For CSR/CSP cardholders: 1x bonus on use via digital wallets in October

An e-mail came out advertising a 1x bonus on card usage through digital wallets, up to $1,500. I got the e-mail for Apple Pay, but alas, I have an Android phone. Still works with Samsung Pay, and should work with all digital wallets.

Somewhat related news, since a number of people have mentioned Southwest rewards - SW finally flying to the most southern and western part of the US: Hawaii

Considering AK is an entire 2 time zones ahead of HI, no - HI is farther west.

ETA: Ok, fine - I'm sure there's people that live along the Aleutian Islands chain.

Yep. Alaska is the furthest North, furthest West, and depending on how you look at it, also the furthest East.

Only thing it is indisputably not is the furthest South.

Personally, I'm going to change the CSP to a Freedom Unlimited soon - the potential for referral credit isn't worth the $95/yr, not when I have the CSR. (To my knowledge, CSR doesn't have a referral benefit, but please someone correct me if I'm wrong)

Evidently I love being wrong.

1) The CSR does now have a referral benefit (see sig line).
2) I did indeed change my CSP to a Freedom Unlimited, and now I need a referral link for the CSP because free points for someone. (Sold someone on the CSP card, but don't actually know anyone with it. Wasn't able to upsell the CSR, though.)

Much appreciation in advance for a link

CSP link PM'd,

If I ever get below the 5/24 rule I'll come your way for your CSR referral link. FWIW, I'm currently LOL/24.
