A couple of rewards credit card offers were recently tweaked, so I want to mention those details in case the sign-up bonus additions are of interest to your rewards loving family.

One Year of Amazon Prime Added to Some American Express Sign-up Bonuses:

These offers have expired. 

First, American Express has added one year of of Amazon Prime for new Amex EveryDay and Blue Cash Credit Card customers.   I personally live and breathe Amazon Prime, mostly because of the free two day Amazon shipping, but it also offers unlimited instant streaming of movies and TV shows, ad-free access to more than a million songs, and a Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.  The cost of Amazon Prime is normally $99 per year, unless you qualify for the student rate of $49 per year.

The Amex EveryDaySM Credit Card: Get one year of Amazon Prime plus 10,000 Membership Rewards points after you make $1,000 in purchases with your new card in the first three months

The Amex EveryDaySM Preferred Credit Card: Get one year of Amazon Prime plus 15,000 Membership Reward points after you make $1,000 in purchases with your new card in the first three months

Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express: Get one year of Amazon Prime plus $50 back after you make $1,000 in purchases with your new Card in the first three months.

Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express:  Get one year of Amazon Prime plus $100 back after you make $1,000 in purchases with your new Card in the first three months.

I don’t consider any of these sign-up bonus changes overly major, but the benefits added to all of the cards do retail for close to $100, so more is always better.

  1. If you had to choose between getting a United Mileage Plus Explorer card and the Citi® Platinum Select card, which would you choose?
    We want to go to Hawaii next year and then eventually to Europe the year after. What cards would you suggest?

    • Renee, while I personally prefer United miles, currently you will likely do better with the AA award chart. So, I would want both cards, but if I had to prioritize based on the goals, I’d currently go with AA assuming all things are equal.

  2. Thanks. We just started collecting miles, our 1st credit card was the chase sapphire preferred and we are working towards our bonus points which we will get within a month. Being our goal is Hawaii next year and Europe the year after would you suggest the Citi® Platinum Select card or a hotel card like Hilton or Marriott?
    Thanks for your help.

    • Get both on the same day. Since you r a newbie to this hobby, always try to apply for multiple cards on the same day to lessen the impact of “Too Many Inquiries”. Banks won’t see that u applied for multiple CCs’ done on the same day. Your approval rate will increase.

  3. Would it be worth to sign up for both the Citi AAdvantage and the US Airways Premier World Master Card?

    I applied for a United Card 3 months ago and am started to get hooked, already booked an economy trip to Europe next summer!

    It seems with the two cards I can get 93000 miles signup once the programs merge, if me and my wife apply each can we get to a business class trip to Asia on AA in 2016 or so after spending our way to the 110 K miles needed? Or would a different strategy be more advisable? With United it would be a lot more miles as far as I can tell. Thanks!
