My Experience with the American Express Gold Card $100 Airline Fee Credit

Good afternoon everyone.  As part of my March App-O-Rama, I was approved for the American Express Gold Card.  A few weeks ago, I wrote How to Enroll in American Express Gold Card Benefits ($120 Dining Credit & $100 Airline Fee Credit).  In that post, I showed how to enroll in the $100 airline fee credit benefit.  The process was very easy.  I selected Southwest Airlines as my airline of choice and purchased a $100 Southwest Airlines eGC to trigger the $100 airline fee credit.  Unfortunately, my $100 purchase did not trigger the benefit.

Keep, Cancel or Convert? American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card ($450 Annual Fee)

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 credit card drawer).  In today’s post, I will share my thoughts regarding my American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card.  I was reviewing my recent credit card statement and spotted a reference to the annual fee (it was very subtle and is probably overlooked by most people).  I decided to check out page 4…

Stack Grubhub $10 First Purchase Bonus with American Express Gold Card $10 Dining Credit

Good afternoon everyone.  Earlier today, I wrote How to Enroll in American Express Gold Card Benefits ($120 Dining Credit & $100 Airline Fee Credit).  In that post, I said that I used the $10 monthly Dining Credit for Grubhub.  Grubhub is a food delivery service that will deliver food to you (for a fee) or you can pick up your food (without a fee).  I decided to sign up for Grubhub and use my American Express Gold Card (my referral link) to get the $10 Dining Credit.  Grubhub recently joined Ebates / Rakuten, but only in their app.  As you can see, when I search Ebates / Rakuten on my PC for Grubhub, nothing shows up…

But when I use the Ebates / Rakuten app, I can see Grubhub.  If you are not an Ebates / Rakuten member, you can create a free Rakuten account here (my referral link).  After you join Rakuten, download the app (iOS or Android) and go to the Grubhub page.  If you are a new Grubhub user (like I was), you can earn $10 cash back on your first order.  If you are a repeat Grubhub user, you only get 1% cash back.
