Quick Thoughts

Again, not all of the retailers included are impressively high rates, and missing are some of the usual suspects like IHG, Dell, HP, etc. This time around, the increases look less useful to me than other times, but I suppose it all depends on where you’re shopping.

Those with the personal version of the Amex Platinum may be happy to see 10x at Sak’s, though based on the 15-month best rate history at CashBackMonitor, that doesn’t look all that exciting to me.

Overall, this promo looks like a miss to me unless you happen to be buying something anyway today.
