I’ve made a bit of a game out of trying to predict Ultimate Rewards Mall changes. For examples see here and here. Well, there is some reason to believe we’ll see some changes in the mall tomorrow. For evidence, see the screen capture below showing multiple offers that supposedly expire today:
I said “supposedly expire” because it has happened in the past that expired promotions have continued on at the same rate, but we’ll see. Anyway, below are my predictions. We’ll score it like this: I get half a point for being directionally correct (e.g. the extra points go “down”, “up”, or “stay the same”) and another half point for exactly guessing the new point awards. Here goes:
Frequent Miler’s Predictions
- OfficeMax will go down to 3X (from 4X)
- Staples will stay at 4X
- Sears will go up to 5X (from 4X)
- Kmart will go up to 5X (from 4X)
- Lands’ End will go down to 4X (from 5X)
- Barnes & Noble will stay at 10X
- The Body Shop will stay at 5X
- Target.com will stay at 3X
- Drugstore.com will stay at 5X
Leap Year Mistake?
According to my calendar, tomorrow is February 29th. I’m betting that the “Feb 28th” expiration is a mistake and that the real changes will be made on March 1st. Someone forgot about leap year! If we don’t see any changes tomorrow, then we’ll keep my above predictions ready for March 1st.
