BA Blogger 'The Reward Boss' Bragging About Killing Deals

A new low for BA- this new blogger is setting up auto-distribution feeds for any great MR deals posted to the various sites including FT.

A quote from the post: 'Regardless of what others will think, I will be joining the band-wagon of deal-killers.'

Highly recommend you do not visit his blog or use his affiliate links.

There are good MR deals?

(OK, with MS and the right credit card, I guess a ~4 CPM deal's not terrible... but lo how the mighty have fallen.)

I don't see how this is a deal killer. Anyone can read the forum and share these deals. Deal-sharing services have been around for years. Trust me, an airline isn't going to fix a deal/glitch quicker just because it hit a blog.

Trust me, you are totally wrong. For e.g., US Airways fuel surcharge on BA flights (and there are dozens more).

The key is discretion.
