Once seen as quiet retreats for businessmen on expense accounts looking to get some work done, lounges are now trying to serve a variety of purposes and, in the process, have become one more area of competition among the airlines and independent operators. Some lounges are offering spa treatments and expansive views of the tarmac, and most are upgrading their food options. A few have even added playrooms for families traveling with children. With the robust economy, more passengers than ever are willing to pay to get into the lounges, said Gary Leff, creator of the travel advice website View From the Wing. And that has added to a … [Read more...] about The Airport Lounge Is Much Improved, if You Can Squeeze In

Home Credit Cards Here’s Why the Amex Platinum Card is Worth the $550 FeeHere’s Why the Amex Platinum Card is Worth the $550 Fee June 11, 2019 by Out and Out If you can’t tell, I’ve been thinking about ultra-premium cards a lot lately. Which ones to keep and pick up… and my overall card strategy. All roads lead back to the Amex Platinum Card – the original, and a current stronghold. Several years ago, it was my first card that had a big annual fee. Lots has changed in the industry since, but it’s held up remarkably well.

The latest happened on a trip to Peru recently when one traveler asked, in amazement, “Why would you use a debit card to pay for an $8,000 tour? Are you out of your mind?!” The recipient of this question mumbled something about responsible spending and not going into debt, but the others at the table hit him with a barrage of arguments that had him saying, “Okay, OKAY—I get it. So what card should I get?” On the one hand, you’ve got to admire a guy who got to retirement age without putting things on a credit card. That restraint and fiscal responsibility are admirable. On the other hand, half the people at that table I was eavesdropping on had not paid for their flight—they cashed in miles to get to Peru. This guy, on the other hand, had … [Read more...] about Are You Getting All the Credit Card Perks for Travelers?
