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. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, 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.
Here’s what I’m reading about today:
Cheap Flights of The Day: Flights from the west coast to London for under $700. HT: The Points Guy
InsideFlyer Thread of The Day: $20 off a $300 gift card at Staples. So, free cash. And, plenty of bonus points if you use a card with bonus points for office supplies when you purchase.
For those trying to save a little money, Raise (a website that sells gift cards at a discount) is offering an additional 5% off through tonight on a wide selection of gift cards using the code TAKE5 at checkout. I have no skin in this game, but Raise does offer $5 for new customers who get referred by an existing customer. This is NOT my referral link (I’m not a big gift card buyer) but if you have one feel free to post it in the comments for others.
Potential free Amazon cash (could be targeted).
And, a funny old video with one of the smartest women I know (who just happens to be in the airline business).
