During my presentation about ways to Earn Miles without Flying, I talked about making Plastiq payments and the value you can find in the Plastiq referral program. That prompted a good question from the audience: can you stack the referral promotion with the current Masterpass promotion? It was a great question that I said I would answer this week.
