American Express appears to have eliminated a key perk of Fine Hotels & Resorts in Las Vegas: no more $100 resort credit for food and beverage. But a much cheaper credit card is here to save us!
The topics of “independence” and “travel,” got my mind going a bit. I thought about “free agents”: people who shop around for the best deal and don’t stick to just one airline or hotel loyalty program.
Many Rene’s Points readers are very loyal — or at least rather partial — to Delta Air Lines. Because I’m a Delta Medallion and fly the mothership during 90% of my travels, really I’m not an airline free agent per se.
Hotel-wise, that’s a different story. That’s where I am a free agent and I must say — I kind of like it.
Like most things in life, it has its pros and cons.
