Bye Bye Birdie

Well... it was only a matter of time.

Yes folks, it looks like it's time for another points / miles-earning scheme to come to a close. Lifehacker (and by extension US News) has just shared how to "Get Cash Back (or Rewards) for Free by Buying Vanilla Reload Cards". It's now only a matter of time before a major mainstream media outlet picks it up (think WSJ or NYTimes), and then it's only a matter of time until the "loophole" gets shutdown, just like the now-infamous US Mint deal did.

I actually haven't been playing the Vanilla Reload - Bluebird game (for reasons I'll outline in a future post), but if you do, you may want to get to your nearest source of "ice cream" and stock up!

Bluebird we hardly knew ye
