Christmas Markets trip. We also dive into how to get ready for the end of the year in the hobby and which deals died this year that will be sorely missed.
