Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I was reviewing my recent American Express statements and saw a few changes that I wanted to bring to your attention. As far as I can tell, none of these changes are major, but if you see anything that stands out to you, please let me know in the comments. There were 3 changes to details regarding cash advances, contactless transactions, and the American Express Business Gold Card. These notices appeared on all of my American Express cards. The first change is regarding cash advances. I wasn’t able to find the current definition of cash advances, but the new definition of cash advances includes “cash equivalents” and I am not sure if that means gift cards or not.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Yesterday, Frequent Miler wrote about the new Shop with Dell benefit for American Express Business Platinum Charge Card holders. I wanted to add onto that idea with my experience buying from Dell and stacking 2 deals: the $100 Shop with Dell benefit and a Dell AMEX Offer. To get started, sign into your American Express account and go to Benefits on your American Express Business Platinum Charge Card. Then click the Get Started button.
Good morning everyone. A few days ago, AwardWallet notified me that my Wyndham Rewards points balance went up 3,000 points. I did not transfer La Quinta Returns Points to Wyndham Rewards Points and I haven’t used my Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card in several months, so I was very surprised to see the 3,000 bonus points in my account. I vaguely remember when I first got the credit card that having the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card makes me a Wyndham Rewards Platinum Elite Member. And as a Wyndham Rewards Platinum Elite Member, I get 3,000 annual bonus points. Mystery solved!
Good morning everyone. As part of my “Keep, Cancel or Convert?” series, I like to evaluate and reevaluate credit cards to make sure they still deserve a spot in my wallet (or at least my credit card drawer). A few weeks ago, the $99 annual fee posted to my Barclays JetBlue Plus Credit Card. I don’t fly JetBlue very often, but I do enjoy getting a 10% rebate on my redeemed miles and getting 5,000 bonus anniversary points every year. Those 2 benefits alone are probably worth close to $99, depending on how much you value JetBlue points and how many JetBlue points you redeem. So the question is, is this card a keeper? I was leaning toward keeping the credit card, but I decided to call Barclays and ask if there were any retention offers available anyway. Good thing I called…
Good afternoon everyone. I love my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card and have gotten great value from this credit card. I have written extensively about this credit card in these posts:
- American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card: Welcome Packet, Welcome Letters & Card Art
- American Express Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card: Spend Tracker, Referrals & All Benefits
- How Quickly Does Hilton Diamond Elite Status Appear After Getting Approved for AMEX Hilton Honors Aspire Credit Card?
- American Express Hilton Aspire $250 Airline Fee Credits Post Quickly
- Does the $450 Annual Fee Count Toward AMEX Hilton Aspire Minimum Spend? Maybe Yes
- When Does the AMEX Hilton Aspire Free Weekend Night Certificate Post to Your Account?
In today’s post, I will show you how I stacked a DoubleTree AMEX Offer (spend at least $225 and get a $45 statement credit) with the $250 Resort Credit offered on the American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card. I am a big fan of AMEX Offers and occasionally you will see Hilton related AMEX Offers on your American Express Hilton credit cards. As luck would have it, there was this nice DoubleTree AMEX Offer available on my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card. This offer is still available for the next 3 days, if you are interested.
