Sorry No photos of the food selection. Not much out early this early as the lounge opens at 5:30am. Some cold cuts, cheese, crousants, etc. I’ve never seen it this empty so it was pleasant for a 3 hour layover after coming off a redeye from TLV. img_20190805_053954img_20190805_053140

Hacking Citibank EMV chip card in France videos

So I’m online today confirming my new Citi Costco card and decided that I have no life and clicked on the EMV chip card videos.  The first one on train travel in France cracked me up. I was expecting (or maybe not expecting) them to show me some work around for the train kiosks since Citi fails to let you use Chip & Pin. Check it out. Pay close attention to how they give you the Hack to be able to buy train tickets, it’s awesome.

There are also 3 other videos that will teach you some other good travel hacks using your Citi card in France.

Oh and my review of the new Costco Citi card that kicks in on 6-20-16. It’s awesome except it charges foreign service fees of 3% 😦

Of course the smart folks in the videos won’t fall for the Dynamic Currency Conversion I’m sure….

 

 

 

Enter to Win a Trip to France in Premium Economy

Here is an offer where you can enter to win a trip to France. Many trip contest like this are for Economy seats which is OK but it’s MUCH nicer if you can at least move up to Premium Economy which is contest features. This also features travel on Airfrance which has a very nice Premium Economy seat like USA Domestic First Class and MUCH better than US carriers so called Premium Economy seats.

Here is a comparison between typical AirFrance Premium Economy and a random US carrier Premium Economy seat.
