iDine and uPromise - credit card linkage

1. Anyone have any safety concerns about listing your credit cards on these sites?

2. Can you link the same credit card on both sites and double dip with rewards?

3. Does registering your rewards cards (like Zync, Chase Freedom, etc) conflict with the already established rewards on these cards?

 

 

Thanks,

 

 

Duncan

Re: iDine and uPromise - credit card linkage

I'm not concerned.  If the sites get hacked, you still have protection via the CC company that limits your liability.

 

I can't remember whether you can sign the same card up for both programs.  I have my CCs enrolled in dining mileage rewards programs, and I know I had them in uPromise a long time ago.  I'd have to log in to uPromise to see if they are still earning anything there (if I can remember my log-in information).

 

It doesn't conflict with your normal rewards offered on the card.  If I dine at a mileage rewards participating restaurant, I get the normal rewards through my card and I get bonus miles through the dining rewards program.

Re: iDine and uPromise - credit card linkage

Ill see if I can use them for both sites.  Ive used uPromise for a couple months with my AMEX prepaid card to test it out and didnt have a problem.  I'll see if I can link it with iDine (used prepaid card so not much of a security risk).

Re: iDine and uPromise - credit card linkage

idine was recomended to me via AMEX so they trust it, and I have earned money on it in a few short months.  The rewards dining program was recomended by BestBuy and HSBC at the time so there is another big bank pushing it, so can't be too bad. No issues so far.

Re: iDine and uPromise - credit card linkage

I joined them and also joined the Delta Skymiles version of it.  They all seem to be the same three programs with different rewards.  Im wondering if they will kick out my stuff when they notice Im triple dipping?

 

The Skymiles version had spend $25 and write a review online and get something like 1700 free miles.

When you register your card with a different program it moves the card to that program and you get an email telling you about the change. idine seems to have the best benefits,currently get 5, 10, or 15% plus an extra 5% untill the end of the year for each $100 spent.
