  1. Woah, two quarters in a row for 5% cash back at Amazon with Discover — nice. Good to know; now I won’t have to “prepay” my Amazon account so much with my Discover card as the end of this quarter approaches.

  2. Great new posts, but I’d recommend people not use Opinion Miles Plus. Type in “Opinion Miles Plus Scam” into google, and you’ll get the rundown. Basically, there’s a good chance that you’ll spend a couple of hours answering surveys and “not qualify”. In the past, I’ve done 5 surveys, and still have 0 points, including 0 signup bonus.

    If you get the signup bonus, enjoy the new points, and then leave the program alone 🙂
