Posts That Caught My Eye
Here are some posts and news stories I have come across that I felt were interesting enough to share. Enjoy!
An interesting statistical look at which countries are actually the most dangerous for American tourists. They use data such as actual deaths and State Department travel advisories to see which countries are safe and which are not. I do wonder how many of these deaths if any are work related. Definitely an interesting read.
There is a controversial bill being considered in Nevada about the renaming of McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. Harry Reid and his supporters want to name the airport after him while many others oppose it for obvious reasons. Harry Reid has been a controversial figure in Nevada, but he is highly connected and I would be surprised if this didn’t happen.
United is flying their brand new business class product domestically for a short while before rolling it out internationally. Here is a first look at the new product. It definitely is a HUGE improvement over both their 8 and 6 across business class products, but I am not convinced it is better than a Reverse Herringbone seat such as what American and Cathay Pacific have. There are also reports of delays from the manufacturer, so it might be awhile before you run into one of these.
An interesting look at reselling a hot product in high demand. I too had some Nintendo Switch units and decided to send them all into Amazon FBA. It took awhile for them to get into stock, but I actually did quite a lot better than if I had sold them locally. Of course I could have lost if they had come back into stock during the time it took to ship them to Amazon, but I predicted Nintendo would have a short supply (which they are known for) and it seems I was right.
A small quirk with how redemptions work on this card, but it probably isn’t worth tossing away yet. There are other 2% no annual fee cards, but this is perhaps the highest profile card and thus a lot of people may have it. I personally would take the Chase Freedom Unlimited myself, but everyone has different priorities.
Have a great weekend!
