This is a roundup of news and other interesting pieces that I’ve come across over the last few days. Read about Amex Platinum card fraud dispute issues, Safeway’s deceiving BOGO deals, NYC airports parking rates spike, new JetBlue livery and Moxy Tromsø in Northern Norway.
Zach disputed his card with American Express three different times, and each time AMEX said the bogus charge was legitimate and that Zach had to pay the $980. This was a fraudulent charge for a bogus car rental that never happened.
Caleb Haley bought a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream at Safeway in one of the grocery giant’s “Buy One, Get One Free” promotions, paying $7.49. The same tub cost $4 the day before the deal started and dropped back down to that price immediately after it ended.
Starting Thursday, motorists will have to pay significantly more for parking at LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark airports — up to $89 a day for those who don’t reserve a spot in advance.
Pre-booked parking rates reserved 24 hours in advance and the more expensive drive-up fares are both seeing cost increases. At Kennedy Airport, pre-booking rates will spike as much as 66% at the orange garage, from $36 to $60. At Terminal C at LaGuardia, the pre-booking rate will be $52 versus $89 for those who don’t reserve a spot.
JetBlue today announced its new standard livery featuring a bold and all-blue design emblematic of its role as an innovative, industry-disrupting brand that customers love and trust for travel. From colorful tailfin patterns to special liveries, JetBlue has always used custom designs to honor the people, places and partnerships that make up its DNA. The new “icon in the sky” gives JetBlue a standout visual design as it expands to new markets and brings customer-centric offerings across the travel industry.
Moxy Hotels, the playful experiential hotel brand part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 31 extraordinary brands, has opened Moxy Tromsø in Northern Norway. Operated by Core Hospitality A/S, the hotel marks the northernmost property in Marriott Bonvoy’s global portfolio. Tromsø is famed for its beautiful winter landscapes and mesmerizing Northern Light displays, with summer adventures benefiting from the midnight sun and 24-hour sunlight.
