US Airways 60K-ish offer

Barclaycard has just enhanced their US Airways credit card offer. They are now offering 50,000 miles after first purchase (previously 40K).  That’s a fantastic offer considering that there is no minimum spend requirement.  The $89 annual fee is not waived the first year. US Airways Preferred members (and others willing to risk it) can sign up for a special offer that gives 10,000 additional bonus miles on the first account anniversary.  In the past people…

200,000 easy points, giving up on a hunch, and the experiment that wasn’t

In January, I wrote about my plans for my wife’s next round of credit card applications (see “Earning points while my better half waits”).  In that post, I listed a number of cards that I was considering for her, but I also said that I was waiting for the next big offer to appear.  I said that the Citi 100K offer was terrific, but also that “I feel like something else big is coming.”  Well,…

Tips for spending $10K to get 110,000 miles

On Tuesday, after publishing my Quick Deal about the new Citi Executive AA 100K offer, I added the card to my Best Credit Card Offers page, and I applied for the card myself.  At the end of the online application process, the website told me to call to finalize the application.  I called the number on the screen and, after a long time on hold, I gave the agent my application ID (also shown on…

Doubling portal promos, and more. A 50X example

While researching a post from a couple of days ago (“Sears 25X via an interesting confluence of events“) I realized something that probably should have been obvious to me all along.  When double dipping through a portal (e.g. buying gift cards to get points and then using the gift cards to buy merchandise and get more points) you can not only double the portal’s bonus for that merchant, but you can also effectively double points…

Waiting and watching for points to post

Last week, Sears offered 12 to 16 miles per dollar through the United MileagePlus Shopping portal and then 12 miles per dollar through the AAdvantage eShopping portal.  Many of us jumped in and bought gift cards, e-gift cards, and merchandise. In many ways, many purchases were a leap of faith.  For example, e-gift cards at Sears haven’t worked for earning portal points for quite a while, but at the beginning of these promotions the Sears’…
