The World’s First Underwater Villa Is Now Open – And It’s At a Hilton Property – Running With Miles

I don’t think this would ever be redeemable for points. If it was with the $50K a night price tag and .004 Hilton min redemptions you are looking at 12,500,000 points.  How many runs to the grocery store is that….hmmm :).

Icelandair Buys WOW Air – Iceland Review

Anytime there is airline consolidation it is usually bad for us.  Hopefully they will still have the great WOW Air sales after they combine but that is unlikely.  This coming after WOW Air pulled out of most of the Midwest.  Maybe they expanded too rapidly and they needed a life line?

The Billion Dollar Airline Routes – Travel Stats Man
I know there are a lot of aviation nuts out there that love this kind of stuff.

Chase Credit Cards Going Contactless – Doctor of Credit

I have never used the tap to pay feature on my other cards.  To be honest I never think of it and sliding it in the chip reader isn’t a big deal to me.  But I know others enjoy this feature and they should be able to use it with their Chase cards in the near future.
