Best lounge option at SEA? Depends on what you want
Now that the Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card has successfully swept much of America off her feet, there are a ton more Americans with access to the Priority Pass airport lounge network that the Reserve offers for free.
Some airports don’t have any Priority Pass lounges (Denver, Philly, Pittsburgh, San Diego), while some have several to choose from.
One of the reasons I love Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is that it offers easy access to four different Priority Pass lounges.
Which should you choose?
An app called Roadtrippers just changed the way I explore cities
I don’t work for Roadtrippers.
Nor was I compensated in any way for this post.
I just really like the app.

So is AA the best or the worst?
Hotel review: Don’t take a taxi to the Holiday Inn Express Affoltern am Albis outside Zurich
A few times per year IHG releases a list of hotels that can be booked for only 5k IHG points.
Problem is, they’re usually in the boonies.
The ones that are remotely close to a desirable location or not in the boonies sell out quickly.
Last September I lucked out, as one of the hotels on sale was just outside Zurich, where I’d already purchased plane tickets to visit.
Alaska Airlines upgraded me — to an elite status I already had
Alaska Airlines has been storming through the world of points and miles this week in celebration of its merger with Virgin America.
They gave away 10k miles (worth about $100) to all its loyalty program members who were also part of Virgin’s loyalty program, and those who were Virgin members but not Alaska members received a choice of 10k Alaska miles or a $100-voucher for Alaska flights.
My brother was a Virgin America member but not an Alaska member, and here is the email he received: Continue reading
