Good evening everyone, I hope your Labor Day Weekend is going great. Here is a quick post from the Holiday Inn Express in Springdale, Utah, home to Zion National Park (trip report coming soon as soon as my blisters heal). On my recent American Express Platinum Charge Card statement, I noticed a few new announcements/changes. The first change is that American Express Membership Reward Points will no longer be transferable to Best Western starting January 1, 2016. Granted that Best Western is not a very good transfer option, this is still another devaluation (if ever so slightly) to the American Express Membership Reward Points program. A few months ago, I discovered that American Express Changes: 250 Membership Reward Points = 200 British Airways / Iberia Avios starting on October 1, 2015.
In positive news, the “Return Protection Coverage” provided by all American Express credit/charge/business cards is being improved to cover all US territories (good news for my friend on Guam). I’ve personally never used this feature of my American Express cards, but it’s nice to have regardless.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
P.S. here’s a pic from my brother’s GoPro selfie stick from Observation Point overlooking Angel’s Landing :)
