I had a post the other day talking about the “stuff” I fly with. A reader asked for links (I did not forget – just lack of time) and I wanted to pop them up for those who want to know. Now before you say:
“I use this and it is much better than the one you use”
I can tell you I have no doubt about that. Most of these items are low cost, and the headphones are nowhere near top end, but these things work well for me and I like them. If (OK, when) I kill them or lose them they are not that expensive to replace and again, they work for me. So here we go:
- My noise canceling headphones are Sony MDR-NC7
They are compact, light weight, do an OK job of reducing plane noise and have a nice long cord!
- My “power brick” is a ANKER 8400mAh
It has a 1a & 2a outlet and a flashlight built in. Charges my phone 2-4x and tablet 2-3x.
- My outlet splitter is a Moster Power laptop 3
It makes one outlet into 3 and has 2 USB power ports. Retractable plug is nice (nests inside). It just works!
So there is my list of “stuff”. Feel free to share ideas you have for items you love and use all the time when you are up in the air and on the go. Please include URL’s so we can check them out. And for fun, if you do comment about what you think of these or an item YOU like, you will have a chance to WIN one of the Monster Power splitters later tonight via Random.org!
On to a few more little bits of info you may find useful. I always drum into people’s heads to never just order or walk into a store. I suggest starting at say EVrewards.com and checking who has the best deal for points. I have, however, started to get most upset at EV as they do not list EBATES.com my 100% favorite site and not just because you and I both get a referral for them. Ask anyone and you will see they have the BEST customer service and when it comes to shopping portals that means a ton. I went to get some stuff from Staples and Ebates gave 4% and did not show up on EV. So please take note, for what it is worth.
Lastly, they say timing is everything and that is so true for me. Regular readers know I love to ski. I am using one of my AMEX buy-one-get-one free certs in January to go to Denver to ski. But, Frontier is also starting to fly DIRECT from SBN-DEN! So, for 40,000 points, with a little spend, and the below card, Lisa & I both get to fly to ski out west! Sweet. My round choices are firming up nicely and I need a card from Barclays anyway – Rene
