New Priority Pass Select Airport Restaurants and Lounges

One of the perks of several premium rewards credit cards including The Platinum Card® from American Express and Chase Sapphire Reserve is included membership in the Priority Pass Select lounge network. You need to activate this membership once you get those credit cards, but then you can access over 1,000 lounges around the world. Some of these lounges are good and some aren’t really worth getting excited over, but the new trend to include airport restaurants in the Priority Pass Select network is…

How to Get the Lowest Black Friday Prices Right Now

One of my daughters is already off of school for Thanksgiving Break and the other one will be arriving off of the bus at any moment, so let’s go ahead and talk about Black Friday sales. Or rather, let’s talk about why you don’t need to wait for them to start to go ahead and get what you want or need at the lowest prices of the season (while stacking up the mileage earnings, of course). You can buy now…

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…

OFFERS EXPIRED! Last Chance for Up To 70,000 Delta SkyMiles OFFERS EXPIRED!

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…

How to Get Big Value from the Starwood Amex Sign-Up Bonuses

Honors™ Surpass® Card from American Express  Is No Longer Available through this Site. The longer-term future for the SPG program and the SPG co-branded Amex credit cards is not yet clear given the acquisition of Starwood by Marriott, but in the here and now, I believe SPG points to be the most valuable type of mile or point out there. The SPG program is one of my favorites as high-quality stays can be had for a reasonable number of points. In…

Open to All California Residents: Southwest Companion Pass With One Purchase on New Card!

I’m officially green with envy if you live in California as the insane offer to earn a Southwest Companion Pass valid through the end of 2018 with just one purchase on your new Southwest card is reportedly now open to all California residents instead of just those who were lucky enough to be targeted the first time around. With this crazy offer, not only do you get the Companion Pass until the end of 2018 with card approval and just one…

Over 150 Cities on January American Reduced Mileage Awards List!

A very valuable discount that is available to those who hold one of the American Airlines Citi or Barclaycard co-branded credit cards is a discount of up to 7,500 miles on saver award flights to/from select cities each month via the Reduced Mileage Awards list. I write about these discounts a few times a year, and I’m excited to share that the January 2018 list of reduced mileage awards is much longer than normal at well over 150 eligible cities!  These discounts are…

Make One Purchase Get a Southwest Companion Pass – Targeted

I have seen some pretty outstanding credit card sign-up bonuses in my time in this hobby, but this one that @DaiCa2011 just shared with me on Twitter has to be one of the coolest. While the sign-up bonus points you get from the Southwest credit cards have historically counted towards the 110,000 Rapid Reward points you need to earn in a calendar year to secure the Southwest Companion Pass, it always takes at least two credit card sign-up bonuses to get the 110,000…
