Transferred money out of some shopping portals. No particular reason, other than I don't like to have large amounts built up on some of these apps, in case they go belly up.

In useless to the board news. Sept. 30th is the date the co-brand relationship between BofA and Amtrak comes to an end. No word yet on who Amtrak is negotiating with to offer the card moving forward.

How are you liking the Rakuten MR points situation? I look at it and I am tempted, but I just feel like the cash back is easier to manage. So do you get 2 MR points per dollar when they say it's 2% cash back? I can see that working out we'll because I do get good value from MR points. Or do they play with the ratio of MR points to cash back?

For me MR works out better than cash back. I can covert MR to Delta SkyPesos and other airlines. I can also convert the MR to Choice Privileges points. I can make MR points go further in my case.

 

With Rakuten you get 1 MR point for every penny $0.01. In other words $1.00 worth of earning converts to 100 MR points.

@TheVig:  Just curious, what do you value AA miles at that you find it the better redemption option for Shell Fuel Rewards?

 

I have a company car with a company issued fleet fuel card (WIX). 99% of my driving is in that car. Not too worried about saving them a few pennies on fill ups.

 

One nice thing, is I have that fleet card linked to my Upside app. That earns me real cash back on each fill -up, on top of the AA miles.

 

If I could use my Citi Premier instead, I'd be using that for the 3x.
