Last week, I asked Portal Alert subscribers if they would prefer to see only portal increases, not decreases, in the daily Portal Alert. The responses were mixed. A lot of people agreed with me that showing only increases would be better, but a large percentage of responders wanted to keep best rate decreases. So, thanks to help from reader suggestions and technical work by Cash Back Monitor, we found a way to accommodate everyone. We’ve separated portal increases and decreases. Portal increased best rates are shown first. Decreased best rates are shown below. In that way, those who are only interested in the increases can stop reading when they get past that section. Thanks everyone for your input!
Another enhancement, in progress: Cash Back Monitor added a new column to the Portal Alerts tables: Best Rate History. Currently, the column contains a link to the Best Rate History page for that merchant. Longer term, we hope to put in a number, along with the link, to directly display the best previously seen rate.
Here’s an example of what you’ll see today (click to view the actual Portal Alert):
