News and notes from around the interweb:
- Frequent Miler reports that the 4th night free hotel benefit provided by the Citi Prestige Card is now valid on AAA, AARP, and military rates. More and more the card seems as though it’s providing truly outsized value.
- Conde’ Nast Traveler has a new page on their site dedicated to their ‘world’s top travel specialists’. I’ve been a part of that group since 2010 and am honored to continue to be there for my award booking service.
- Where to eat at the Austin airport. Options are above average, for sure.
- Since British Airways moved US-based members of its business program into American’s Business ExtrAA it was clear the Business ExtrAA program would need to start offering British Airways and Iberia redemption options. And now it has.
- Scott Mayerowitz goes to the airport asking folks with oversized carry-on bags to open them up. I never knew that men’s wedding bands were a common item found in unclaimed baggage centers.
