    Hilton kicked off 2018 by introducing a new ultra-premium credit card: Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card.  And, in August, the newly combined Marriott / SPG (Starwood) program will offer their own ultra-premium card: Starwood Preferred Guest® American Express Luxury Card.  Since Marriott, Starwood, and Ritz will become one program in August, the Starwood card really represents all three brands despite its name. What about the Ritz-Carlton Card?  The Ritz card is another $450 premium card. …

    Amex continues to roll out one great Amex Offer after another.  Many offers, like the Sam’s Club “Spend $30+, Get $15 back“, are for consumer cards only.  And they’re targeted.  That means that they are available to some people, but not others.  They are even targeted within individuals.  For example (for those with multiple Amex cards), you’ll frequently find an offer available on some of your Amex cards, but not all. In my case, my…

    Last week, it was widely reported that Amex had added more restrictive language to its applications regarding eligibility for the welcome bonus (See: Amex launches a sneak attack in the war on gaming), stating that an applicant may be denied the bonus based on the number of American Express cards they have opened and closed and their history with bonus offers. We wondered whether you would have any way to know your eligibility status before meeting…

    When Amex announced that their Hilton Surpass card would be renamed to “Hilton Honors Ascend Card from American Express”, I speculated that it might be possible to get a new welcome bonus on the Ascend as long as you closed your Surpass card before the transition.  Amex representatives, though, unanimously rejected the idea.  The company line was that the Ascend was not a new product.  Therefore, current and past Surpass cardholders would not be eligible…

    Barclays has added a new transfer partner for the Arrival Premier: Aeroplan. This is an interesting addition, and probably not in the way that Barclays would have hoped. Considering the fact that Aeroplan will cease to be the loyalty program of Air Canada in 2020, and there are cards that earn more Aeroplan miles with a lower fee on the market, adding Aeroplan as a transfer partner isn’t much of an improvement. However, on the bright…

    Are we about to lose our beloved Ink Cash 5X categories?  Via Twitter, a reader asked what’s up with Ink Cash: @FrequentMiler what’s up with Ink Cash 3x categories rather than the 5x/2x? https://t.co/shNlcMbbaJ — Jay P (@JayP76828046) June 24, 2018 He was referring to the fact that this Chase’s cardholder information page for the card shows 3% cash back categories rather than 5% and 2%.   Verdict: No, we’re not losing 5X categories.

  • 06/25/18--05:49: Keeping my Altitude Reserve
  • Recently I decided to fork over $400 to US Bank in order to keep my Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite card for another year.  I did this despite the fact that I have and plan to keep both the $450 Sapphire Reserve Visa Infinite card, and a $400 CNB Crystal Visa Infinite card.  I keep the Sapphire Reserve card for its 3X rewards for travel & dining, and its best in class travel protections.  Plus the…

    American Express has announced that a new benefit will be added to the personal Platinum card from July 1, 2018 – a $100 credit each year for Saks Fifth Avenue. You’ll get $50 to spend from January to June each year and then a further $50 from July to December. That makes the benefit slightly more complicated to keep track of, but it’s a nice little addition. Similar to the monthly Uber credit, the Saks…

    Chase and Hyatt have announced a brand new World of Hyatt Credit Card has been launched effective today. The card features a lot of changes compared to the old Hyatt Credit Card, most notably a path to spend to Globalist status that looks pretty good, not to mention a terrific signup bonus.

    Recently, I signed up for the Ritz-Carlton card.  Even though I’ve recommended getting it before August to lock in the new Marriott/SPG Platinum Elite status, that wasn’t why I signed up for it. The real reason was for the signup bonus of two free Tier 1-4 nights.  Tier 4 properties currently cost 60,000 points per night.  And when the Marriott/SPG/Ritz programs merge in August, all properties will be bookable for 60,000 points per night or…

    Over the past couple of years, when someone would ask me for advice on hotel credit cards, I would almost unequivocally say that one shouldn’t get a hotel credit card to use it (for spend outside of the chain anyway), but rather just for its welcome bonus…with the addendum that some hotel cards are worth keeping long-term for ongoing benefits (like an annual free night, status, etc). Reflecting on that, I’ve personally gathered too many hotel…

    The Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard has arrived on the scene once again, this time with a highest-ever 60,000 point welcome bonus after spending $5,000 in the first 90 days. While that is the highest introductory offer ever on this card, note that the $89 annual fee is not waived the first year this time around. Still, this is a great intro offer on a popular card that many will be glad to see return after a hiatus. We…

  • 07/06/18--09:18: 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…

    Barclays has made a key update to the Arrival Premier 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 Deal Barclays Arrival Premier…

    Chase has confirmed details about the Chase Ritz-Carlton and Chase Marriott Business cards, as well as details on how the new free night awards will work. Most of the key pieces are things we expected, though there is a bit more detail to fill in the blanks. One major negative change: the business version of the Marriott Rewards card will no longer earn an elite night credit per $3,000 spend when the new benefits launch on August 26th.…

    Since its launch in May, Marriott has been offering a new cardmember bonus of 100,000 Marriott Rewards points after spending $5,000 in the first three months on the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus card. That bonus is scheduled to end tomorrow (July 12th, 2018), so some will dub this a “last chance” to get 100,000 Marriott Rewards points. Is that true, and does it mean you should rush to get this card? I’d say the answer is no for most…

    Citi and American Airlines have announced that on July 22nd they be will launching a brand new credit card with no annual fee called the AAdvantage MileUp Card. While the new cardmember bonus isn’t terribly exciting, this might be an awesome option for a product downgrade and it might even work as an introduction to rewards cards for something starting out. Current Citi AAdvantage Bronze cardholders will also be transitioned to this card. The Offer Citi is launching a new American…

    I’ve written quite a bit lately about hotel credit cards, specifically noting my intention to migrate away from the many flavors of Marriott. I also recently noted how interesting I find the new World of Hyatt card — but due to Hyatt’s limited footprint, I couldn’t focus on Hyatt alone. And I wouldn’t have to — because the hotel card I’m most excited about is undoubtedly the Hilton Aspire card. Last night, I booked a…
