New Barclaycard Targeted Flights Cents Trial Program

I’m kind of crushing on the creativity of a new program being piloted by the AAdvantage Aviator Mastercard to targeted accounts. They are introducing a new Flight Cents pilot program beginning October 1st where, if you are targeted and opt in, you are essentially buying American Airlines miles with each purchase you make on the card that isn’t a round dollar amount at a rate that varies based on the offer your account was targeted for. Confused yet? Let me try to explain……

Best Offer: 60,000 American Miles Awarded With First Purchase

Way back in the rewards credit card dark times (you know, like four or five years ago), it was relatively common for most sign-up bonuses to be awarded upon the first use of your new credit card. This has slowly but surely changed as the minimum spending requirements to trigger sign-up bonuses have inched up from $1,000 to $2,000 and beyond. However, there are exceptions, and right now there is a card with not only an increased sign-up bonus, but…

Two Very Rare Airline Business Class Awards Available Today

As I shared a little while back, I have a travel goals 2020 list where I outline where we hope to go each year until 2020, but it’s just a list. God willing at least some of trips on the list will happen, but odds are some of it won’t happen, or at least it won’t happen when and where it is currently penciled in. However, part of the reason some of it might not happen is simply because an…

Fly from Just 3,000 Points Using Amex Transfer Bonus to British Airways

Periodic transfer bonuses are part of the stable of miles and points tools that my family uses to really stretch what we have for travel that we otherwise couldn’t afford. You can’t predict most transfer bonuses, but you can choose to utilize them when they become available. Along those lines, through September 17, 2017, there is a 40% transfer bonus from the Amex Membership Rewards program to British Airways Avios that increases the transfer ratio from a one to one ratio to 250…

Really Good European Flight Sale Today!

I think it is fair to say that some have become desensitized a bit to European airfare sales in the $400 – $500 per round trip range, but you really shouldn’t be. At least, I shouldn’t be. Being able to fly from somewhere like Houston to Scotland on a full service airline for around $500 per round trip is pretty outstanding, especially if you have a wide range of dates to pick from. Along those lines, right now you can book…

Using Reduced Mileage Awards to Fly for 15,750 American Miles!

A very valuable discount that is available to those who hold one of the American Airlines Citi or Barclaycard co-branded credit cards is a discount of up to 7,500 miles on flights to/from select cities each month via the Reduced Mileage Awards available exclusively to American Airlines card holders. I write about these discounts a few times a year, but it is something that is worth repeating periodically because of how many miles it can save your family on AAdvantage award trips. The list…

60,000 Mile Increased American Airlines Bonuses Ending Today

Earlier this summer it seemed like every rewards credit card out there had a temporarily increased sign-up bonus, but one by one most of them have come to an end…at least for now. At some point today another temporarily increased bonus from a co-branded airline card is scheduled to drop back down to earth, this time it will reportedly be the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select personal and small business cards ending their increased bonuses. I know that AAdvantage miles aren’t a…

Right now the AAdvantage eShopping portal has a unique promotion going on where you can earn bonus miles for the purchases you make across their site from 6/5/2017 – 6/30/2017.

My bonus was 1,200 bonus miles with $300 in cumulative spending from 6/5 – 6/30, which isn’t earth shattering, but isn’t terrible…
