Posts That Caught My Eye

Carlson Hotels Bought by China’s HNA Tourism Group for Undisclosed Sum

Carlson hotels is the majority shareholder in Rezidor Hotels. HNA is a pretty big name already in travel with ownership stakes in a number of brands like Red Lion Hotels, Azul and Hainan Airlines among others. I wouldn’t worry about what will happen to Club Carlson quite yet. It is quite terrible already.

2016-04-28 What really happened to BigHabitat?

Good to see this blog back after a long hiatus. Other than a very flattering comment and a commentary on my sleep patterns, there are some interesting tidbits of information relating to reselling and MS if you look close enough.

Delta gives Bombardier big order for new C Series jets

Move aside Boeing and Airbus. Bombardier gets a huge boost today with the sale of 75 CS100 narrow body jets to Delta. These jets are going to be much more fuel efficient than what they replace which will be good for the airline in the long term.

Great Deals

$100 eBay gift card for $95 – No brainer. Use a Chase Ink for 5X Ultimate Rewards. Note: You can no longer use an eBay gift card to buy one though.

Speaking of eBay, there are a number of other gift cards on sale as well. No huge resale opportunities but a couple of ok deals.
