- My favorite thing of the week. JAL had a flight where mans (or woman’s) best friend could travel in the main cabin. This is something that I support whole-heartedly, even more so without the need to pursue the emotional support animal approach.
- Matthew writes about effective complaints. I personally prefer the practice of asking for a gesture of goodwill .
- Baltimore-Washington International Airport will continue growing its international terminal and international reach. I have to say, I’m truly impressed with what Southwest has done at BWI, it’s not something that you see terribly often, that is, an airport grow as fast. I suspect Houston Hobby is in a similar situation.
- Bookmark this one – the schedule change policies for 30 airlines from MileCards.
Miles and Points:
- MileNerd reports a way to get some Delta SkyMiles bonuses. Things like this that virtually no time to sign up are generally no brainers for me, hopefully you feel the same, even if you don’t travel on Delta much!
- Chasing the Points reports that he’s been banned from Target. It’s unfortunate, although I’m awfully surprised to see the amount of product he was buying per month; I’m even more curious how much of that actually arrived in good condition.
- Vinh declares that 2017 is the year of gift card arbitrage. I have to admit, I’ve dabbled in gift card reselling, but for the most part have stuck with product reselling.
- A great interview of a friend and fellow reseller, Haley!
- Gideon, aka FQF, now has another blog (and alias?) Independently Financed. I think this will be an interesting read. Don’t be afraid, he hasn’t given up travel hacking just yet.
- If you value your privacy, read this post, and opt out. Do it now. I was impressed with what they had associated with my file.
