Nice post! Thanks for the heads up!

 

I must ask, do you really have William Shatner on your Priceline card? I feel like that would make me laugh every time I used the card. Smiley Tongue


Yes, I actually have William Shattner on my card. I usually don't carry the card, since it is usually for utility payments, etc. But I used it when I had to pay for a new set of glasses, and the optician went ga-ga when he saw the card. Claimed "a friend" of his is really into Star Trek, and that he would have to mention the card to "him"...

 

Its a pretty kool design, the background has those beams/rays spreading outward, and alternate rays are reflective blue versis non-reflective blue. So it definitely makes an impression.


now I kinda want that card just for Willam Shatner picture on it, and the new ones don't have his picture Smiley Sad


Oh? When I got mine, there was a choice between Shatner and no Shatner.

How are you guys chosen for these bonus point opportunities? Based on your spending? Are you contacted via e-mail or regular mail?

I wish I would get selected for some special bonus points offer. Maybe in a few months!


I like to think of it as Karma, since my putting the Sallie Mae on one of my early charts showed to everyone, myself included, just how good that card was. Probably generated some Business for Barclays and Sallie Mae.

 

Yep, so the way to do it is to make a lot of high quality, informational posts on Myfico. Let the new stampede begin!

I checked out priceline.com and they don't advertise the card with william shatner on it, so I assumed.
