Thumbs down Northwest Partner Gift Certificates.com drops to a 2 miles per dollar

Greetings all,

Let the regular NW Mall shopper/buyer beware..........
Just a heads up that the Northwest shopping mall has dropped the mileage as of today effective June 9th
Earnings on Gift Certificates .com will now only be 2 miles per dollar.
I logged in and didn't pay any attention.
It was done without any notice to my understanding.

In my case this means curtains for my year round partcipation using their shopping site as Gift Certificates.com
was the most important partner I did business with.I'm sure for some others the change will probably not be a big concern.

Combined with the fact that Northwest has always been one of the more challenging airlines to redeem on
without using rule buster I will simply earn the 2 miles elsewhere.
And most of my other other partner activity.
Perhaps had it been a less important partner my decision would be different.
At least I go out with a Fly Free Faster bonus to cushion the fall

Cheers

We are going to need a spreadsheet to track the cost cuts (straws).

Bummer that its down to two miles/$ bonus. I am a regualr customer of the mall and Gift Certs is a favorite. I wish Blue Nile would come back to the Mall. (so would the Mrs.)

I think it was 3 and they sometimes ran double promos for up to 6. Two miles per dollar is still better than not getting anything for it. I think DL and CO were already at 2 per $.

The fact that Amazon is no longer a GiftCertificates.com supplier really was a low blow, which makes this devaluation not so bad, but still....

Well, this spreadsheet isn't any good for tracking the cost cuts, but if you want to figure out what kind of mileage you can get for your purchases, check out Andrew Cram's website:
