Not really playing much of a game, but forgot to take my EZ-Pass along with me in a rented car. Expecting a bill with service charges on NYS cashless tolls from Enterprise.
Took my I-pass with me in the rental car, and still got a couple charges from Hertz.

Don't understand the story exactly. But you may be able to get them to give you back the 50%. Are the 2 plats under the same mr account?

No. Booked with DW's plat thinking it had until the end of December, but it really ended in mid December. My plat on the other hand has a few more months.

You sure that doesn't count for 2017? Aren't there mixed DP's?

OfficeMax cashier told me last week that GC sales don't count towards the store revenues for bonus calculation and that they make no profit on the sales.

Perhaps a case of dnropr, but doesn't sound unreasonable to me.
Yet they still pay out up to $16 a year in rewards. https://www.officedepot.com/a/content/loyalty/rewardsfaq/?cm_sp=my-rewards-_-rewards-page-_-faq&cm_sp=marketing-_-faqs__my-rewards-faqs-_-#faq5

Did the same thing. Used the online chat to talk to them and told them it was made on the 31st they said it would be counted towards 2017 and not 2018

Linked my CC to BP Gas rewards, and ended up paying with miles for my gas!

The prompts on the tiny screen at the gas pumps are very unintelligible.

BEWARE!!

Paid my Discover early up until $1.99, then a $50 referral bonus posted.
Could have been worse.
