Chase Bank issues 3 varieties of Southwest-branded credit cards with 50,000 Rapid Rewards bonuses. Reports of a 70,000 point version are now making the rounds. The offer is targeted, but one person believes he has found a way to get the expanded bonus even though he was not targeted.
Be sure to read the reviews below the Airbnb listing, as several people found the accommodations to be very bad and left in the middle of the night. For example, one complained of a terrible odor, and another complained that the “wireless A/C” died after and hour and when they opened the window for ventilation mosquitoes entered. And, of course, there is no toilet in the taxi.
The write-up on the Airbnb site is worth reading:
This Taxi has been renovated into a swanky living quarters! It was in service since 2002 driving New Yorkers up and down the busy manhattan streets! From actors to real estate tycoons, the cab drove thousands of people around the bustling streets. Now for the first time its parked. Don’t worry the meter is not running. Sleep in this Cozy One-of-a-kind NYC Taxi Van.
