In this series I will share articles I found interesting from all over the web. These will be articles about miles, points, travel, finance and everything in-between. Hopefully this ToP Roundup series will give you some interesting tidbits and new information you may have missed during the week. If you see anything out there that you think others may find of interest please feel free to share it with me at Mark@travel-on-points.com.
People flying on American Airlines say they want flight attendants to shut up about the carrier's credit card deals and stop the mid-flight advertising spiels – Business Insider
I see most airlines doing this but AA seems to be the most pushy. At least they have solid offers though. I don't mind it as long as it is at the end of the flight. You can't do it while people are sleeping etc.
I will say that nothing kills me inside more than seeing someone take that Spirit Airlines credit card offer from the flight attendant. Although I doubt Spirit thinks as little about their program as Frontier does.
TSA PreCheck Adds Four New Participating Airlines – Travel Pulse
I'll take 4 obscure airlines for $500 Alex.
