I’ve said it many times before – I “wear the points” in my family. What I mean by that is I take much joy in managing Mr. Points Traveler and my own loyalty account balances. I will soon have to add a 3rd collection of loyalty programs to the roster now that Baby Points Traveler has joined the team.
A few weeks ago, there was an “incident” in my household, and now that the dust has settled, I can actually laugh about it. Long story short, let’s just say that Uber threw Mr. Points Traveler under the bus.
About a month ago, Mr. Points Traveler told me he was having a guys’ night out after work. Since I already had plans myself, I thought it was perfectly acceptable for him to also have a late night out. Thankfully, he was responsible and took Uber instead of driving home after a night of drinking.
Fast forward a few weeks later when Uber had a Superbowl promotion whereby you can win $25 in credit, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to load both of our accounts with the free credits.
However, when I logged on to MPT’s account, I was asked to “rate my last Uber ride”. There was also a map “reminding” me of the route of my last trip.
Tsk tsk, thanks to Uber, I learned that his guys’ night out ended at a nearby strip club, and in the end, he fessed up. I guess he thought the good old-fashioned, “what she doesn’t know, can’t hurt her” rule would apply here…
Newsflash: women find out everything – and I have my points and miles programs to back me up. ;)
In all seriousness, he’s damn lucky to have such a cool wife.
Have you ever been busted in a similar way? Would love to hear your stories!
