PerkStreet is dead. Get a credit card instead!
Well, I would like to say I’m surprised, but I’m not. PerkStreet is dead. I was never a huge fan of PerkStreet rewards, even when they first launched. I wrote 3 reviews back in June and July of 2010 when they launched with much fanfare (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). These were some of my most commented upon posts and even drew in some PerkStreet employees to the conversation. I certainly loved the traffic! I wasn’t sold on the concept from the beginning and as time went by the rewards program eroded more and more to the point now where your rewards are dead, just like PerkStreet itself.
If you are a former PerkStreet perker still looking for rewards I would recommend checking out my post on the best rewards credit cards to use in Q3 2013. If you spend wisely, there is no reason that someone who uses a debit card cannot transition to a responsible credit card user. And, the rewards are even better!
