A new UPS smorgas-portal: Deal or no deal?

In a shipping notification email from UPS this week, I noticed a link advertising “hundreds of ticket deals & offers, updated daily”. Always a sucker for a deal, I clicked through and found that UPS has its own shopping portal of sorts, called UPS My Choice Deals. It’s actually part shopping portal, part OTA, part local deal site, part Entertainment book, part employee purchasing program….a smorgasboard of deal sites rolled into one. I’m not sure whether or…

You can now earn Marriott points for shopping online (but I probably won’t)

Marriott Rewards has announced Marriott Rewards MORE, which resembles a shopping portal, though it’s actually a browser toolbar, and for that reason I probably won’t be using it. There is an app, too — but there’s some bad news with that also. On the bright side, Marriott is offering 1,000 bonus points for signing up and using this new program to make a first purchase of $25 or more. More on what it is and where and how…
