Limited Time: Earn 3 Award Nights With One Card Bonus

I’ve started to hear more and more about folks considering giving up on their hotel rewards credit cards, which I personally think is often a mistake, especially if the card comes with an annual night worth more than the annual fee. However, of course everyone has to do the math for themselves and naturally some cards are better than others. I completely understand that after the first year, the math to keep the card gets harder to justify than it…

New No Annual Fee Uber Visa Awards as Much as 4% Back

Today Barclaycard announced a new Uber Visa credit card that will be available to applicants beginning on November 2, 2017. This new card is a little fascinating to me as it is a no annual fee card that delivers some pretty solid returns, but perhaps not in the categories that you might expect. First things first, the Uber Visa will be available on 11/2/17, with a new customer bonus of $100 after you spend $500 on purchases in the first 90…

Great Targeted Offer to Earn 4x American Miles Per Dollar!

I got pretty excited the other day at the notion of earning 2.125 miles per dollar on my United Club Card thanks to a targeted promo (read linked post to see if your United card was targeted), but as the rewards-card-powers-that-be would have it, that shiny offer got over-shadowed pretty quickly as something even better arrived in my inbox. My AAdvantage Aviator Red Mastercard just received an offer to earn 3x bonus miles for every $1 spent from 10/1/17 –…

Popular 50,000 Point Bonus Rumored to End Very Soon

BARCLAYCARD OFFER REFERENCED BELOW IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE A consistent sign-up bonus for at least the last year or so has been the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard and its 50,000 bonus miles worth $525 in travel awarded after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 90 days. Now the terms of the offer state its a limited time offer and can be canceled at any time without notice, but once an offer has hung around for that…

New Barclaycard Targeted Flights Cents Trial Program

I’m kind of crushing on the creativity of a new program being piloted by the AAdvantage Aviator Mastercard to targeted accounts. They are introducing a new Flight Cents pilot program beginning October 1st where, if you are targeted and opt in, you are essentially buying American Airlines miles with each purchase you make on the card that isn’t a round dollar amount at a rate that varies based on the offer your account was targeted for. Confused yet? Let me try to explain……

Best Offer: 60,000 American Miles Awarded With First Purchase

Way back in the rewards credit card dark times (you know, like four or five years ago), it was relatively common for most sign-up bonuses to be awarded upon the first use of your new credit card. This has slowly but surely changed as the minimum spending requirements to trigger sign-up bonuses have inched up from $1,000 to $2,000 and beyond. However, there are exceptions, and right now there is a card with not only an increased sign-up bonus, but…

Getting 10% of Redeemed American AAdvantage Miles Instantly Rebated

In the last few weeks I have been using more American Airlines AAdvantage miles than I had in recent history, and in doing so I have noticed a very cool trend that may be old news to others, but was new info for me. One of my favorite perks of the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard, the Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Red, and Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Silver Elite credit cards is that they return 10% of your redeemed American miles to you each year.  …

AAdvantage Barclaycards Gain New “Super Power”

In the last few years airline frequent flyer programs have transformed from being largely based around how many miles someone flies in a calendar year, to a hybrid of caring very much both about how many miles are flown by a customer, but also how much was spent on those tickets. This opens the door for various airline co-branded credit cards to factor into the equation with credit card specific waivers to help cover the spending facet of earning elite…

Bonus Miles for Some AAdvantage Aviator Cards

I know there is a fine line of helpfulness when sharing various targeted offers on this blog, but when an offer has a history of being available to many I think it is more useful than not to go ahead and share. In the case of targeted spending bonuses on the former US Airways MasterCard, now AAdvantage Aviator Card, this seems to apply. This card has a long history of offering cardmembers lucrative targeted spending bonuses for putting X amount…

Start Saving for College the “Easy” Way + Try to Win $529

I was very lucky to make it out of my years as an undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin without any student loan debt thanks to scholarships and my parents’ support, but the same could not be said about my years in grad school at NYU. I’m embarrassed to even tell you how much my Master’s degree cost, even after scholarships. I will say that I graduated from NYU in 2005, and now 11 years later, I still have…
