British Airways New Minimum Long Haul Check In Time...

If you like cutting your check in fine, haven't checked in online and have bags to check, here's a very handy heads up. British Airways will increase the minimum check in time from 45 mins to 1 hour starting October 30th. That means if you approach the counter and say hello at minute 59, you're **** out of luck. Check in early, enjoy lounge access, even if flying economy and carry on. 

RocketMiles 3,000 Bonus Airline Miles For First Hotel Booking!...

RocketMiles is offering an enticing bonus for your first hotel booking. You'll get a minimum of 3,000 miles, plus any miles for your actual hotel stay, so expect at least 4,000 miles for a one night stay. Be sure to comparison shop rates, to make sure you're not getting gouged on price, but if it's palatable, and cheaper than buying 4,000 miles from the airline of your choice, it can be an excellent deal. 3x the standard bonus, for those keeping score. You need to book TODAY, but travel can be far into the future...
