I have to chuckle a bit at Delta raising the minimum spending requirement on the co-branded Delta Amex Cards from $25,000 per year to $250,000 per year if you want to have an elite qualifying dollars waiver for their top tier Diamond Status. As it stands, for all of their elite status levels you don’t have to worry about spending a minimum amount on your Delta tickets to qualify for elite status as long as you spend $25k per year…

New Sign-Up Bonuses for the Amex Blue Cash Cards

While I focus largely on earning miles and points with my rewards credit cards, I have nothing against cold hard cash back. In fact, I hear more and more people, even within miles and points circles, talking about focusing their everyday spending on cash back cards. If you fall into that camp, then you will want to know that two cash back cards just updated their sign-up bonuses. While they are both increased the statement credit you can earn after…

New Amex Centurion Lounge Coming to DFW in 2018

The American Express Centurion Lounge in Dallas is my favorite of all of the Amex lounges I have visited, largely because of the amenities including a complimentary spa and a family room. However, since opening day in 2013, it has only gotten more and more crowded for Platinum Card® from American Express and their guests…even after guesting privileges were restricted to two complimentary guests per cardholder earlier this year. Amex has said to me that they had plans in the work to deal…

Hilton Weekend Award Night That Doesn’t Require $10,000 in Spending (Expired)

This offers described in this post have expired, please head here for up to date credit card information.  Things in the rewards credit card space aren’t always that simple as there can be multiple versions of a program’s co-branded card, sometimes even issued by multiple banks. This was the case for the Hilton Honors co-branded cards as there were multiple fee and no annual fee versions of Hilton cards issued by multiple banks leading to lots of options…and lots of confusion.

Brand New Delta Card With No Annual Fee!

As I talked about a little bit a few days ago when covering the increased sign-up bonus on JetBlue’s no annual fee credit card, while some of us in the miles and points world aren’t afraid of annual fees because we travel enough to know that we will get our money’s worth, there is a whole other (large) subset of people who absolutely do not want to pay annual fees for their credit cards. Or, even if they are okay with…

Limited Time 100,000 Point Hilton Offer (Expired)

The offers in this post have expired, please head here for up to date credit card offers. Recently the Hilton Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express temporarily bumped its sign-up bonus al the way up to 100,000 Hilton Honors points after you spend $3,000 on the card in the first 3 months. I totally understand that 100,000 points is an eye-catching and impressive number, however I don’t actually think it is the best part of this increased bonus. I think the best part comes on…
