If you don't want them I know a lot of other people that will take them. Every year the luggage tags represent a different United city. Last year was Houston. If you look on eBay, people make good...

I'm Stupid - Selected the Wrong Annual Benefit

So, I wasn't paying close enough attention the other day when I was selecting my 2 annual benefits for getting to 75 nights. Apparently, the first one (that I clicked through quickly) I picked five...

Yeah, with all their other technical challenges (that I cannot go into), it is far from a priority. I think you will sooner see a flying pig on their home page than see something like this...

The reality is that the solution to this problem is limited by the fact that they run poor, outdated technology. The simple answer would be to create 2 additional buckets - a 1k upgrade (PK) and a...
