  • In the Travel News, Mark reports on the annual Freddie Awards, which were held in Seattle Thursday night.  Who were the hotels and airlines who won, and perhaps more telling, who lost.
  • Frequent Traveler University is being held in Seattle this weekend, which means nearly 400 miles and points geeks are gathered together to plot the overthrow of the travel establishment.  Or maybe just how to squeeze some extra miles or an upgrade out of your next trip.
  • Mark speaks to Ben Schlappig,who was an instructor at the event, about the future of frequent flyer programs; Summer Hull of MommyPoints.com about credit cards that help you travel, and to Randy Petersen, the founder of many Frequent Flyer web sites and programs, about how the FF community gives back.  Three terrific short interviews loaded with information.
