Some tourists are finding ways to avoid those pesky COVID restrictions — by purchasing fake coronavirus test results.

Plus, Italy has a “scandalous beach” to which Benito Mussolini’s daughter was exiled — and where she enjoyed a torrid affair with a local, communist fighter.

We’ll get to those headlines and many more in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this past week at Rene’s Points!

Hold on to your hats: The Platinum Card from American Express has a new welcome offer that can score newly approved members an astounding 230,000 Membership Rewards.

Speaking of which, something’s missing on affiliate and official Amex pages touting The Platinum Card’s big, new offer: the annual $200 airline incidental credit benefit. So where did it go?

Attention Amazon and other retail shoppers: there’s a big sale in the American Express Blue Cash Everyday aisle.

Uber is rolling pre-order rides — and will let you select your favorite drivers. But how does the system really work?

Chase dropped increased welcome offers for their two no annual fee Ink products.

If you desperately miss cruising and want to help out the aquatic hospitality industry, you may be in luck.

René wrapped up his series detailing the “BRU Boys” mileage run.

René wondered a few weeks ago if Delta will sell MQM, MQD, and MQS so people can “Elevate (Their) Status.” We now have an answer.

Plenty of credit cards tout 0% APR promotional offers for new applicants. But just because you have a 0% APR doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay anything during the promotional period.

DO$H members: look for an email inviting you to take part in a fast survey that could win you $500.

A couple of posts dealt with one-day sales: Rakuten’s 11-11 promotion and these Sony waterproof Bluetooth speakers that were discounted by 50%.

  1. I’m very happy to see a black market for negative tests. I’ve gotten this request from people online for my (legit) negative tests.
    Never sold them, but, going forward, certainly something I would consider.

    The world’s governments earned themselves zero credibility in this mass hysteria. So, if you can pay $20 to get around it, why not?
