American Express Membership Reward Points Transfer to Virgin America Ending October 31

Good afternoon everyone, I have another short blog post about American Express to share.  I hope you liked my morning post: $10 Statement Credits Just Posted for Jifiti Nike Promo / $50 Nike eGift Card AMEX Offer.  I was going through my American Express credit card statements and spotted this announcement at the bottom of my American Express Everyday Credit Card statement.  Effective November 1, transfers from American Express Membership Reward Points to Virgin America will no longer be possible.  The last day to make transfers to Virgin America is October 31.

$10 Statement Credits Just Posted for Jifiti Nike Promo / $50 Nike eGift Card AMEX Offer

Good morning everyone, I just logged into my American Express online account and saw a $10 statement credit from “AMERICAN EXPRESS COMNEW YORK”.  I did a little digging and discovered that it was the $10 statement credit from the $50 Nike eGift Card AMEX Offer from a few weeks ago.

Walmart.com Orders Instantly Cancelled? Try Walmart’s Online Chat

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few weeks ago, American Express released an AMEX Offer for Walmart.com where you can receive a $10 statement credit after spending $50 or more.  Walmart.com sells several gift cards and egift cards, so I wanted to buy a $50 Uber egift card.  Shortly after placing my order, I received a confirmation email from Walmart.  All looked good until…

…exactly 1 minute later, I received an email from Walmart that my order was canceled.  I didn’t even have time to put my American Express credit card back into my wallet before my order was instantly cancelled.  So frustrating!

Unboxing my New American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card & Card Art

Good morning everyone, happy Thursday!  Last week, I applied for the much talked about new American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card.  The sign up bonus was decent (20,000 Membership Reward Points after spending $3,000 in 3 months), the 2x on all spend for the first $50,000 in purchases every year is great, and having no annual fee is the perfect reason to hold on to this credit card for years to come.  In this post, I will walk you through the approval process and “unbox” the new credit card and show you what the new credit card looks like.  (Disclaimer: there is no box, just a UPS Second Day Air flat envelope.)

Great First Experience Calling American Express Platinum Concierge for Restaurant Reservations

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your Memorial Day Weekend is going well.  I have the American Express Business Platinum Charge Card and some of the card benefits get a lot of attention: Centurion Lounge access, Priority Pass membership, $200 airline reimbursement annually, Global Entry fee reimbursement, and the 50% Pay with Points rebate on flights.

Surprisingly, there are several other less talked about benefits of the American Express Business Platinum Charge Card too.  One such benefit that I just used for the first time was the American Express Business Platinum Charge Card Concierge (I believe the various versions of the American Express Platinum Charge Card also have this benefit).  I wanted to make a dinner reservation for a special occasion and I wasn’t having any luck with OpenTable (unless I wanted a 5pm or 10pm reservation – no thank you!).  I decided to call the Concierge (1-800-492-8468) and see if they could help me out.  If you have a personal American Express Platinum Charge Card, just call the number on the back of your card and you can navigate to the Concierge Department.
