    Just got an email from Square where they're offering new users up to $1k in no-fee transactions. This also includes a personalized referral link which I'm including below...

    If you don't have Square, it could be an easy way to score a few free miles with a credit card purchase. Not much, but it's better than nothing :)

    I'm not familiar with Square, but looks like it's a free attachment to a mobile device that let's you accept a credit card. Right?

    Correct. You plug in the dongle to your headphone jack and install the app, and sign up for an account. They allow you to accept debit / credit for a fee, with a higher fee for manually entered transactions (in case you forgot the reader or want to take cards over the phone).

    The only catch is the transaction fee (which is high but competitive) that makes it unreasonably high for pure manufactured spending. And they have a delay on deposits, usually of 24 hours on the weekdays and longer for transactions on Fridays and weekends. It's all on their website.
