Recap: Chase Checking Match, $20 Off First Pay By The Minute Hotels & More
- Success: Chase is Matching the $500 Business Checking Bonus but There’s a Catch! (Also How to Get Your $500 Bonus) by Miles to Memories. We’ve had success with matching before, but good to know they will match this specific offer.
- $20 Off Your First Recharge Hotel Stay Booking (Think: Hyatt Regency San Francisco) by Magic of Miles. This app lets you book rooms by the minute, novel concept but at $40 per hour this is a pass for me. Hotels are really wanting to monetize more of their rooms, more often. That’s why we are seeing apps like this and also apps for day rooms. I think the day room approach has a better chance of succeeding, but we’ll see.
- Introducing the MPD Gift Card tab and other misc news by Miles Per Day. There is a lot of synergy between resellers and people purchasing gift cards at a discount for resell, but I think the aspect of fraud makes this too difficult to actually work as it scales (that’s why all the gift card exchanges are so terrible for the most part). I have a neat idea for an app, so maybe I’ll try and get that developed.
- Uber Offers 50% Off Rides for Copa America Soccer Matches Across US Point Me To The Plane. Nice discount if you’re going to any of these matches.
- The Supreme Court’s 10th Justice Can’t Handle His Credit Cards by View From The Wing. Make sure you can properly handle your credit cards before getting into this hobby, it’s very easy to get sucked into a black hole of credit card debt.
