Targeted Amex Platinum 100,000 Point Offer Returns!

The first credit card I obtained that had an annual fee of more than $100 was the Amex Platinum several years ago. The annual fee was a little lower back then than it is now, but still, the idea of paying hundreds of dollars for a rewards card took some getting used to. However, the math was solid as the 100,000 transferable Membership Reward points I received as a welcome bonus after hitting the spending requirement were worth at least $1,500…

Earn Points + Access $0 Balance Transfer Fees and 0% Intro APR

Around here we usually focus on rewards-earning credit cards for the rewards or built-in perks that they offer, but every now and then it is worth at least mentioning some of the actual credit that these cards can provide.

Right now there isn’t an increased public sign-up available for the Delta Amex Cards, but through tonight (1/31/18), there are some increased bonuses available via refer-a-friend links.…

Details on the New Amex Centurion Lounge Coming to JFK in 2019

Airport and air travel can be stressful, especially when delays happen, young children are involved, etc. One way to reduce the stress level a bit is to retreat to an airport lounge between flights. In the traditional US airline lounge model, this used to get you some WiFi, cheese and crackers, a free glass of cheap wine, and a nicer bathroom than the terminal can offer. It was better than nothing, but it wasn’t as exciting or relaxing as it…
