Starbucks Rewards Gold Members: Reload $10+ with Chase Pay & Get 250 Bonus Stars

Update: I spoke with a Chase representative today and you will not be able to sign up for Chase Pay if your online login/profile has any business credit cards attached to it. Verbiage from Chase Pay FAQ: At this time, Chase Pay doesn’t accept business credit cards, business debit cards or MasterCard® cards. I was lucky enough to have a separate personal login without business accounts attached, and it went through smoothly.

Good evening everybody, or morning if you are reading this tomorrow. I was going through my Starbucks app Inbox and found the following promotion for Chase Pay members (not to be confused with Chase QuickPay).

Receive 250 Bonus Stars when you load $10 or more in the Starbucks® app using Chase Pay. For all of us Starbucks Rewards Gold members, gold members have earned over 300 stars, that means two free drinks! You, of course, need to have the Starbucks App installed on your phone, at least one personal Chase credit or debit card, and have a Chase login for online access. 

Follow the following directions for your particular device and you should be good to go (see specific terms below).

JetBlue TrueBlue Points Post Almost Instantly for Lyft Airport Rides

Good afternoon everyone.  I am channeling my inner Lucky and Ben to post twice in the same day.  I’m exhausted, I don’t think I can keep up with them for much longer.  Anyway, last week, Lyft and JetBlue announced a partnership where you could take Lyft to/from the airport and earn 30 JetBlue TrueBlue points per trip.  Before I go any further, I am required by the blogger code of conduct to insert my Lyft referral link (get $50 in Lyft ride credit).

During my recent weekend trip to Washington, D.C., I flew to IAD and took a Lyft Line to the Marriott Marquis Hotel.  Since the ride was super early, I got the whole Lyft Line to myself.  I got dropped off at the hotel at 6:29am and received an Award Wallet alert that I received 30 JetBlue TrueBlue points at 7:15am (which was 14 minutes faster than the Lyft app).  30 JetBlue TrueBlue points is worth ~60 cents, so the points don’t even offset my tip.

6 Free Things to See in London (After you Buy an Underground Day Pass)

Good evening everyone, hello from the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome Hotel Indigo Paris (almost as nice).  Since I am already in Paris, I have to get this post published of free things to see in London before all the memories disappear from my mind.  I purchased a 1 day London Underground pass for 12 Pounds and you can basically go anywhere around London.  Here are some pics that I took, in chronological order.  Most of these places have a free aspect along with a paid aspect, without further ado…

Emirates Stadium – Home of the Arsenal Football Club

The stadium is beautiful, but you would be surprised to know that there are several small houses all around the stadium.  Quite the dichotomy when you first walk out of the Underground station.
