If you’re in the business of manufactured spending then tomorrow you’ll be filing for unemployment as multiple sources have confirmed that the RedBird has begun its decent into the annuls of MS spend history. We knew it would come to an end eventually but tomorrow? That’s too soon. Oh how the good die young.
Anyhow, let me inject some comedy about this otherwise sorrowful day. A friend of mine shared with me the following conversation regarding his preemptive call with Citi before the final reload.
Isaac: I’m calling to let you know that I will be making a big purchase at Target this evening. It is a legitimate purchase.
Citi Rep: They must be running a promotion tonight, everyone is calling with a Target purchase. I’ve had about 9 so far.
I don’t think anyone is to blame for this deal dying. Even the notorious bloggers who love to model Birdman cards with their significant others didn’t have the time to write 100 posts on the subject. We all hit it hard and we all hit it quit because we knew it was too good to last.
RIP RedBird. You will be missed.
Onto the next one.
