Pizza Week In Review For April 5, 2015

It was a busy week of posting while on vacation in Key West.  It’s back to home and the grinds of work and travel.  In case you missed any of it, here was the week in travel through my eyes:

Probably the biggest news of the week was that the Club Carlson Visa will no longer come with a free night for every award stay.  I’m not a big follower of the program, and a good number of friends have encouraged me to get more interested.  Without exception, every one cited this benefit as a primary reason to get involved.  There’s still a bit of time to book new award reservations and take advantage of the free night, but it’s going away.


As a bit of a bandage for that wound, Club Carlson is offering 30,000 Bonus Gold Points For Club Carlson Visa Holders.  Some folks have noted their e-mail didn’t come with this offer (at least one hadn’t had the card very long).  If you didn’t receive it, make sure to call US Bank and ask for it.  I’ve got to think if they value the customers in the portfolio they’ll consider offering it to you to keep you as a valued customer.

  1. I’m posting this from somewhere over North Dakota on AS 25 from Boston to Seattle. I’ve been an AA EXP since 2009, but have been flying Alaska more since they fly nonstop BOS-SEA, PDX, and SAN, three places that I have to go relatively frequently, and their airfares are often lower than AA. So, no complimentary upgrade, but 6A is a damn pleasant experience. I have underseat stowage because the bulkhead is a curtain instead of a wall, the buy-on-board food was pretty decent, and the crew is friendly.

    1. Corey, I can definitely understand the lure of nonstop flights for a frequent traveler. It’s the only reason I ever fly United. If I had to abandon AA, my first choice would be AS.
