    It'd have been better if I'd been able to include a Mandarin Oriental credit card shill link.

    This looks like the year that AT&T will lose most of our business, except maybe Internet access and a landline.

    Moving to Consumer Cellular will save us about $120 per month. Dropping Uverse will save us another $80.

    So...

    There has been many years since I flew UA, I got an email about my travel bank account, seems they cash you out. I got a $130TCV now and nowhere to go.

    Evenin', Box.

    Convinced my reunion co-chairs that our theme should be "Tiki Bar".

    A successful day.

    Seeing that I am sitting on a plane leaving out of LAX, I suspect I might be "working from home" tomorrow.

    In the past couple of weeks I've stayed in a Microtel, 2 Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, a Sheraton, a courtyard, and a Renaissance. The Fairfield was the best. The Microtel beat the courtyard and one of the Hamptons. The worst is the Renaissance I'm in now followed by the Sheraton. The lower tiered hotels have really up their game with their recent remodels.

    Not that US airline lounges are meant to impress, but the ORD T5 Swissport lounge is the LGA or airline T5 lounges.

    I have been given a big sloppy hug and kiss by the UA love monster. After a week in the islands with my beloved +1 I could use a little ME time and UA is providing it! After checking in for our return flug I see that I am #1 and she is #6 on the UG list. At this time there are four seats open. Any quesses on who sits in the back?

    ...and sometimes approaching $200/night. :eek:

    Agreed on the 4-pts. Much cheaper than the Gateway and still an SPG. I love the lively bar as well. :)

    Lost my Priceline bid at 85$ Currently have the Marriott for 125 after the Amex offer. I will see what else comes up deal wise. I have no qualms about not getting points from this stay. I get in at 1 am and just want easy to get to and a good price.

    OK, where the heck do I enter my updated passport info at UA.com (I'm in my profile... but can't find it!)
