MoviePass Removes Unused App Location from iOS with New Update – Engadget

Not surprising after MoviePass’ CEO openly admitted to tracking customers.  I guess the backlash was big enough to make them change their ways.  You can read my review of MoviePass and remember that their pricing has been reduced by 12% for a limited time.

The Opposite of Travel Hacking – Million Mile Guy

This story makes me sick to my stomach.  If you already have a card and features get added, like actually earning points, they should be updated and added to current cardholders as well.  This is why I don’t feel bad playing this game for miles and points or with bank bonuses.

US Bank Real-Time Rewards are Good, not Great – The Free-quent Flyer

US Bank recently made some changes to their award booking set up.  Most applauded US Bank’s changes as they should.  But it may have been a little over hyped.  The Free-quent Flyer brings up some good points on why the changes are just good, not great.

Miami’s Platinum House – Art Basel Miami – Double Duty Daddy

This is a few months old but still worth bringing up.  There are a lot of perks that come with the premium cards, American Express Platinum in particular, that a lot of people miss out on.  This just goes to show that the deeper you dig the more value you find.  Who wouldn’t want a complimentary night on the beach filled with drinking, dancing, and food?

Has Google has made it Harder to Find Cheap Hotels? – Skift

Interesting look at how companies display hotel search results.  And a reminder to always scroll down a little further because it seems the best prices get buried.  The almighty dollar does the talking here, like most places, and if you don’t pay to play you aren’t getting a seat at the table.
