I try to mention brands because some readers ask. But I agree with this. I love Scotch, and most of what I own costs less than $100 per bottle. Same with Champagne. A good American brand of sparkling...

As you seem to know already, going over could mean a different rate applies. Some places charge by the hour and some by the day.

Your profile says you have AA EXP status. Do you have any elite status with Alaska Airlines? If not, that may be the issue.
