Fly to Iceland for $99 One Way (Hopefully), and a Starbucks Veterans Day Offer

Happy (early) Veterans Day!

In case I don’t have opportunity to post on Veterans Day itself, allow me a moment to express my appreciation to our service members.

I will never know first-hand what it is like to be a service member, but as the daughter of a vet (and friend and colleague of several other vets) I do have a glimpse into the sacrifice that service entails.

So to all who have served our country, please accept my gratitude.

WOW air commences service to North America

I have wanted to visit Iceland for a while, but for various reasons have not been proactive about making it happen. However, this might nudge it off the back burner…

WOW air, a self-described “cheeky Icelandic low-cost airline,” recently started flying to North America.

Although I was not quick enough to grab any, the airline advertised $99 one-way tickets between Boston and Reykjavik.

Currently the lowest-priced ticket I can find for that route is $146 one way. That’s still a deal as it normally runs about $600 round trip on other carriers, but I’ll for sure be keeping an eye out for the next $99 sale.

Of course, when you fly a low-cost airline you can expect an “un-bundled” experience, meaning just about everything but the seat costs extra. Indeed, the fee for a carry-on bag on WOW air is upwards of $29.

But remember: when other airlines say you get free bags, they’re not really free. They’re just included in the price of the ticket.

Starbucks Veterans Day promotion

To circle back to Veterans Day, I just wanted to let everyone know about Starbucks’ offer to service members and their spouses:
