My mini August 2019 App-o-rama – Miles per Day

A lot of apps just for the referral bonus shows the sad state of affairs in this game.  I know Vinh has some big time spending plans for those cards but it still makes me cringe a little.  I think the Ebates card is something I need to look more closely at when I am done with my current min spend.

It looks like a pretty cool experience.  It would be on my list to check out for sure.

I feel sorry for anyone who spends enough time and money at Marriott to get this.
