SWEET! CITI REWARDS+ 10% REBATE WORKS WITH OTHER THANKYOU CARDS FOR UP TO 10,000 POINTS BACK PER YEAR – Out & Out

I had said that I didn’t get the excitement around this card in the past.  But know that the rebate works on all cards changes my mind on that now.  I still wouldn’t apply for or use the card much but I would downgrade or product change into it.  It is basically $125 a year in easy money if you use ThankYou points at all.

  1. that seattle times article…just wow.

    “Assessed a failure of the system as one level below “catastrophic.” But even that “hazardous” danger level should have precluded activation of the system based on input from a single sensor — and yet that’s how it was designed.”

    I watch a lot of Air Crash Disasters and this is like aircraft design 101. There have literally been multiple episodes that discuss this sort issue, I’m shocked that professional engineers with decades of experience could design their systems to be so reliant on a single sensor.
