(EXPIRED) 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

Update: This post references an offer that has since expired. See current offer information here. 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…

(EXPIRED) 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…

[Expired] Arrival Premier waives fee, adding partners

Barclays has made a key update to the Arrival Premier World Elite Mastercard card, waiving the $150 annual fee for the first year. Additionally, View from the Wing reports that Barclays is planning to add two new transfer partners by the end of July. While those partners — Finnair and Alitalia — are not wildly exciting options (and surely won’t be 1:1 transfers), he also reports that there is another more interesting partner in the works.   The…

(EXPIRED) Wyndham 45K offer is back

The offer for 45,000 total Wyndham Rewards points has returned once again on the $75-fee version of the Wyndham Rewards Visa from Barclays. This offer comes and goes, but it is the highest offer we see on this card. Since Wyndham Rewards charges 15,000 points per night for award stays at all properties, this offer is worth up to three free nights at any Wyndham property worldwide. Further, the points can be useful when transferred to La Quinta…
