Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Last Friday, I read Frequent Miler’s post about the Lyft AMEX Offer (spend $75 or more and get $15 cash back).  In the post description, Stephen explained the process of buying Lyft gift cards to trigger the AMEX Offer.  I will show you how to purchase Lyft gift cards and how quickly the cash back posts after completing the AMEX Offer.

PSA: Set Up Text & Email Alerts to Catch Fraud Right Away

Good morning everyone.  A few days ago, I received 2 texts from Discover regarding a Fox Rent A Car charge on my Discover It Credit Card.  Unfortunately, I was nowhere near a Fox Rent A Car location and have never rented a car from Fox Rent A Car.  I quickly logged into my Discover app and looked at the transaction details.  It appears there was a charge for $301.92 and then a refund of $301.92.  The other weird thing is the “THUMB*IT” description name.  I immediately called Discover and told them my credit card was stolen and reported the transactions as unauthorized.  The Discover rep assured me that I would not be responsible for these transactions and would send out a replacement credit card right away.  If it weren’t for the text alerts, I may not have noticed that my Discover It Credit Card was stolen, since my balance would not have increased since the transactions cancelled each other out.  This is a great reminder of having text alerts set up for your credit cards.

Cannot View American Express Credit Card Statements Online? Check AMEX App

Good morning everyone.  Last week, I got an email from American Express that my October 2018 AMEX Old Blue Cash Credit Card statement was ready to view.  As soon as my credit card statement is available, I usually log into my American Express online account, download and view the credit card statement, and then pay the full balance due.  I have done this hundreds of times in the past, but never run into a problem, until now…

Bank of America Core Checking Account $150 Bonus, But I Only Received $100 [Resolved]

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you had a great Columbus Day Weekend, I had a great time in Santa Cruz with my girlfriend.  A few months ago, Doctor of Credit wrote a post about a $150 bonus on a Bank of America Core Checking Account.  The $150 bonus was only available if you were referred to the offer.  Thankful, a helpful Doctor of Credit reader sent me a referral email.  I received the referral email on July 20 and signed up for the checking account the same day.  The bonus requirements were pretty simple: receive 2 $500 direct deposits within 90 days.  Done.  Now all I had to do was wait for the $150 bonus to post to my account.  All was going well until I only received a $100 bonus…

Which of Hyatt’s New Properties Excite You Most?

Some rumors stay rumors and some materialize. In the case of Hyatt’s acquisition of Two Roads Hospitality, I’m thrilled the rumor materialized. Bringing Two Roads Hospitality under the World of Hyatt umbrella adds 23 new markets and potentially 85 properties. Any increase in Hyatt’s footprint is a good thing. More opportunities to both redeem and earn Hyatt points are always welcome.

I wasn’t living under a rock yesterday when this news broke, but I was preoccupied with drinking coffee and talking with baristas in one of my favorite cities thereby creating another Bean Around the World post for TWG readers. I’m late to the announcement party, but in this case better late than never.

Even though the integration of these new properties won’t happen until 2019, I’m looking ahead and was actually surprised when I looked at the list of properties being added to the Hyatt portfolio how many I’ve either stayed at, knew about, or would be interested in visiting. I may even have to get my skis out of storage for some of these fun locations!

It will be interesting to watch this unfold, see which properties do become Hyatt properties, how elite benefits will be honored, and the points award charts for some of these unique properties. For me, one major disappointment in this acquisition is that even though Hyatt’s expansion with Small Luxury Hotels increases its scope in Europe, this acquisition does not. Come on Hyatt, show Europe more love!

Do any of the properties Hyatt’s bringing on board through this acquisition peak your interest? Any you’ve already stayed at you’d recommend?
