For anything you can spend money on, there's some program to reward you for your frivolity -- but managing them is more than a man chasing a free Jamba Juice can muster. Get your bonus ducks in a row, with LeverageCard, launching today.
Started in Irvine, LC's a virtual cheapskate accountant: a gratis service that databases any reward program or gift card that can be electronically verified -- anything from frequent flyer miles to Barnes & Noble credit (but not your Subway punch card; that free Italian BMT's your mountain to climb). Just enter your tracking/account numbers, and LC'll consolidate the relevant data onto a dashboard providing real-time updates, alerting you to the exact moment you can stay-without-paying in Vegas, or see August Rush for nothing. As a bonus, you can trade gift cards with other users; register a gift card, and you'll also accrue a modest annual interest (1-3.65%) -- because there's no more beautiful feeling than knowing that $100 from Payless Shoe Source will soon be $103.65 (40 pairs of shoes!).
