New AMEX Offer for Etsy: $15 Off $50 (Expires 9/30)

Good morning everyone.  I was just looking through my AMEX Offers and spotted an offer for Etsy.  You can get a $15 statement credit after spending $50 online.  I have never bought anything from Etsy, but I know they have some pretty cool stuff.  This offer was on every single one of my cards (except for the AMEX Blue Business Plus Credit Card, which never seems to have any AMEX Offers).

If you are an Etsy expert, tell me what items I should buy.  Does anyone sell on Etsy?  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

Trip Report: Priority Pass Club MOBAY Lounge at Montego Bay, Jamaica Airport

After checking out of the butler suite at the All-Inclusive Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica, I had some time before my flight home, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Club MOBAY at the Montego Bay, Jamaica, airport.  It was even better to find they accepted Priority Pass.  If you are not a Priority Pass member, there are several travel reward credit cards which offer a Priority Pass membership by being a credit card holder. You can also access Priority Pass Lounges without your Card (Priority Pass App + Apple Wallet).

You enter the lounge by going downstairs and checking in at the desk.  This desk is in a hallway; the lounge rooms are accessible from here, as well as the spa and restrooms.  Inside the lounge, there are several other rooms which made for decent privacy and great noise barriers.  It was easy to find a space that was reasonably quiet.

Wells Fargo Propel World AMEX Sign Up Bonus Posts Slowly

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.  In March, I wrote a blog post where I contemplated applying for 10 credit cards during my March App-O-Rama.  In April, I shared the results of my App-O-Rama. And then in May, I wrote My March App-O-Rama Credit Card Sign Up Bonuses Post.  One noticeable exception to that last post was the 40,000 Go Far Rewards Points sign up bonus for my Wells Fargo Propel World American Express Credit Card.  I patiently waited for the sign up bonus to post, but it seemed like the points got lost (insert bad joke that Wells Fargo is still using horse-drawn stagecoaches to deliver sign up bonuses and maybe a bank robber intercepted my points).

Missing Out on Targeted Pre-Approved Credit Card Offers? Make Sure to Opt-In!

(Hat Tip to Donnie)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Sunday.  I hope you are enjoying your long Fourth of July weekend, wherever you may be.  I wanted to give a quick thank you to the readers who attended my OC travel hackers meetup yesterday afternoon – it was great talking to you all and I look forward to organizing another OC meetup in mid September.

For most people, pre-approved credit card offers are useless junk mail that fills up their mailbox.  But to travel hackers like myself, I love getting pre-approved credit card offers.  Usually, those offers are much better than the publicly available credit card offers.  If you want to ensure you are receiving your fair share of pre-approved credit card offers, make sure you opt-in on OptOutPrescreen.com, which is the only internet website authorized by Equifax, Experian, Innovis and TransUnion for consumers to opt-out or opt-in to receiving pre-approved credit card offers. To get started, click on the above link and click the button on the bottom of the page.
