    Discussion on Cats, Moggies and Felines in general [with Pictures]

    This is Caesar, purebred Ragdoll. He’s now 9 months old and 5.7kg, he is a monster. I am not sure what he was watching on the television.

    Gold yanked - thoughts?

    Yes. I actually know of a recent case where the banner appeared and status retained even though the status credits weren’t obtained.

    New York in December - worth the inflated pricing?

    I just had a look, the rates for Crowne Plaza Times Square have increased dramatically, however points are still a good option with the current bonus. $900 USD a night v 60000 points, 3 nights can be had for $1000 USD (80% bonus points, 180000 for $1000 USD, it was a lot better a few months ago).

    I've also found reward nights at Crowne Plaza for New Years Eve to be exceptionally good value, although I believe the redemption rates have risen. When I last looked I could buy and redeem points for less than $300 a night when the cash rate was $1800. Edit: Misquote

    No reward nights IC O2 London

    Possibly something in your preferences, perhaps log out and search, then log back in for the booking. I did a second search for dates in April and found availability then as well.
