Via Business Traveller, China has just announced that as of January 1, 2013, it will be possible to have a 72-hour transit in Beijing without a visa for residents of 45 countries (including the US). The article does say that tourists will have to register with their visa at a police station within 24 hours, though I’m not sure how strictly that’s enforced.

Now, for what it’s worth I don’t think this will work for those doing mileage runs with direct turns to the United States. Shanghai currently offers a 48 visa-free transit, though you have to be continuing onwards to a third country. After all, if you’re arriving from the US and continuing straight back to the US you’re not really in transit. Though I’d love to be wrong, as that would be great news for mileage runners.

Up In The Air / Scary Story
« on: December 06, 2012, 04:25:59 PM »
Story from, Its scary because I use them for trading Delta Miles.

The reader purchased points for an airline frequent flyer program using A few weeks later the reader goes to log in to his frequent flyer account and it has been closed. He contacts the airline and they tell him to contact will only tell him that his account is closed.

At this point he reached out to me, and I happened to know someone at the airline. I contacted them and was told that requested that the airline shut down the frequent flyer account, and the airline complied.

After the reader repeatedly contacted he was finally told that the frequent flyer account was shut down because he had initiated a dispute through his credit card company. Except that he had never done this.

The moral of the story is this: has the power to shut down your frequent flyer accounts with, apparently, no recourse. This is a scary prospect (and similar to the reason why people are wary of using Paypal — they have access to your bank account and will take back money if they decide that you owe somebody). You can decide for yourself whether you should use, but just remember — they have more power than you’d expect.
