You always have to look on the bright side. Out of all the forums DDF should have the shortest thread on this.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

Why?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Why?
DDF is an infant in this game. Hope no one takes that in a negative way.

my card was blue cash and switched it to blue(plain). yesterday my account was locked because they wanted i should update my income info. i never had that before.   and today it was ok.  looks like they are going thru some bad accounts.

He's not talking about that.

He's talking about accrued, but not redeemed.

Not earned, but pending.

 I know. Just pointing it out to those that didn't read my OP.
Live forever or die trying.

Why are they closing accounts?
Why not just change the program terms to make it less profitable?
Or discontinue the card and convert all existing cards to a different card.

So, let me get this straight.

They should gut the entire program because of people who exploited it, thereby throwing the baby out with the bathwater and robbing people of 5% on GGD, instead of just axing those exploiters?

Maybe just put a limit on the 5% rewards like they do with BCP or the Everyday Card.

Or they can just stop giving CB for GCs which is what their T&Cs say anyway. Wouldn't that just solve all their woes?

I'm not saying that I want them to do it but not sure why they didn't.

+1

The only way to change the terms without throwing out the baby would be to exclude gift cards from the extra cash back - signs have been that they're closer to that but I don't think they are fully there yet/or maybe there are other considerations I'm not thinking about.
