Rundown of Marriott and Starwood Credit Card Bonuses

Earlier this week we got the official word that beginning in 2018, there will be some new Marriott credit card products and that both Chase and American Express will be issuers of cards in the Starwood/Marriott/Ritz Carlton portfolio. Not all of the details were announced, but we learned enough to know that there will be some shake-ups in the current credit card line-up come 2018. It is likely, though not 100% confirmed, that at least some of the current card…

More Increased Amex Bonuses Available to Some in CardMatch

On Friday I shared the good news that some lucky folks were seeing big targeted 100,000 point Amex Platinum welcome bonuses available via CardMatch™. Those 100,000 point Platinum offers are still on CardMatch as of today (12/5/2017), but the news is better than just that eye-catching headline as there are other special offers also available to some without the big $550 annual fee that comes along with the Amex Platinum Card. I’ll use my dad as an example, as I don’t believe…

Marriott Credit Cards to Be Issued By Chase and American Express

Many of us have been waiting anxiously to learn what will happen on the co-branded credit card front for Marriott and Starwood Preferred Guest as they move forward in their merger. We recently got confirmation that the programs will remain separate in 2018, but beyond that, it is quite possible that a combined program is on the horizon, potentially as early as 2019. We don’t know those details yet, but we now have learned a lot more about what will…

Fly Star Alliance Airlines for Less With New Transfer Bonus from Membership Rewards to Aeroplan

Via one my favorite award programs, Aeroplan, you can currently get some very good deals on award flights thanks to a 20% transfer bonus from the Amex Membership Rewards program and cards like The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card and The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card. Update: While my account is showing the transfer bonus, it seems that not all Membership Rewards accounts are showing the bonus. I don’t yet know if this is a targeted transfer bonus, only tied to certain…

Seasonal Amex Centurion Pop-Up Lounge Coming to London

A few years ago there was a pop-up United Club in the Houston Galleria during the holiday shopping season and it even though it had some pretty basic offerings, it was still neat to have a place where you could retreat, have a snack, and take a break from the holiday shopping craziness. While in London for the Olympics several years ago, Chase had an even cooler pop-up lounge for their Visa cardholders, and now the game has been upped…

New SoulCycle Discounts and Perks Via Amex Platinum

A glaringly obvious and still barely touched category where rewards credit card perks could dramatically expand is the realms of health and fitness. You have rewards credit cards that offer bonuses on the spending categories of cell phones, dining, internet, satellite, travel, grocery shopping, and so much more, but name one that offers a category bonus on a gym membership or fitness classes. I still can’t really name any off-hand, but The Platinum Card® has now expanded into offering some perks for…

DELTA SKYMILES OFFERS REFERENCED BELOW HAVE EXPIRED! For the first time ever, the airline miles I think we have used the most this year in our travels are Delta SkyMiles. In fact, we used up every Delta mile that we had and then had to transfer in some more from the Amex Membership Rewards program. I never thought I would find myself doing that since for years I bought into the “SkyPesos” moniker for SkyMiles, but this year I have…

Three Reasons to Apply for the SPG Business Amex By November 1st (Offer Expired)

The co-branded SPG American Express credit cards have increased their sign-up bonuses temporarily for a month or so each summer in each of the last few years. However, this summer came and went with nothing but crickets when it came to seeing an increased bonus from either the personal or small business SPG Amex credit cards. I chalked it up to the unclear future of the cards thanks to the SPG/Marriott merger, and I was very unsure as to if…
