One Stop Travel Roundup: 6,000 Flights Canceled, Win March Madness Tickets, Credit Scores Rising, and Heartwarming Travel Story of the Week

Welcome to the One Stop Travel Roundup from Points, Miles, and More. Your briefing on important happenings in the world of travel, airline miles, hotel points and more.

  • Winter Storm Stella is hitting the Northeast. Airlines have canceled an estimated 6,000 flights. Remember always to advocate for yourself if your flight gets canceled. Great tips from One Mile at a Time here.
  • Starwood continues to offer the ability to use hotel points on experiences including the Final Four and Coachella. They also are offering a little known about sweepstakes with a chance to win March Madness tickets.
  • Getting your next travel credit card may be easier. All three major U.S. personal credit monitoring firms are going to remove tax liens and civil judgments from credit reports if they are even missing one piece of identifying data. This is estimated to boost scores by 20 points on average for over 11 million people.
  • In a heartwarming story, a woman bought a stranger a $750 plane ticket for his daughter after he hadn’t realized his daughter would be 2 by the time of the flight and need her own ticket.
