Recap: Profits From Store Cards, Elite Leave, Peeing In A Cup & More
- Profits From Store-Branded Credit Cards Hide Depth of Retailers’ Troubles by New York Times. It’s amazing how much of the profit these cards are generating. I wish consumers would better educate themselves on how appalling these cards really are.
- Kansas City woman says she was forced to pee in a cup on United flight by Kansas City Star. A lot of unanswered questions here. Why did nobody else report seeing somebody pee into a cup? Does this person have a diagnosed medical condition? What should airlines do in this situation?
- Alaska Mileage Plan Introduces “Elite Leave” For New Parents by One Mile At A Time. I suspect that parental leave is good business and they also get some positive press out of it. Win/win.
- Reader No Home Just Roam was targeted for 1,000 Amtrak points for enrolling in promotional e-mails. They were opted out of all e-mail types but opted in for the two snail mail options so might be worth changing your preferences to see if you get a similar offer.
