Little tricks to get double points?
Like buying gift cards at the office store to get 5ppd?
Or do you mean something else?
Double dipping, e.g. calling to have a bonus pushed through manually hoping that it will come through automatically too.

In general just like everything people pick and choose what they think is right and what they think they are obligated to do. Not feeling obligated to go drive half hour to inform a store they didn't charge you is NOT the same as doing something you know isn't 100% kosher and doing it anyways IMHO.
 There are differences. And a lot of these examples might fall under is it ethical...and we don't want to go there. ;)

Personally I don't do that. If it happens by accident I won't let them know but I don't try to double dip. But that's just me. I know people do.

Everyone picks and chooses.

IIRC there is something in one of the threads about get matched for an offer and your points post and then when you meet the spend they post again. Something along those lines but since it is not my cup of tea I didn't follow it.

Yup. You could argue that's a bit of grey since in theory its not your job to keep track of what posts or not. I would have to assume most people wouldn't believe that's 100% kosher.

I see that but I don't get what is funny about what I said. Am I missing something?

I would say that most people have a certain 'disconnect' between points and 'real' money. Most people will view points as 'Monopoly money' that companies (airlines or CC companies) print at will. So while most here wouldn't take money dishonestly, they would have no problem taking points dishonestly.
(the above is not saying anything about the "Rightness" or "Wrongness" of that view, for that we have an ethics thread :P )

Why the new thread?
Love me or hate me. I still love you.
