Southwest Airlines will stop serving peanuts – USA Today

They are ending their long love affair with peanuts in August to protect customers with peanut allergies.  It is somewhat sad since airlines and peanuts have gone hand in hand for as long as I can remember.  But, most have started getting into other snacks as of late.  Biscoff Cookies and Delta’s snack mix are two examples.  I usually get Cheese Nips or something else when on Southwest anyways…yes I fly Southwest even though I loathe their boarding process some.

Changes to Starwood’s Popular Rewards Card Vex Travelers – Wall Street Journal

This rabbit whole just keeps getting deeper and deeper with Wells Fargo.  They were even gaming people on the merchants side of things.  Yikes.

Need a hotel award night opened? Email the hotel. – Miles Per Day
