The best hotel credit card ever

What is the best hotel credit card there has ever been? If you’d say the old SPG card, I’d have been with you until the early hours this morning. If you’d have said the Hilton Aspire to me yesterday, I might not have argued with you much.

My first instinct is that these changes likely are not positive for most cardholders considering the 32% increase in the annual fee. New Additions New additions coming to the Business Platinum card in 2019 include:…

Yes, Greg, Amex 4X failure is a big deal

This morning, Greg published a post about the disappointing reports about the new Amex Gold card not earning 4x at some restaurants, even in situations where Amex clearly shows “restaurant” as the merchant code online.

Based on some reader reports, it seems like some of the following are…
