Barclaycard JetBlue Plus MasterCard 30,000 TrueBlue Points Sign Up Bonus Posted Slowly

Good morning everyone, happy Sunday!  This is a short post detailing how long the Barclaycard JetBlue Plus MasterCard 30,000 TrueBlue Points took to post to my JetBlue account.  I was instantly approved for the credit card on December 6 and received the credit card about a week later (card art and features).  My first statement closed on December 26.  The $99 annual fee posted on December 30.  I met the $1,000 minimum spend requirements on January 9.  My second statement closed on January 26 but the sign up bonus points were not on that statement.  The 30,000 JetBlue TrueBlue points finally posted on February 25 (2.5 months after getting the credit card and 1.5 months after completing the minimum spend requirement).

New Alaska Airlines MVP Gold / 75K Elite Members Should Have 4 Guest Upgrades (Expiring 12/31/2018)

Good morning everyone, happy Friday.  A few days ago, I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight for my brother (I am the personal travel agent for all my family members), and I was logged into my Alaska Airlines account.  2 weeks ago, I received 10,000 Alaska Airlines miles when my Virgin America account was linked to my Alaska Airlines account and my Virgin America Elevate Gold elite status matched to Alaska Airlines MVP Gold elite status.  I was curious if I had any guest upgrades in my Alaska Airlines account and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw.

Good morning everyone…just a reminder that we will be having a Meetup tonight at Bruz Beers in Denver, CO. We will be hosting Stefan Krasowski from Rapid Travel Chai! Stefan is a wealth of knowledge and has visited 189 of the world’s 193 UN recognized countries!

So, if you happen to be in the Denver/Front Range area of Colorado tonight, please join us for an informal Meetup at Bruz Beers in Denver, Colorado to share a brew, some food, and talk miles and points.

We are featuring a Q&A this month as mentioned before, where each member can pose one or two specific questions to the group as a whole and tap into everybody’s knowledge. We will also be discussing the possibility of hosting an International Meetup in the future.

  • Where: 1675 W 67th Ave #100, Denver, CO 80221 (Google Maps)
  • When: Thursday, February 28 from 7pm-9pm

Targeted US Bank Credit Card Offers: 2,000 Bonus FlexPoints & 5,000 Bonus Club Carlson Points

Update: I just received an email offer on March 1 for my US Bank Club Carlson Personal Visa Signature Credit Card.  Scroll to the bottom to see the details of that offer.

Good morning everyone, I just received 2 targeted credit card offers from US Bank.  The first is on my US Bank FlexPerks Visa Signature Credit Card and offers 2,000 bonus FlexPoints after spending $500 between March 1 and April 30.  You can log into your FlexPerks PromoSite portal and see if you have the same (or better) offer.  If you do not see the offer after logging in, you can try clicking this link to go directly to the offer, but YMMV.  This offer is really generous from US Bank and is a no brainer in my book since 2,000 FlexPoints is worth ~$40 to me.
