New 100K United Business Card offer

There is a newly-increased welcome bonus offer available on the United℠ Business Card that can be highly valuable, offering enough miles to potentially fly partner business class one way to virtually any destination in the world (pending availability) and in most cases have miles left over. In fact, if you leverage the excursionist perk the way we’ve written about in the past (and indeed if you nested excursionist perk flights like Greg did), this could…

[Back again] Highest-ever 120K Radisson card offer

The Radisson Rewards Premier Visa Signature card once again has its highest-ever new cardmember offer: get 120,000 Radisson points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. While this card is much less popular today than it once was, that’s still a potentially solid offer on a card that I personally think is underrated in the hotel card space. Don’t get me wrong — it’s not my favorite card on the market, but the return can be…

Update 1/20: Get National Executive Elite status through Feb 2022 (YMMV) w/ Amex

Update 1/2/20: This deal is back again for all American Express cardholders. It is well worth doing this now and potentially matching to Hertz President’s Circle (though I personally prefer renting through National). Note two awesome things about this deal: First, while the landing page suggests that status would be active until February of 2021, some people are reporting that their National accounts are showing Executive Elite status valid through February 28, 2022. That’s awesome and…

Unfortunately, this is one benefit that has gone from prevalent to mostly absent. However, in updating this guide, I found that there are a few cards which I’d previously missed that do in…
