New 35K Starpoints offer

Can you get a second Amex bonus under a second business?

The Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express has a newly increased signup bonus: 35,000 Starpoints after $7,000 in purchases within the first 3 months. Considering the fact that Chase and Amex will both be issuing (different) cards when the new Marriott card lineup comes out (See: Marriott announces new credit card lineup), this could be a last chance at a very lucrative signup offer that matches the largest bonus ever offered on this card.…

Up to 55%+ back on Hawaii resort with new stacking Hilton offer

Hilton already has a number of stacking opportunities, and now there is a new Amex Offer out for $45 back after $250 spend at Hilton Hotels & Resorts or Curio Collection. Interestingly, the terms of the offer state that using it will unlock another offer good for DoubleTree. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an Amex Offer that unlocks another Amex Offer (See: Bloomingdale’s Amex Offer might get even better than advertised), but it’s great to see this trend…

What’s the best Chase card that’s not subject to 5/24?

Dodging 5/24

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to speak at Frequent Traveler University Seattle. I enjoyed speaking about credit card benefits beyond the signup bonuses, tools I use for finding deals, and earning miles for a car purchase (more coming on this next week!). During one of my presentations, an attendee asked me a great question: What’s the best Chase card that’s not subject to the Chase 5/24 rule? I didn’t have an answer as quickly…

A drawback of multiple Amex logins

One of the reasons I love Amex cards is for Amex Offers. Every year, I get substantial value out of offers. In an effort to be able to sync great offers to multiple cards, I started creating new logins with newly approved cards last year. Unfortunately, I didn’t think ahead as to the disadvantage this might present down the road…. Why I created multiple logins When a great offer comes out, I often hope to find it…

No more 5x at MPX

In yet another piece of bad news for points and miles enthusiasts, reports online are indicating that purchases through the United Mileage Plus X (MPX) shopping app are no longer earning 5x on the Amex Platinum card. This card offers 5x on airfare purchases made with airlines. Purchases through the MPX app have historically coded as airfare purchases for the purposes of coding at 5x with this card, but multiple reports from different sources indicate this is…

That’s as good a bonus as we’ve…

Card art gone wrong: Where is the name of my card?

Reading Greg’s post this morning about the Marriott properties to book before the coming devaluation (See: Book these category 5 Marriott hotels before it’s too late) probably has some people reconsidering the value of their Marriott Rewards Premier credit card now that the annual free night certificate is losing a number of Category 1-5 options. That had me taking stock of my credit cards, and I couldn’t help but consider how they look, even if that isn’t…
