    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Get A Citi Rewards Card, Buy Women

Tyler Durden's picture




 

When spending rewards dollars on things like knife sets, LCD TVs and restaurant reservations is just a little too 2011, here comes Citi to spice things up a bit.

Consumerist tries to make some sense of Citi rewards' incentives... and fails:

Is there no limit to what banking rewards programs will cover these days? Flights, hotel rooms, rental cars, electronics, women. Wait -- what?

 

Consumerist reader F. is a member of Citi's Extra Cash rewards program and saw they could earn 100 points just for taking this survey. But when F. got to this question about "What products or services are you considering purchasing using your Extra Cash?", they noticed that apparently Extra Cash can be spent on adult human females.

 

We're sending this to Citi, because we're pretty sure this isn't what the survey was meant to say.

Maybe this is a special Citi card only designed exclusively for bankers, in which case it would make perfect sense of course. We would imagine however that only taxpayer bailout cash would be used for female purchases. Anything less would just be uncivilized.

And here we were thinking that HFT trading was cutthroat: it seems that when it comes to differentiating yourself in the saturated credit card rewards industry it is a truly no holds barred nuclear war. And no woman will be spared... Or overpriced.

Finally, we hear "Politicians" was just below the fold.

There is a difference between "bought" and "rented". But you're gonna pay, one way or the other.

Renting is a much better option.  I got my wife a Citi card years ago, only to find out my rewards points were always subject to blackout dates.

"Finally, we hear "Politicians" was just below the fold."

 

There's a category for those with extra Citi cash that's labeled 'Politicians/Whores.'

I guess if you pay them enough they'll get whatever narrowly focused, highly specific & incredibly destructive (to the nation) legislation you want passed enacted, and then the sluts of D.C. will give you a rim job, Dirty Sanchez, or even toss your salad.

It's not as if some Senators and House Members are even so bold and brazen as to have prostitutes make house calls to their official, taxpayer provided, government offices.  /s

It's a felcher Congress.

Thanks for the advice. I'm a renter but wasn't sure if I should keep renting or start looking around to buy. Guess I'll keep renting then. Renting makes me feel free. I can change my surroundings whenever I feel like it. Yaaaaaay renting.

Everyone around here talks about ASE's, Pandas, Maples... all that shit...

Wanna know something?... Stock up on JUNK (pre-64 Rosies, Mercury dimes, etc...)... Cause when TSHTF... That's what u may need to transact in these circles...

They will all have value. The junk may be good for small transactions but then again maybe not. How many of the dumbshits you see around have any idea what a real silver coin is, let alone worth?

I love the ping when one hits the table.  As a kid, I used to listen to the coin counter for the pitch of a silver coin.  Unmistakable.  

You can get bags of junk for cheap. They aren't pretty, but they are well known.  

Very good for transactions if things were to ever get bad.

That's total nonsense..  When TSHTF in any real way are you going to expect or "hope" that the local grocery store clerk is going to know the value of pre '64 coinage? Very few people do.. those that do know go to the net for current accepted average value based on condition..

What do you do when there is no normal internet to get value ?

 

Start saving regular change and convert as many FRNs to nickels.. It will weigh down your safe, and no one really wants that change yet anyway. When TSHTF! and no one can get FRN's from the bank your 'change' gets real, real valuable.

 

Keep the PMs and junk to yourself..  for the kids ;-)

Well if/when TSHTF, there are not going to be any grocery stores.  At least not any that actually sell things.  Maybe bum/zombie housing, but the JIT delivery system is NOT going to hold up?

You would be surprised at how easy it would be for people to determine a value for exchange, and I would bet on silver rather than slug coinage.

"...I would bet on silver rather than slug coinage. "

I would too..  But, now you and your counter party need to know how to test for purity..

Slug coinage at face value removes that barrier..

 

Frankly, without Ben's furious printing and bubbling up the ponzi we're all screwed.

Prepared or not.

I think that if we actually do start to get raw money printing that gets out into the economy that coinage, and to a lesser degree all currency will decouple from $$.

There is only so much cash, and even less coinage than digital dollars around, so decoupling is a distinct possibility.

Purity will not be challenged on junk silver for small purchases.  

Now, a larger gold bar for buying something big.  But junk silver will be fine.  

Of course, you might start to hear them being called "a real quarter."

Question: If TSHTF what big items are you going to trade gold bars for?  Who are all these suppliers that we are worrying about trading PM's with?  I guess maybe I am a bit confused but if the JIT delivery systems fail who is going to trade food for PM's and what other commodity besides shelter which no one is going to give away for any amount of junk or pretty silver coiniage will be more important?
