- About tomorrow’s report suggesting bus travel is AMAZING! by Wandering Aramean. It’s a shame because I actually think traveling by bus can make sense in a lot of cases (trips less than 4-5 hours).
- Kimpton secret password: Get free stuff. by Frequent Miler. Is there a page where the current password is kept updated? If not, I’ll create one if readers promise to tell me what the new passwords are.
- eGifter now has Vanilla Visa gift cards. Unfortunately maximum denomination is $100 and fee is $5.95.
- I understand a property not honoring elite status given the change of ownership, but the fact the stays don’t count towards elite status even though they were booked when they were in the program doesn’t feel right to me.

Regular posting should commence over the next few days. Thanks to Chuck for keeping the blog updated in my absence. I did try to post via mobile (this Starbucks post took me way longer than I’d like to admit) before giving up.
