  1. Kristen Bell regularly holding court in the LAX Admirals’ Club would definitely increase my discretionary spending to and from LAX. Double if Craig Ferguson joined her. (Or if she had a sloth…)

  2. I sent that Priceline item to DoC because I was too lazy to post. Important to note that extra 10% is only for Priceline purchases and “other travel” which is not yet specified, any points redemption with the card must be for a purchase $25 or higher, and no partial redemptions allowed, so could be fairly hard to get that extra value unless the travel category is generous.

  3. Klark for most effort. But honestly, there just is NOTHING funny about SkyPesos and Delta. NOTHING. I thought your regulation post was a bit over blown, but then I think about Delta and think “well, maybe not.” All it takes is for Dougie to think DL has some great ideas and then the whole USA miles game goes into the shitter.

  4. @Why thanks so much for the fashion advice, though you seem not to realize that this is my personal blog. You may choose to read if you wish, though it seems an odd choice for you too considering your misgivings. Best, Gary

  5. $150 for RT AA/US econ tickets inside of 600 miles isn’t bad. Might be worth jumping on the BA thing if you hop around the East Coast, etc. a good bit.
