This is a roundup of news and other interesting pieces that I’ve come across over the last few days. Read about new limits for Stop&Shop/Giant fuel deals, paying to skip the line at Disney, first look at the brand-new Capital One Lounge at DFW, X1 Card to start rolling out this week, and ex-Alitalia flight attendants strip off uniforms in protest.
Stop&Shop/Giant Adds New $2,000 Limit To Fuel Points Deals
This could vary by location, but they’ve now changed this from one transaction per member to $2,000 per member. This is not being enforced for now at Stop&Shop locations around me, so test out your locations to see if it affects you.
You Can Now Pay To Skip The Line At Disney World
Over the summer, Disney announced that they would be rolling out a new “pay to ride” service at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World where you could pay a one-time fee or pay a smaller series of fees to skip the stand-by line on certain rides. Now that service rolled out in Walt Disney World and not surprisingly, not everyone loves it.
First look at the brand-new Capital One Lounge at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport
The McLean, Virginia-based issuer is in the midst of a years-long push further into the travel space. Its mileage program has transitioned from a mostly cash-back operation to a full-fledged travel rewards currency with airline and hotel transfer partners. The company invested in the travel technology firm Hopper and used it to power the relaunch of the Capital One Travel portal earlier this year, too. Marking yet another milestone, the company is opening its first-ever airport lounge at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Check out videos and images.
The X1 Card to Start Rolling Out this Week
The X1 Card will begin rolling out cards to its waiting list this week, after testing the card in beta for the last six months. The card itself is made of stainless steel, but it’s meant to be used digitally, like the Apple Card. It has a sleek app that gives users the ability to create disposable “virtual” cards, cancel subscriptions with one click, and make anonymous transactions without giving out a real name or card number. You can read more about the card here.
Ex-Alitalia flight attendants strip off uniforms in protest
Dozens of former flight attendants from defunct Italian airline Alitalia stripped off their uniforms Wednesday, wearing only undergarments in a silent, choreographed protest in central Rome.
“Taking the uniform away from us means taking everything away.”
