There was a lot of stuff in the blogs about killing deals. So, Travel is Free writes “Why I Don’t Kill Deals“. Good reminder to make everyone more aware who is the true hobbyist vs the “shrewd businessmen” who only surfaced recently when they smelled the dinero There are some commenters there who rip TIF and praise Milevalue. I am speechless!!

ON MY MIND
I am staying at the Radisson Blu in Chicago. I thought my incredible charming techinques at checkin willl work magic to get me upgraded to a suite. Instead, I got me a corner room ten square feet larger than a standard room. They wanted $50 for a suite and $30 for business lounge access. Nada about Gold Club Carlson welcome amenity. I knew from Flyertalk that I should not be expecting much. But what bothers me is the effort to pass the corner room as an upgrade and the great view (of surrounding buildings!) in a cheering mode. Maybe that would fly with others but not with me lady! Gold club, as expected, is not that big of a deal with Club Carlson really. The room is nice but a bit a little too far to the modern feel. When I came in the room it was freezing (choosing to travel in the coldest day of the year was a contributing factor!).
