I recently had a nice vacation in Tampa this past weekend. It was very nice - warm and sunny - compared to the cold and wet up here in the Northeast. I got to check out Clearwater Beach, downtown Tampa a little, and also the Florida Carriage Museum and Resort up in Weirsdale, FL.
Nice little trip. One odd thing I noticed when returning my rental car was that they charged me $3 to get Frequent Flyer rewards. I earned 200 miles on my 4 day rental. I don't earn that many rewards and probably will never accrue enough to be able to use it. If i had known, I wouldn't have entered my FF number and saved the $3 for an ice cream sundae.
Has anyone else been hit with this charge? That was the only "weird" charge I got that seemed stupid. The other ones are kinda stupid too $9.92 Florida Surcharge, $12.28 concession fee recovery, $1.03 energy surcharge (this one i can maybe understand). but the others are kinda silly to me as well.
Just saw this on CNN
