PSA: Follow up on Missing AMEX Offer Statement Credits (Especially MGM Offer)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  A few months ago, my girlfriend and I went to Lost Wages Las Vegas and stayed at the beautiful Bellagio hotel.  We even upgraded to a fountain view room with amazing views of the Bellagio fountains.  I booked this specific hotel because Bellagio is part of MGM, and there was an AMEX Offer for $50 off $250 at MGM properties.  That AMEX Offer expired on January 8, but there are similar MGM AMEX Offers currently running (see the 2 AMEX Offers at the bottom of this post).  Long story short, I paid for the stay before the AMEX Offer expired, but the $50 statement credit never posted.  After waiting for more than 2 months, I called AMEX and they were able to manually add the $50 statement credit to my account.  Here is the MGM AMEX Offer that I was enrolled in:

American Express Small Business OPEN Savings Program Ending June 1, 2018

Good evening everyone, the hits keep coming from American Express.  Earlier today, I reported that American Express is no longer awarding Membership Rewards points for cash equivalents & person-to-person payments.  And just now, I looked at my American Express Business Platinum Charge Card and saw that the OPEN Savings Program is ending June 1, 2018.  I’m not why the program is ending, but I guess the program costs American Express more money than the program brings in.

AMEX Membership Rewards Changes: No Points for Cash Equivalents (Gift Cards) & Person-to-Person Payments (Venmo)

Good morning everyone, I was looking through my recent American Express statement and saw an ominous message on my American Express EveryDay Credit Card.  The message said, “See page 5 for a Notice of Change to the Membership Rewards Program Terms & Conditions.”  Uh oh, that sounded pretty bad.  I cautiously scrolled down to page 5 expecting the worst.  What did American Express do?

US Bank FlexPerks Rewards Website Gets a Facelift (But No New Features)

Good morning everyone.  A few days ago, I was on the US Bank FlexPerks Rewards website and noticed that the layout was new and refreshed.  I wanted to see if US Bank added any new features to this website, but as far as I can tell, the facelift looks nice, but there are no new features added.  One new change is immediately apparent on the homepage.  You can sign in with your last name, first initial, zipcode, and last 4 digits your US Bank FlexPerks Rewards Credit Card.

Hilton Free Weekend Night Certificates Posted from my Citi Hilton Reserve Credit Cards

Updated at 12:40pm PT on 2/13: My Hilton account now shows the 2 Free Weekend Night Certificates in my account.

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  I have a short post today on the Hilton Free Weekend Night Certificate.  I used to have 2 Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Credit Cards and spent $10,000 on each credit card before the conversion to the American Express Hilton Ascend Credit Card.  This morning, around 2am PT, I received 2 emails regarding my Free Weekend Night Certificates.  These Free Weekend Night Certificates came earlier than I was expecting and did not mention anything about spending a combined $15,000 on the Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Credit Card and American Express Hilton Ascend Credit Card.  Here is what the Free Weekend Night Certificates email looks like.  You have to make a reservation before the expiration date listed in the email.  I believe your reservation can be anytime after that though.
