Deal of the Day: 40% Off Saucony Kinvara Running Shoes

Amazon has a new deal of the day every day. I certainly do not post every one of them as I do not feel they are all relevant in our space here. But, when something travel or running related comes around (and the occasional tech deal), I always post it so you can take advantage. Many people got in on this deal and, if you missed it, make sure you check each morning as that is when I post the relevant Deal of the Day!

Great Deal: Sony AS100V Camera 40% Off – Today Only

Unfortunately, some people did just that while one person hung up after waiting 6 hours to fix a problem that the airline and weather had called. Would you do the same?

Etihad To Start Flying The Apartment-Equipped A380 To New York

The Etihad Airways A380’s first class Apartments are incredible hard products for an airplane. I could not believe how spacious they were and comfortable.

Southwest Points Redemption + Foreign Airline Change = Big Headache
