Posts That Caught My Eye
Citi has been shutting down the accounts of some
heavy hitters customers. I wouldn’t worry if you are only moderately playing the game, but it is something to keep in mind. People who have been shut down will notice their “available credit” suddenly becomes $0. The story above pretty much involves doing everything that a company wouldn’t like.
It is a fine line we walk as bloggers in deciding what to write about and what to publicize. As is mentioned in the post, I actually wrote about credit card funding of Citi accounts, but kept the spotlight off of it. (As did others.) The point is, no matter what we do, someone will be mad. Life isn’t all unicorns, rainbows and butterflies unfortunately. Decisions have to be made and I am happy when people make them thoughtfully. That is all we can ask and that is what is described in this post.
Changing the names two letters at a time over four calls. Brilliant!
- There have been some deals for Barron’s and Wall Street Journal running around. Will Run for Miles talks about earning free Barclay Arrival points and Doctor of Credit has the run down on other options. I know some of the portal options on this deal are dying. Remember you have to cancel your subscription before the end of the trial or you will be charged. I have stopped doing as many of these deals since they tend to complicate my life, but I know some of you will like it.
- There is a new 87.5K deal on the Marriott Rewards Premier Visa. I covered it in a Quick Deal on Frequent Miler. It is a good bonus and something to consider given today’s news.
- Groupon is offering 20% off with the code GIFT20. Expires tonight. Use a portal.
