A few weeks back a scorpion attacked a woman on an Alaska Airlines flight.
I’d think this is an extremely rare incident. Due to the scorpion attack, the plane had to pull back to the gate so the woman could be treated, causing a 30 minute delay.
Well it looks like a scorpion again got onto a flight, striking again. Continue reading
Club Carlson is definitely up there as one of my favorite (if not the top) hotel loyalty programs around.
This is probably due to their generous offer for branded credit card holders. With the offer when you redeem points for two or more consecutive nights, the second night is free…
Other than that, they also run lots of great bonus offers and have a variety of good giveaways during the year. Continue reading
A little over a week back I wrote about how tourists were being banned by North Korea from entering the Pyongyang Marathon due to Ebola fears.
Then I wrote about how I was surprised to find out that North Korea had lifted their travel ban just a week later…
So what’s the deal North Korea??? Continue reading
Citi is offering some savings off your next check for using the app TabbedOut when dining out at a participating restaurant.
Based on what I’ve read about the app, TabbedOut can save you time and money when using it so it sounds like it’s worth looking into. Continue reading
This has to be one of the stranger pieces of travel news that I’ve come across in a while…
A JetBlue flight landed at JFK airport on Tuesday morning at around 2 AM. After everyone got off of the plane, the ground crew found one of the passengers hiding in the cockpit.
A little over a week back I wrote about North Korea banning tourists from participating in the Pyongyang Marathon due to Ebola fears.
In a sudden turn of events, the tourist ban has just been lifted according to an e-mail I received from Uri Tours, “the largest provider of North Korea travel in the US“.
The travel ban has been in place for four months now & was officially lifted on March 2. Continue reading
Last night I received an interesting offer from my US Airways Dividend Miles Mastercard.
The subject of the message was, “Earn 50% more miles from March 1 through June 30 2015″.
I figured that the message was worth giving a further look since I can’t say that earning extra miles is a bad thing! Continue reading
I received a press release from JetBlue with some very interesting and unexpected news…
The airline opened a boutique-style hotel in Orlando, Florida called The Lodge at OSC. While the hotel sounds pretty awesome, odds are that none of us will be checking it out any time soon since it’s not open to the public.

We heard about how selfie sticks could be potentially dangerous to works of art and were being banned in museums but who knew that taking a selfie could be potentially life-threatening?
Sometimes taking a selfie is a necessary evil. Maybe no one is around to take a photo for you or you want to take that group shot without bothering anyone else. But is it worth risking your life for? Continue reading
After writing about a recent experience loading my Target prepaid REDcard, I wondered if loads were being limited to $1,000 per day.
After many people shared their experiences, it seems like this $1,000 load by credit card per day rule is being implemented on a store by store basis.
Since I had to finish loading my card for February, I went back to the same store to see how things would turn out. Continue reading
