News and Notes from Around the Interweb:
- Club Carlson has announced hotel category changes. The category that each hotel is assigned to determines how many points the property will cost. It appears that about 100 hotels will be getting more expensive for redemptions, while about 150 hotels will be getting less expensive. The changes go into effect May 1, so you have through April 30th to book hotels at the old rate if you wish.
- Not really travel-related except that I’ve already seen this around the world in my travels: McDonald’s is considering all day breakfast and also delivery. One of the great mysteries of life and unsettle-able debates is what time McDonald’s stops serving breakfast. That argument could finally be settled. Hard to imagine margins high enough to justify delivery, at least without a delivery fee, though in parts of the world where labor is exceedingly cheap we see delivery already. None of which changes just how unhealthful most of the breakfast items are, though the hash browns when properly cooked are darned delicious.
