Excellent post explaining the Thank You Rewards program because it has some ridiculously complex features.
I like flying Southwest because they make it so easy to fly them and they treat you right. You can check bags, you can change/cancel without punitive fees, staff seem to enjoy working for the airline and you can keep checking when there is a sale and save even more dinero!
The headline we all don’t want to see but we know it is for real: Why 2016 Will Be a Terrible Year for Earning Frequent Flyer Miles.
An interview of American Airlines CEO Doug Parker (known as Dougie among formerly entitled elites lol) over at Cranky Flier. I think he is doing a fantastic job for the shareholders and everyone at the company. Just not us #sosad
Another batch of the most inspiring travel photos at Matador Network last week. Always inspiring!
A Dozen Things I have Learned about Investing and Money from Groucho Marx – This is a long read on personal finance stuff and has several brilliant points!
Planes crossing the moon! Words do not begin to describe…only your clicks. Lol!
Beautiful wedding dresses from around the world. Very beautiful indeed!
And I leave you with this…
Okay, maybe you did not like that so here is another one…
I am staying at the Four Points by Sheraton Studio City for 18,000 SPG for 5 nights. The conference is at the Marriot in World Drive with a ridiculous “conference” rate, no thanks. I usually get an upgrade in the top floor as I have stayed here almost every other year as this conference alternates between Orlando and San Diego. Sadly, I did not because the hotel is overrun by Brazilians, hey I thought they had a recession over there! I got a nice room, the staff are very friendly here. But the hotel was sold last week and something happened with the liquor license and to my horror the bar is closed and no alcohol. Very sad as I really liked the staff at the bar. Ok, I got me the daily activity fee waived this way, works for me.
Renting a car with Thrifty through Autoslash, weekly rate for $161 all in. I got me a “Wild Car” for the first time, meaning they pick any car Compact or higher. I was hoping for a Ferrari but sadly I ended up with a Toyota Corolla, oh well.
Check out the latest and highest Hilton card offer and always read the terms with this company, ya just never know what you will find in them!
Don’t expect me much around here in the next three days, it is going to be three days of learning new stuff, meeting new people, checking out new tech, eating and drinking, and stuff like that. Unless you go nuts on my links and then I feel guilty I let you all down hehe.
