The Great Treasure Hunt

Thursday, October 05, 2006

I saw a great idea over on FlyerTalk in the AA forum. Somebody had extra drink coupons, so instead of throwing them away, they hid them in the back of the menu on a table in the bar. Other FT readers now know to check the menu for drink coupons.

Frankly, I've never had the problem of having drink coupons left over. And if I did, I don't think it would be that hard to find some members of our military around to take care of them for me. I've been leaving magazines and paperbacks in the seat back and on tables in airlines clubs for quite some time. I have no idea if someone else picks them up before a cleaning crew throws them away, but at least there's a chance they'll get reused.

So I've had an idea. Email me with the location of any "treasure" you find yourself leaving behind in an airport or a hotel. If I get enough items, I'll throw together an application and maintain a list. If you find something, you'll be able to go on line and report it. How cool would it be to find out there are drink coupons waiting for you in the Admirals Club at ORD when you go online and find out that your flight has been delayed by 2 hours?
