60K Hawaiian miles after $1K with new business card offer

The Hawaiian Airlines® Business MasterCard® is now featuring an increased welcome offer for new applicants: 60,000 Hawaiian Miles after $1,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. The Offer Key Card Details Quick Thoughts We covered the previous offer which was a best I could recall at 50K miles after first purchase. This new offer now requires $1,000 in purchases in the first 90 days, but it rewards that spend with a new high offer of 60K Hawaiian Airlines miles…

Arrival Premier is dead at 6 months

As was reported by View from the Wing, Barclays has completely pulled the Arrival Premier World Elite Mastercard for new applications. The card apparently never caught on and Barclays decided to cut their losses. I’m not surprised to hear that the card wasn’t a massive success (I’d be more surprised that someone at Barclays expected it would be), but I am surprised to see them quit just 6 months after launch (and 3 months after adding…

Best-ever 64K Choice Privileges offer

The Choice Privileges Visa Signature card is out with a new and best-ever offer good for a total of 64,000 Choice Privileges points after meeting minimum spending requirements. The Offer Key Card Details Quick Thoughts This is a great offer if you’re interested in Choice points. While Choice has its quirks (e.g. you can only book award stays 100 days in advance), points can be reasonably valuable in many instances. In Scandinavia, Choice points are of particularly good…

Arrival Plus now waiving first-year fee

The Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard went on a brief hiatus earlier this year to make room for the launch of the Arrival Premier. When the Arrival Plus re-launched, it featured a nice welcome bonus of 60,000 points, but the annual fee was no longer waived the first year as it often had been in the past. That has changed today and once again the Arrival Plus is offering a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after $5,000…

New 50K JetBlue Business card offer

Barclays has increased the offer on the JetBlue Business credit card to 50,000 TrueBlue points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days. That’s a valuable offer for JetBlue flyers that is augmented by the 10% rebate on award flights. The Offer Key Card Details Quick Thoughts This is a nice offer for those who fly JetBlue. TrueBlue points have a somewhat variable value, but are generally worth just under 1.5c each. That makes this bonus…

Keep or cancel? Paring down a premium card collection

Last week, I wrote a post about considering which ultra-premium credit cards to keep (those with annual fees of $350 or more). That post inspired Greg to make an awesome spreadsheet for evaluating your ultra-premium cards (See: Your turn: Which Ultra Premium Cards are Keepers?). I initially set out this week to do a similarly mathematical analysis of my current collection of premium cards — those with annual fees around $100. I played with spreadsheets…

A JetBlue stacking opportunity hiding in plain sight?

In a presentation I’ve done at conferences about tools to be used to find great deals, one of the things I always suggest is to read the comments on blog posts. People often share their findings and experience with various deals and angles. Sometimes, through the collective experience of the Internet, you’ll stumble on great ideas you hadn’t considered. Just last week I stumbled on such a gem regarding the rebates on the JetBlue Plus and JetBlue Business…

(EXPIRED) $15 statement credit for adding an AU on Wyndham Visa [Targeted]

Barclays has sent out what I imagine is a targeted email offer to earn a $15 statement credit after adding an authorized user on a Wyndham Rewards Visa account. In my case, I’m betting I have received this offer as the annual fee is due to post on this account soon. It wouldn’t be surprising if this kind of offer may also be available on other cards around renewal time as Barclays often sends out offers to…

(EXPIRED) 50K after 1st purchase with Aviator Business

The Barclays Aviator Business card has had a limited-time offer of 50,000 American Airlines miles after first purchase that was thought to be scheduled to end on July 29th, 2018. However, that offer is still available. While some people find American Airlines miles more useful than others (see this past weekend’s week in review around the web for some good uses), fifty thousand miles after a single purchase is a good deal even if you find…
