Good afternoon everyone. I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers ending soon. Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you. Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind. With that said, here are 6 offers that end in November. Up first, Southwest Airlines is offering a 35% discount, when you purchase at least 5,000 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Points. This offer expires tomorrow – November 19.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. If you recently applied for the newly revamped American Express Green Card, you may have seen that a $100 Away credit is part of the sign up bonus. In this post, I will show you 5 things to buy with your $100 Away credit (even if you do not have / want an Away suitcase).
Good afternoon everyone. A few weeks ago, I received an email from IHG stating that I had reached IHG Spire Elite Status which required 75 qualified nights or 75,000 qualifying points. This was surprising to me since I haven’t spent that many nights at IHG hotels this year (only 16 nights in 2019), but I did have a few expensive hotel stays this year (82,768 qualifying points in 2019). In the email, it stated 3 key Spire Elite benefits:
- 100% bonus earning on top of base points (IHG Platinum Elite members get a 50% bonus)
- Complimentary room upgrades (this is the same as IHG Platinum Elite members)
- Exclusive annual choice benefit
The last bullet was the one that caught my attention. I had the option to choose between 25,000 IHG Points or gift someone IHG Platinum Elite Status. I clicked on the Choose Now button in the email and signed into my IHG account.
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! Last week, I Upgraded my Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Signature to JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite. A few days later, I received a small UPS Next Day Air package containing my new JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card. I will show you what came in the welcome package. But first, let’s start with the card art. This credit card has gone through a few different redesigns and this is the most current version. I have pictures of the 2 earlier card designs at the bottom of this post that I took from my original JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card unboxing in 2016.
Updated at 2:10pm PT on 11/14: After I made a $1 Groupon purchase through Drop, I earned Drop Points and unlocked the gift card redemptions. Scroll to the bottom of the post for more info.
Good morning everyone. I checked my Drop account yesterday and noticed a change to the Redeem Rewards screen. Listed at the top of the screen is a message regarding $5-$25 gift cards. I clicked on the message and learned that rewards between $2 and $25 are locked unless you make a purchase with the Drop app. I currently only earn Drop points when I make purchases with my linked credit cards. This is bad news for users who do not use the Drop app for shopping, but only for card linked purchases.
