    Just saw a Lifehacker article about getting 'free cash back' that referenced a USNews article on a popular Vanilla topic.

    It's like the Mint all over again. Any takers on a death poll for this one? 'Dead' in my book means an official no credit card policy from all retailers, BB not accepting reloads, verified extinction of said reloads...I'm sure there are more ways to go in this case.

    Gotta love the comments on the LifeHacker story from all the people who are upset that articles like that are likely going to cause the loopholes to be closed. As if they didn't discover it through some post somewhere.

    Since Lifehacker talked about the mint YEARS before it got shut down I have no idea how long it will last ...
