Refer Friends to 70,000 Mile Delta Amex Offer

If you aren’t yet an airline mileage free agent scooping up the good bonuses wherever you find them, then I’d put that on the list of 2018 things to work on accomplishing as staying loyal to one program just because that is what you know best is likely is costing you some pretty good opportunities to travel more for less. I personally ignored the Delta SkyMiles program for far too many years and missed out on some good opportunities as…

Final Days: Earn 2,000 Bonus Points With $50 Google Express Amex Offer

A great Amex Offer that I know lots of us have on our Amex Cards is a Google Express deal that is expiring on 12/28/2017. This is the sort of deal that is easy to lose in the shuffle, but it’s absolutely worth using before it expires if you have it available on any of your Amex cards. This Amex Offer awards 2,000 bonus Membership Reward points on a $50+ purchase on Google Express. I have to admit I hadn’t heard of Google…

How to Successfully Use Plenti Points at Macys.com

The roughly two-year-old American Express Plenti points program is having plenty of difficulties. They recently lost AT&T as a partner and are losing lots of additional partners including Nationwide, Direct Energy, Enterprise, National, Alamo, Hulu, and the Local Dining program effective on December 31, 2017. I’ve also now heard that the ability to transfer Amex Membership Reward points to Plenti will be ending in early 2018 as well. I can’t imagine that was a popular Membership Rewards redemption option, but losing a partnership within the…

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…
