Goofyhoofy: Of course it is. There probably aren't two people on an airplane who paid the same price to get from Point A to Point B. And do you really think you paid the same price for the same car as the last person in the car dealership?

and...

OK, but by accepting Disney's "rewards" program you show the lie in your reasoning.


The difference is that everyone is eligible for the same rewards. But Motley is limiting who they give the freebies away to.

Airlines have come under great scrutiny and criticism in the media for their price practices. Because they do it, doesn't make it right.

And under most circumstances, everyone is able to try to find the same discounts, themselves.

Regarding cars: The sticker price is the same for every person. And every person has equal opportunity to try to get their best deal.

A Disney rewards program would be a program that is equal to everyone. Every person alive has opportunity to get the same rewards.

That simply isn't the case with Motley's methods of giving out free accounts.
