I don't have the head to totally scrutinize it right now but isn't SQ getting rid of all fuel surcharges after 3/23? Also you may want to mention that the free stopover is only on a roundtrip award but on a one way saver award you can add stopover for $100 which is a pretty sweet deal that I feel many people might not know about. Also I would go into slightly more detail about the Marriott night plus flight option as its really better than SPG's.

"Yes, that means even if you donít use the certificate, you can still get 1.76 United miles per dollar for your Starpoints."
Shouldn't that be "per point"?

Dan your recent post about the electronic ban, has a bunch of small spelling mistakes as double words, added letters stuck between the words amongst the post!
 But to top it all its a great post put together.

That's what happens with on the road posts combined with jetlag.
More helpful to post a comment on what needs fixing though.
