The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. On a daily basis, I try to keep track of roughly 100 different blogs (try being the operative word) that have interesting things for you and I to learn from. Some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.

Get a $100 BP gas card for $90. HT: Doctor of Credit.
9 travel gadgets that “will change your life”, including a speaker the size of your thumb.
Finally, the picture of the day. Great shot of the airplane:
