Welcome to the weekend!

Did this week feel extra long and busy for you all? It sure did for me… I was just barely hanging on like Leo in Titanic.

🏆 Favorite pick of the week: We launched a NEW GIVEAWAY to Costa Rica!

You best believe that if I won (I can’t… because I work here…), I’d get my butt on a flight immediately to get to this dreamy oasis 👇

🥇Act now to protect your points

This is something that all of us at Daily Drop really care about, and we hope that you do too!

We love our miles, points, credit card perks, loyalty programs, and especially our payment security when we use credit cards.

But all of that could be in jeopardy if the Credit Card Competition Act (CCCA) is passed by Congress.

It’s all a bit dense, but we’ve got a nice SparkNotes version that will highlight what this act is, what it could mean for the travel industry if passed, and what you can do to help protect your points and payment security.

Please go read it here and consider voicing your opinion 👇

And speaking of points…

🥈 Why you need UR points in your life

As I’ve mentioned many times, we really freaking love points around here. 

I almost love my transferable points more than I love my cats… and that’s saying something 👀

But there are several kinds of points—I’m thinking of MR points, Capital One Miles, ThankYou points, Bilt points etc. etc.

But then there are also UR points (and two of our best cards that earn these points currently have elevated offers, btw).

So what makes UR points so special and different? Why do you need them in your life? What is the meaning of life?

Sorry, I got carried away with that last one.

But to get all your questions answered about why UR points are so dang valuable, head over to our Thursday newsletter where Mike does a nice, thorough breakdown and gives you all the answers.

📣 Quick Callouts

That’s all for this week! I hope you enjoyed catching up on the latest and greatest in the travel world.

And with that, I’ll talk to you all next weekend 😎
