The Hidden Banking System: How Netflix Can Keep Charging Your Expired Credit Card [Roundup]


The Hidden Banking System: How Netflix Can Keep Charging Your Expired Credit Card [Roundup]


News and notes from around the interweb:

  • “Canceling or switching credit cards doesn’t stop recurring charges, thanks to a hidden banking system that tracks your financial life”

    Millions of Americans pay for Netflix, doling out anywhere from $6.99 to $22.99 a month. It’s a common belief that you can get out of recurring charges like this by canceling your credit card. Netflix won’t be able to find you, and your account will just go away, right? You wouldn’t be crazy for believing it, but it’s a myth that canceling a credit card will stop your recurring charges.

    …When you switch cards, Netflix doesn’t just stop your service — they just start charging your new card. There’s a largely hidden service that enables Netflix and most other subscription services to keep throwing charges at you indefinitely.

  • Sheikh United al-Airlines.

  • BLADE has launched a luxury bus to the Hamptons (NYT) which is a little bit weird because their helicopter business is all about avoiding the Long Island Expressway not sitting in traffic.
  • 19 CRJ-700s expiring from the American Airlines contract will see SkyWest removing seats, changing the plane to CRJ-550s which will likely go to Delta where they’ll operate Essential Air Service subsidized routes. One fewer flight attendant on routes without many passengers.
  • Delta Air Lines bans passengers from taking bananas out of its clubs but walking out with $30 in cheese is fine.

    They had an absolutely fantastic cheese. I asked the guy what it was, he said he wasn’t sure but he tried to find out. So he went back to the kitchen.

    One of the other staff overheard me going on about how good it was. He looked at me and smiled and said you know just take a Starbucks cup and fill it up and take as much home as you want. my jaw dropped, it was clearly a really expensive cheese. And of course, I took him up on it.

    As I was walking out of the club, the chef came out, carrying the discarded cellophane. It was an extra old mimolette. I probably walked out of there with $20-$30 of cheese.

  • While we’re at it, a pet peeve of mine is bulk toiletry bottles in the shower that say what they are in small, light print. I’ve taken my glasses off by the time I get in the shower. It would be nice not to have to get back out of the shower, put them on in order to read what’s what (and remember!), before returning to my shower.
