Re: Glyph: iPhone app to find the best CC rewards

Thanks for joining the forum to answer questions, vichichm.

 

Is Glyph GPS-based like Wallaby?  Does it try to guess what merchant you're in based on location?

 

Does it account for quarterly bonus categories?  

 

If I'm working on an introductory bonus for a card like a Chase Ink, will it allow me to input that information so the Ink trumps other cards?

Hi djrez -

 

Thanks for your questions.  Let me take them one-by-one:

- GPS based?  Yes, we use the GPS on your iPhone to determine which merchants are nearby, and you can pick them from an easy to use list.  

- Yes, we definitely account for quarterly bonus categories.  We even account for merchant-level rewards, such as 5% at Starbucks on the Chase Freedom this quarter.

- We do not take introductory bonuses (e.g., x points when you spend y dollars) into consideration at this time.  Stay tuned in the future though; you'll see some awesome improvements in the next few weeks.  

 

You can download the app Edited  Please let me know if you have more questions or feedback!

 

Best,

Mike
