Amassing Membership Rewards

Amex Platinum Cards Multiple Varieties

At the time of this writing, my wife and I have a pretty nice collection of Membership Rewards points (over 600,000).  But, ever since Amex introduced the Amex Business card’s 50% pay with points rebate, we’ve been spending our points quickly.  When comparing different options for paying for flights, Amex Membership Rewards and the 50% Business Platinum point rebate almost always wins (see: Loving Amex Business Platinum’s Pay with Points Rebate). And that’s exactly what…

Going for the latest 100K Ultimate Rewards business card offer despite 5/24

Ink Cards 2

The Chase Ink Business Preferred card rolled out in the fall of last year with a mighty 80,000 point signup bonus.  I’ve been eager to get the card, but Chase’s 5/24 Rule has been a roadblock.  For most of their cards, Chase won’t approve your application if you’ve signed up for 5 or more cards from any bank within the past 24 months.  And I’m way over 5/24.  I’ve asked a couple of times in-branch…

PSA: Ask Delta for compensation if you were impacted by delays or cancellations


This is just a quick reminder that if your flights were significantly delayed or cancelled in the great Delta meltdown last week, then ask Delta for compensation if you haven’t received anything already. Earlier this week I described how my family of three was delayed just over 3 hours.  That delay was actually good for us since we were alerted in advance and so were able to sleep in.  Still, that didn’t stop me from…
