I don't use AW, but I'm not at all surprised. If you click through from my site to Hilton I take a cut, too. Don't you??

I went and search the web site and found it under my profile. BUT, you have to be an AW Plus member, of which I no longer am, to stop them from putting cookies on your computer during auto login.

Many of them simply lift information that's been posted on FT. I agree they have killed the miles/points game.
The miles/points game has been more seriously compromised/injured/killed off by government allowances for customer-unfriendly mergers/acquisitions/acts by the companies owning/operating loyalty program than by the bloggers playing the miles/points game.

I do. I was just making the point that claiming you never fund a blogger is a trickier claim to make than you might think!

(By the way, my original comment was not aimed at you even though it was under yours. It was aimed at the person above who mentioned AW.)

Good thing I don't use AW. I tried it once. I don't trust a single source to have all my account info, just like I never use those cloud password or browser schemes. Keepass is good for me.

Will be more diligent about cleaning the browser cookies before applying for anything. Though I have used social media cookie blocker...not sure if that has helped block certain cookies. Probably not.
