Thank you for the quick response. So if I do this itinerary, I might as well just price it as three individual rewards (NYC-Vancouver, Vancouver-Halifax, Halifax-NYC)? Thank you.

For what it's worth, we went to Bermuda over X-mas, and it was pleasant, though generally about 70 degrees. Presumably it's warmer in March. It met our purposes for a family trip (short flight,...

Malta?

Went in June with wife and 2 year old son. Westin was perfectly fine, though Hilton (5-10 mn walk away) seemed somewhat nicer.

That's a great point. I've never actually done a balance transfer -- any problem with, say, incurring the charge on an AMEX and shifting to a Visa? Any weird restrictions? Thanks.
