Good afternoon everyone. Today is the day Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Credit Cards are officially converted to American Express Hilton Honors Ascend Credit Cards. I logged into my Citi online account and noticed that my 2 Citi Hilton Honors Reserve Credit Cards are missing from my account. The only remnant of their existence is the last 4 digits of the credit card number and links to unlink the credit cards. A few days ago, I wrote a post on how to remove / unlink Citi credit cards, so check that out if you have any questions.
I then went through the process of setting up both of my American Express Hilton Honors Ascend Credit Cards. I was able to add both of those credit cards to my American Express online account and there were several AMEX Offers available too. I also called American Express to inquire about upgrade options to the American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card and asked about retention offers. All that info is below, so let’s get started!
Good afternoon everyone. I will be flying down to Orange County this weekend to watch the Super Bowl with my family, so I decided to do a travel hackers meetup on Saturday afternoon. If you are free this Saturday, I would love to meet you and talk travel, miles and points, MS, and politics blogging.
Chase Offers are very simple. Sign into your Chase Offers account, link merchant specific offers to your credit card, make a qualifying purchase at that specific merchant, and receive cash back as a statement credit to your credit card. Creating a Chase Offers account is free and easy, just click here to get started. If you have the Chase Slate Credit Card, the steps will be the same, but you can click here.
Good afternoon everyone. A few weeks ago, American Express sent out emails with the subject line “Cash Advance Enrollment Update.” Uh oh, “cash advance” are bad words to any travel hacker and credit card user. I decided to investigate further to see what American Express was up to regarding the cash advance feature on one of my credit cards. Based on the context of the email, it looks like American Express proactively enrolled me in the “Cash Advance program” without getting my permission. I decided to log in and see what was going on.
Good afternoon everyone, I have another short post for you guys. Recently, I decided that I no longer wanted my Citi Dividend Credit Card – the bonus categories did not excite me this year. So, I called Citi and asked if I could convert my Citi Dividend Credit Card into the Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card. Unfortunately, the rep said that credit card was not available as a conversion option on my Citi Dividend Credit Card. No worries, I asked if I could convert to the no annual fee Citi AT&T Access Credit Card instead. Yes, she said, I could convert to that credit card. I then asked her if I could then convert my Citi AT&T Access Credit Card to the Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card and she was not sure. I had a hunch that it would work, so I went ahead and converted my Citi Dividend Credit Card into the no annual fee Citi AT&T Access Credit Card. A few days later, I received my new Citi AT&T Access Credit Card.
