Capital One’s current partnership with Resy might possibly end soon.

I actually use Resy quite a bit, it’s super convenient and a load of local places use it. I’ll be interesting to see what Amex has planned for it.

I have used it because a lot of places have dumped open table and moved to Resy.

Cant think of a time when one a large bank bought one of these tech startups that actually turned out to be anything meaningful in the end. Just $ to waste while they try to act like they are cool and hip.

The only reason I had heard of Resy was through the Radisson app. If you accessed Resy through the app, you got 200 bonus points for every seated reservation. After seeing this news today, I checked, and it is no longer an option on the Radisson app. I know it was there recently. Cannot say for sure it is related, but it is an interesting coincidence.

Radisson has dumped everything on my app, most recently eBay and Delivery.com – nothing populates in the ‘Extras’ tab now.

Do you have to pay with your Amex card, or just add it to your Resy wallet as an option

For folks in Hawaii, don’t bother. Only 4 restaurants on the app, and they’re not THAT good.
