PointsHoarder 27: Breaking news!

May 30, 2013

Does it actually count as breaking news if it happened 2 days ago and we’re just reporting it now? What if it probably isn’t all that important of a story anyways? What say ye, listeners? (And, yes, this should make a little more sense after you listen to this week’s episode.)

We covered a number of topics this week, including a couple parties in New York City, one for United featuring new uniforms and one for Delta featuring a new (sortof) building. We talk about getting lost looking for a lounge in Argentina and passengers possibly losing out on taxes for plane tickets.

There is even some discussion of points and what to do when you’re accumulating in a program (or alliance) which isn’t your primary. I bought the ticket because of the price, not the points, but it seemed a shame to let them go uncollected. Still, it took until option 3 before I found the “right” place to stash them (shortly before scuttling the trip completely.

All that and more this time around on the PointsHoarder podcast.

    Is there a reason that the audio only feed was removed? With the new podcast feed all of the articles are being downloaded in to my podcast application.

    • That’s definitely my fault, Chris. We had a bunch of issues with FeedBurner not working correctly so I migrated over to FeedBlitz. In that process it seems I broke the podcast-only feed. I think I have fixed it now but I’m not 100% certain. If you see other posts still showing up please let me know and I’ll get on fixing it.

      Thanks for listening.
