My Roller Coaster Ride with Citi Reconsideration –  A wild ride of reconsideration phone calls that eventually result in several rounds of denials being overturned.

Soon You Will Be Able to Sign-Up For New Barclaycard AAdvantage Credit Cards! – American Airlines inked new deals with both Citi and Barclaycard which will allow both banks to issue AAdvantage credit cards to new customers.

Capital One Tightens their Credit Card Churning Rules – Changes to the way Capital One treats multiple applications and how often you can open a new account.

American Express sending out emails when you meet qualified spend – A very simple and appreciated acknowledgement that your bonus is coming.

How To Use The ANA Website To Find Star Alliance Awards – ANA’s website is powerful because it has all Star Alliance partners, but it isn’t the easiest to use.

How To Book Etihad Flights With American AAdvantage Miles – Since American doesn’t list Etihad award space on their website, this isn’t as straightforward as it probably should be.

Have a great weekend!
