Here is some of the best travel news and notes from around the Internet:
- Loved this post from View from the Wing about what happens to your miles and points when you die. Best advice was to use something like Award Wallet (#1 in my rankings of the Top 10 miles and points tools!) so that your next of kin can still access your account
- I’m always up for reading about people’s redemption choices – here was a great one from The Points of Life – a 60,000 mile business class trip from Shanghai to Bangkok.
- As a Cincinnati resident, I loved reading the report of how the FCC nailed the owner of the Duke Energy Convention Center for illegal wi-fi blocking. Having been there several times and noticed how they block other wi-fi so they can try to charge you $80 / day.
- I try to vary my manufactured spending a little bit. My first foray into gift card reselling ended up in a disaster, so I could commiserate with Shawn from Miles to Memories bemoaning how Amazon lost his FBA shipment!
Up for more travel news? Here’s the previous installment: Well how long would it take YOU to hike 58 mountains?: 58 mountain peaks in 10 days, keeping travel expenses down, fighting lack of Hyatt award availability, a nightmare Frontier experience, and Alaska / Emirates
