Credit card?

I have that already. Unfortunately won't hit before EOY. Also, you need to spend 10k to earn 1500 tier qualifying miles

Southwest hotels. Book a night at a hotel nearby. There are often hotels with point boosts and can easily get 1500 a stay. Did it last year to hit companion, not sure if program is still up today bc of covid but worth a shot

Those points don't count towards tier status, only companion pass unfortunately.

Contact Southwest and ask what you can do? They are typically more customer friendly than the other airlines

I'll give it a try, thanks!

I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here?

Can someone explain the logic behind firms requiring masks only for unvaccinated employees? Transmission is the same whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, especially for the delta variant. The CDC’s website says that vaccinated individuals could “potentially” have lower transmission rates, but there’s no actual data to support this statement. It seems like a way for firms to encourage (instead of mandating) the vaccine but it ends up being a discriminatory practice. Thoughts?
