SPG Hot Escapes, More Freebies from Amazon & More
Highlights and deals from around the web:
The latest SPG Hot Escapes have been announced and they’re not that exciting honestly. 20% off the Sheraton Maldives, 6 properties in Australia (though most only 15% off). 22% off the Westin Paris-Vendome and 21% off the Le Meridien Barcelona was more appealing. You can view all deals here.
Malaysia cares about their image a little too much. Malaysians who discredit or ridicule the Government in whatever way can be barred from travelling overseas for three years.
When I posted about Amazon’s “free sample boxes” offer yesterday they hadn’t listed them all, some of the more appealing ones in fact. There’s a Men’s Grooming Sample Box (worth $19.99), Cookie Sample Box, Snack Food Sample Box, and a Women’s Skin & Oral Care Sample Box (which seems more appealing than the original beauty box) .
How it works is you buy a sample box and then receive a promotional credit towards the purchase of select items in that category, essentially making your sample box free.
Amazon also has 3 Tumi Bags up to 50% off as their Deal of the Day as well as up to 50% off Crocs. Crocs actually makes decent looking shoes, just skip the traditional clog style and go straight to the boat shoes and sexi sandals.
Interesting piece on “The Evolution of Women’s Workwear, From Shoulder Pads to Exposed Delts.”
Delta Skymiles might be near worthless for redemptions but one thing Delta Airlines has always had going for it is that they treat their elites pretty well for domestic travel. Well earlier this week that changed, they’re going to be ending complimentary first class upgrades in order to upsell from coach. 🙁
