    Another look at the Freddies!!!

     

    Well, after an eventful evening of awards and fun at the Renaissance Newark, the results of the Freddies Awards were announced. There were a few guaranteed winners, a few surprise upsets, some surprising omissions (Hyatt Gold Passport!) and a lot of miles-related jokes courtesy of celebrity host, Robert Wuhl. Here’s how it came out.

      While it may be nice to see one's preferred program(s) included, the Freddies are--to me, at least--pretty useless as a valid guide to the quality of any given travel vendor. Considering the voting methodology, it's more of a marketing tool for the "winner" than anything else, certainly nothing I use to base any travel decisions on.  I see it this way: If my program(s) win, then I'm getting less in benefits for that year because of the extra money thrown at self-promotion instead of making my next stay/flight more pleasant.

        interesting perspective.  Kind of like the Miss Universe contest that went belly-up until Mr Trump pumped it up with his $$$$.  Now, most people consider it a joke of a pageant.
