I just might have enough Rapid Reward points to buy a one-way ticket, and then have to use some CapitalOne miles to buy the return ticket. I wonder if that might work against me if there is a sale later in the year.
Not sure about the Capital One miles, but it won't w/ the RR points. I used them to book a flight out to Vegas and then 3 weeks later they had a sale. I just changed my flight to rebook it w/ the new price and they credited my account back w/ the extra points. Of course I got an email today from them about the sale they're having from SJ to SNA, but it's only through mid-Dec. If I wasn't doing the Museum Exhibit in Simi Valley on the way home from the DL 1/2 Labor Day, I would've flown down in a heartbeat.

I haven't purchased from them, but have seen them at several expos. Personally, I like the cut of the skirts from Team Sparkle better.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.

Then got over excited and checked out to see what the hotels looked like, even though it's early. Sunday nights aren't looking good b/c of MLK. BW Stovall's is starting at $119 but BW Park Place prepaid is only $79 but jumps to $111 on Sunday night. A few others are up and you can book, but I think they're around $119 also. I really wanted to stay at Stovall's this year b/c it's right there, but the price difference is so huge. I think I might leave Sunday night and drive 1/2 way home and stay at a motel on 5 somewhere. I know it's really early, but it'll be interesting to see how fast hotels sell out b/w the race and the 3 day weekend.
I just booked that hotel! I got an email for a web price total $98 w/o parking.
