May 29 Update: More American Express Business Edge Confirmed Multiplier Locations, the recipe for Cathay Pacific's Cathay Delight drink, Disney World set to reopen in July

Big thanks to American Express who saw our American Express Business Edge Confirmed Multiplier Locations feature from last week and provided us with more confirmed 3x points merchants. The updates are primarily in the office and electronics category and includes retailers like Apple, Best Buy, IBM and Sony. We also received an update the Car2Go codes as 3x points not as a 1x point merchant. Check out our American Express Business Edge Confirmed Multiplier Locations feature here.

If you have flown Cathay Pacific in business class or first class you should be familiar with the Cathay Delight. The signature drink the airline serves in those premium cabins and in their lounges. Since many travellers can't enjoy it in the air, the airline shared the recipe for the drink late in April for those who wanted to 'delight' in the drink at home. In case you missed it being shared, no worries they have posted a Google Doc with the recipe so that you can give it a shot.

CNN broke the news earlier this week that we will see Disney World reopen on July 11 with a phased reopening plan. Both Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom will open on the 11th followed by Epcot and Hollywood Studios on the 15th.  Disney has outlined the plan in great detail on their website.
