Tips, news, and deals from around the web:
- Ever wondered why your hotel key card stops working, even if you’ve been dilligent about keeping it separate from your phone and and magnets?
- A Tokyo hostel lets you sleep in the stacks! Beds (sleep pods) are incorporated into the bookshelves
- The TSA is looking for good homes to adopt retired bomb sniffing dogs (and drop outs). Benefit: At least they probably are already potty trained and respond to “sit” commands 🙂
- It looks like the problem with NYC cabs and fake cabs stealing people’s credit card info is still going on. Reader Steve just shared that his credit card was used for over 30 bogus purchases including multiple taxi rides, fast food and Victoria’s Secret. Yet another reason to take Lyft or Uber!
- Sign up for a Birchbox subscription by November 9 and get $10 off a $35 purchase in the shop (code mailed after signing up). If you’re anxious to sign up this is a good deal, though Birchbox often runs a sale on 6 and 12 month subscriptions in December so if you can wait, it might be worth it!
- As part of their countdown to Black Friday deals, Amazon has this really cute patent satchel for 71% off on a lightning deal. I do not need another purse, I do not need another purse…
