Get New Airfare Discounts via Amex Platinum Cards!

I recently wrote a post exploring why the Amex Platinum card is worth it to my family even though it comes with a pretty large annual fee. Everyone’s situation is different, so the post wasn’t written to prove the card is worth it to anyone else, but rather to potentially help others think through whether it may also be worth it in their situation…especially beyond the first year where the math is usually much easier with the sign-up bonus. One…

The Math on Why the Amex Platinum Card is Worth It

I was recently explaining rewards credit cards to a friend who is interested in putting their toes into this world of traveling better for less thanks to miles and points. I love talking about this stuff in person to those who are new to it because it really gives me some good reminders about how crazy it all sounds at first…especially when said out loud and to other real humans. I recommended they start with some of the easier cards…

A Hotel Program You Really Want to Explore: Choice Privileges

Earlier this week I wrote about some things to think about if you find you aren’t really using your miles and points as much as you would like. If you are in that situation, one of the big things to think about and research is whether you are perhaps overlooking some travel partners or less popular redemption methods that may align with your travel patterns quite well, and that will work with the points you already have. As a specific example,…

Flash Sale: Head to Canada for 20,000 Miles or Less!

Yesterday was our first time attending a swim meet, and let’s just say I was woefully unprepared for the realities that a swim meet apparently entails. I showed up at the appointed time with a water bottle, a juice box, C’s swim gear, and a couple towels. I figured we would be there about two hours, watch her swim a few races from one of the countless chairs near the pool, and maybe chat with others watching the meet. Wrong.…

How to Use Your Delta Amex Statement Credits

The limited time increased Delta sign-up bonuses are running for a few more weeks until July 5th, and while the 60,000 – 70,000 SkyMiles part of the bonuses may be the most eye-catching part, it isn’t the only component to these increased offers. These cards and bonuses also include a $50 – $100 statement credit when you make a Delta purchase on the card in the first 4 months. This is actually really easy to do even if you don’t…

New Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus to Hawaiian!

BONUS TRANSFER OFFER HAS EXPIRED! I’m a huge fan of American Express Membership Rewards transfer bonuses where you get more points than normal when transferring to a hotel or airline partner during a bonus period. Just as there was last year about this time, there is now a new 25% transfer bonus from Amex Membership Rewards to Hawaiian Airlines running through 6/21/17. Those bonus works from Membership Rewards eligible cards such as the new Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express or The…

Earn 2,000 Bonus Membership Reward Points at Amazon! (Targeted)

Right now there is a very good targeted Amex Offer available on lucky Amex accounts that will get you 2,000 bonus Membership Reward points for $50 in cumulative Amazon.com spending by 12/31/17. That is over six months to spend just $50 on Amazon and get over half that value back in points…depending on how you value your Membership Reward points. I know targeted offers are very annoying for those not included, but this one was too valuable to not mention…
