Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these travel bloggers don't necessarily know every trick in the book (if it can even be called that).
Some things are just SO commonplace, it's very surprising.

30% transfer bonus from MR, anyone that was targeted doing this?

Gets you about 3.6cpm. Not bad.

Is anyone on DDF doing this?
In his latest post, he mentioned that the stay is only available during hurricane season. I'm guessing he didn't know that when he started this process.

Hope he isn't going alone. Must be so boring and lonely alone.

Seems like the worst 7 figure redemption ever.

I think he knows that. Probably writing it off as something he can fill blog posts with and consider it a "business expense".

You can tell from how reluctant he is to transfer his MR with the 30% bonus.

It's only 6 figures with the promos, and it's possibly the most aspirational redemption out there.

Crazy that the island seems so bust they can only offer him a date in 10 months.

Prob isn't, they're just giving hurricane season because they don't want to chance paying guests with that.
