I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
News and notes from around the interweb:
- Where passengers connect through American, United, and Delta hubs. If you’re going through Atlanta it may be Florida, and if you’re headed through Dallas Fort-Worth it may be DC..
- Successful cell phone protection claim with the Chase Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card which also has in my view the very best initial bonus offer (80,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months) and offers great earning.
- The Economist: Airlines should think twice before devaluing their frequent-flyer points with appearances from my report that American loses money flying passengers and generates all its profit selling frequent flyer miles and the warning by a recently-departed oneworld airline executive that devaluations drive customers into the hands of low cost carriers.
- Pure awesomeness.

- What is luxury when caviar is airport food? an interview with the chef of Noma
Because many people think luxury in restaurants is just putting a big scoop of caviar on something.
RR: But see, anybody can get caviar. It’s going to sound weird, but it’s only money. Luxury is about experiences that are unique and caviar isn’t unique. You can get caviar at every single airport in the world. Caviar is airport food now.
