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.

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.
