Acorns $100,000 Referral Pool

Acorns is offering to split $100,000 to people who refer 5 friends during March. The $100,000 is split evenly between everyone on Acorns that meets the referral quota. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. My guess is that the split amount will be less than $1,000/person. 

 Use our referral link to get started on Acorns. Thanks for supporting AskSebby! :)

Mercedes-Benz Amex Platinum Card will be discontinued in Jan 2019

Mercedes-Benz and American Express are ending their partnership in Jan 2019. This means the Mercedes-Benz credit card and charge card are going to disappear. 

If you haven't signed up for the regular American Express Platinum card yet, get it before the Mercedes-Benz version. The Mercedes-Benz Amex Platinum card will most likely be converted to a regular Platinum card when the partnership ends, which will disqualify you from receiving the signup bonus in the future.
