I Received Southwest Airlines Travel Reimbursement Payment via Hyperwallet (2 Months Later)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Back in December 2022, Laura and I were both impacted by the Southwest Airlines travel disruption.  I filled out the online form, provided our alternative travel receipts (we ended up flying Alaska Airlines instead of Southwest Airlines), and then received this Southwest Airlines confirmation email with our case number.  That was back on December 30, 2022, and I expected to hear back from Southwest Airlines sometime in January.

On January 4, we did receive 2 emails regarding Southwest Airlines Gesture of Goodwill 25,000 Point Award Codes (which I wrote about here), but we didn’t hear anything about our case number through the end of February.  Since the email below does not have an email address that you can respond to, I submitted another request with Southwest Airlines and asked for a status update on our case.

4 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: JetBlue (60%), Air France / KLM (100%), United (100%) & Air Canada (20%)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 4 offers that end in the next week.  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 the 4 offers that end soon.

Up first, JetBlue is offering up to an 60% bonus, depending on the number of JetBlue TrueBlue Points you purchase.  This offer expires today – February 24.

Forgot Card? Access American Express Centurion Lounges & Capital One Lounges with Phone

Good morning everyone.  Yesterday, my friend told me that there is a way to access American Express Centurion Lounges and Capital One Lounges without having your American Express Platinum Card, American Express Business Platinum Card, or Capital One Venture X Credit Card with you at the airport.  You just need to sign into the American Express app or Capital One app and there is a way to display a QR code to access the lounges.  I never knew this feature existed, so I thought it would be worth sharing in case you ever find yourself at a lounge without your card.  Several years ago, I wrote a similar post for Priority Pass: Access Priority Pass Lounges without your Card (Use Priority Pass App & Apple Wallet).

Access to American Express Centurion Lounges

To get started, download the American Express app (iOS or Android).  Then sign into the app, select your personal or business Platinum card, and then click the Membership button on the bottom.

How to Add (MOST) Chase Credit Cards to ApplePay Wallet Directly from Chase App

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I was talking to my friend last night about adding Chase credit cards to his ApplePay Wallet and he wasn’t aware you could add them to the ApplePay Wallet directly from the Chase app.  So in today’s post, I will show you how to do that.  It appear there are 2 slightly different versions / interfaces of the Chase app, depending if you have both personal and business credit cards in the same login, or if you only have personal credit cards (scroll to the middle of this post to see those steps).

Personal and Business Credit Cards in the Same Login

Sign into the Chase app and click on the credit card you want to add to your ApplePay Wallet.  I selected my Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card.

PSA: ApplePay **DOES NOT WORK** with Chase IHG Rewards Select, Premier, or Business Credit Cards [Partially Resolved]

Updated at 6:15pm PT on 2/6/23: This evening, I was able to add my Chase IHG Select Credit Card and Chase IHG Premier Credit Card to ApplePay, but I was not able to add my Chase IHG Business Credit Card.  My friend is still not able to add either of the personal IHG credit cards.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is off to a great start.  Earlier today, I noticed a great Chase Offer on several Chase credit cards for $5 off a $10 restaurant purchase.  I added the Chase Offer to all my eligible Chase credit cards, including my Chase IHG Select Credit Card (no longer available) and Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card.  I don’t carry all of my credit cards with me, so I planned on adding those 2 Chase IHG credit cards to my ApplePay Wallet.  Unfortunately, after several attempts and after speaking with a few Chase phone reps, I learned that the personal IHG credit cards and the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Business Credit Card do not work on ApplePay.
