πŸ“£ Monday Morning Mashup: Points News, EGT News, & Emoji Nonsense

Happy Monday everyone! Some quick updates to get the week started:

1) New post in the Member Forum. The Marriott Credit Card πŸ’³  has a 100k sign-up bonus. I explain why this card might not be worth your time. easygotraveler.com/forum

2) There's also a new feature in the Member Forum. I added a "Mailbox" πŸ“« section. This is a place where you can publicly post questions about anything travel related. Once or twice a week, I'll go in and answer any mail y'all sent to me!

3) A quick EGT update. The last month πŸ—“ has been amazing. I just wanted to highlight some fun facts and a few things that are happening behind the scenes:

- On Wednesday, two EGT members will be getting off an airplane in Houston. πŸ›¬ 2 hours later, two different EGT members will be boarding that exact same airplane. πŸ›« Maybe I should put you in the same seats so you can leave notes for each other! πŸ˜† This is the closest encounter we've had. One of these days, there will be a surprise collision of folks wearing Easy Go t-shirts πŸ‘• on a plane or in an airport. If you're the first, I want pictures!!!

- In the last week, I booked award tickets to Rwanda πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ό, Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ, and an around-the-world honeymoon🌏 (member honeymoon #2). But I give myself three gold stars ⭐⭐⭐ for the most improbable booking I've ever done: Business Class tickets for 6 people to Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί over Christmas/New Years. 🀯

- My developer πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’» is in the final stages of a HUGE upgrade to the member portal. I'll give you a sneak preview later this week.

- Member Amenity Kits are in stock (finally)! If you haven't received an entire kit (t-shirt πŸ‘š, backpack πŸŽ’, luggage tag πŸ›…, and credit card sticker bookπŸ’³), send me a message with your shipping address and t-shirt size/cut/color preference. I have:

Women 🚺:
- V-neck (purple or charcoal)
- Racerback Tank (charcoal or pink)

Men 🚹:
- Crew neck: (charcoal or aqua blue in all sizes, or a smattering of other colors in various sizes - royal blue, light green, dark green, red, maroon, brown)

Have a great week! β˜€ πŸŽ‰ Stay cool out there! 🍹🍻
