Deliberate Quarantine Rewards?

This post contains one affiliate link. Please help support this blog.

It's been a rough year for all of us. Essential employees and otherwise.

I'm a T-Mobile customer, and so I participate in their Tuesday Rewards program. For a couple of years now, I've been enjoying the nearly-weekly gas coupons (and filling up on a weekly basis too), and hardly touching any of the other offers, but this year, some of the other rewards have been a little curious.

First, it was Amazon Prime Music, then YouTube Premium, and now the latest Tidal Premium (which I confess I hadn't heard of before it showed up in my offers list).

Either T-Mobile is getting better offers from more companies... or this is deliberate. Each has been a two- or three-month freebie, each showing up just as the last one expires. (There was also a Pandora Premium trial last year, but it ended before this mess and before the Amazon offer showed up, so I'm not counting it.)

It just feels... too deliberate to be accidental. I can't help but wonder.

If you'd like to save money on gas when you purchase it at participating Shell stations, use this Affiliate Link to join Fuel Rewards and save. This is not a "cash-back" or "rebate" offer. Save at the pump, when you pay.
