Sweet Spot Sunday is a weekly series highlighting the best-value award redemptions across loyalty programs.

It’s no secret that ANA Mileage Club is one of my favorite loyalty programs. The program offers some of the best redemption sweet spots out there for international business class and includes free stopovers on most international awards.

One of the best ANA deals is off-peak flights to Japan and the rest of Asia. In fact, it’s cheaper than what most airlines charge for one-way in business class. Here, I’ll show you why this deal is special and how to book it with American Express Membership Rewards points.

Health insurers add food, meal delivery programs to coverage plans

Robert C. Williams

When COVID-19 first swarmed the United States, one health insurer called some customers with a question: Do you have enough to eat?

Oscar Health wanted to know if people had adequate food for the next couple weeks and how they planned to stay stocked up while hunkering down at home.

“We’ve seen time and again, the lack of good and nutritional food causes members to get readmitted” to hospitals, Oscar executive Ananth Lalithakumar said.

Last year, restaurants went to great lengths to remain open for business in the face of Covid; across the country, tents and gazebos were erected on lawns, while patches of previously unused land were claimed for greenhouses and pods to house guests observing the rule of six.

One restaurant went even further – with no outdoor space to plunder, the owners of Prawn on the Lawn in Padstow decided to up sticks entirely and set up camp at Trerethern Farm, which overlooks the coastal town. Thus Prawn on the Farm was born, and in two weeks, Katie and Rick Toogood will open their 52-seater restaurant in a marquee once more. ‘Round two is going to be bigger, better and more delicious than before,’ they promise, and it’s an ambition shared by many other venues that will welcome back customers outside from Monday.
