  1. What could be better than those Shang Tangs? By far my favorite keep sakes from any flight. (Along with the Virgin tea pot.)

  2. I would assume that ANY fax or email I get from Nigeria is a scam. Of course some people do have legitimate reasons to be hearing from there, but I think most are used to the idea that unsolicited stuff from Nigeria is always to be ignored.

    But the general warnings in the linked article are very good. I did get a fake email, and if you make lots of bookings with different places, as I do, it’s easy to lose track and not notice something that’s bad sneaking in with the legitimate emails.

  3. I hope this Radisson promo isn’t in replacement of the Big Night Giveaway.

    I’m worried that now that the Radisson card exists that promotion would be far too lucrative for them to run again.

  4. Chris: Radisson did a similar promo to this the same year as the big night out, so I don’t think it would be intended as a replacement (though it remains to be seen if BigNightOut is occuring)
