Evening Reading

By Brian Leahy, Jan 06, 2011 5:00pm PST Time to go record a new episode of Weekend Confirmed. How's everyone finding the Mac App Store so far? The offerings are pretty slight for the moment as far as major stand-out applications and games, but everyone should get the official Twitter client (Tweetie 2.0).

What gems have you found on there?

  • Hey, for those of you who use the American Express Gold Rewards card, what do you think of it?

    I'm not impressed so far. I moved from a 3% cash return on gas and groceries and up to 1.25% return on everything. I know the gold card gives varying rewards depending on what you spend it on, but 24k points seems to net me less than a $200 return. Obviously if you fly a lot you get more rewards, but I'll fly 5-7 times over a 3-month span in one year, then not fly for 6-8 months the rest of the year. Erratic.

    It also seems like a great deal of work to figure out how to make the most out of the card, applying your points to Amazon.com and other places. Any inspirational stories about rewards cards in this thread would be welcome.

    In the meantime I'm considering canceling my Amex Gold and going back to my USAA Amex.
