Offers and updates found elsewhere on the interweb:
- Frequent Miler reports several successes this morning going through a shopping portal to buy e-gift cards, earning a rebate, and then going through the shopping portal and using those e-gift cards a second time to earn a second rebate — double the cash back for purchasing a single item.
- Just Another Points Traveler notes a survey offering 1000 Priority Club points.
- Wandering Aramean flags that Amtrak is offering double points on all train travel September 5 through November 16. Registration required.
- Loyalty Traveler relays Tripadvisor’s win in court, when it dubs a hotel as “the dirtiest” it is expressing an opinion (based on the compilation of opinions of its users) rather than making a claim of objective fact (which if false could be actionable). If I were a hotel owner, and my property were named the dirtiest, I would not sue and bring substantial additional media attention to the property’s designation. Just sayin’.
