ScoreBig Extreme Stacking

By Anita, Lab Manager Event ticket seller ScoreBig offers rewards and bonuses through a variety of portals and partners, offering the tantalizing possibility of triple, quadruple, quintuple, or even sextuple reward stacking.

Bet You Didn’t Know: Enhancements to Amex’s Plenti Rewards Program?

plenti

By Julian, author of Devil’s Advocate…   Roughly a year ago Plenti Rewards arrived on the scene with an enormous thud. Designed to be a “coalition” rewards program similar to the AirMiles program in Canada, Plenti limped badly out of the gate. There were too few partners where you could earn points and even fewer partners where you could redeem them, all wrapped up with some terrible customer service and mediocre IT. As I wrote over on…

Citi teases with 16 month old “New Points Transfer Partner”

New Points Transfer Partner

A reader today asked whether there was any news about Citi allowing point transfers to AA.  He said that when looking at his Prestige account online, he found an American Airlines transaction flagged as a “New Points Transfer Partner”.

Just under the wire, my wife scores 125K in one day

125K in one day

Currently, Amex is offering 75,000 Membership Rewards points for $3K spend with their Mercedes-Benz branded platinum card.  That’s the highest offer I’ve ever seen for that card.  Even better, Amex briefly offered 100K points after $3K spend for their regular unbranded Platinum card.  Unfortunately, that offer disappeared at around 10:30 ET yesterday morning. Both cards have very high annual fees ($450 and $475, respectively) that are not waived the first year, but they come with…
