    A guy in LA is peddeling Review cards to prolific travelers and bloggers who regularly write reviews. For $100 (if you pass his screening) you get a card to flash in restaurants and hotels so they have a opportunity to provide you the best possible service. Sounds a bit weird to me. But he's probably going to make a killing....

    I wonder what is he gonna do to promote this "card" in hotels in restaurants? Send them emails saying that these card holders are the top "reviewers" because they were screened by him?

    So you think I should NOT sell my new line of clothing that prominently features "Yelp Master Reviewer" and "Tripadvisor Top Critic" patches?

    Nah, and I'll be hanging on to my Yelp Elite bottle opener.
