  1. Re discontinued cards – I had an old Ink Bold that was just PC’d to an Ink Plus. Letter says Bold is being completely discontinued.

  2. I favor hidden fees, whether airline or hotel. Americans obviously benefit from never knowing what a flight with fancy choices like seat assignments, food, and checked bags actually costs before reaching the final screen when it’s time to pay for these extravagant selections. Likewise, hotel fees for modern amenities like paper news, access to this new internet thingy, actual cloth towels by the pool and local telephone calls is surely worth at least 20 bucks a night.
    Thank goodness the government stepped in to stop the rules that burdened the consumer with the true costs for these choices.
