News and notes from around the interweb:
- Never Let a Mile Go to Waste: Always sign up for the program (and track your miles with a site like Award Wallet).
- Don’t Link Your Facebook Photo When You’re Trying to Stay Anonymous: Accor hotels exec caught posting glowing reviews of his chain’s hotels on Tripadvisor and writing negative reviews about their competitors. (HT: Udi A.)
- Stay in a Hotel Bed Even When You’re Home: The W Hotel Store has promo code MDXTW for 40% off through May 31 (sometimes the codes don’t expire when they say they will). Good deal if you’re shopping for a bed. I have the Queen Plush Top with featherbed (the more expensive pillow top mattress sometimes sees reports of a ‘memory’ and may not last as long). They’ve got good, overpriced pillows as well.
- Pets Are People Too: There’s a new bill in Congress to require Amtrak to allow small pets in one car of most trains. (HT: sobore on Milepoint)
