Barclays Wyndham Rewards Credit Card Holder / Platinum Elite Member? Don’t Forget About Your 3,000 Anniversary Points

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!

Keep, Cancel or Convert? Barclays JetBlue Plus Credit Card ($99 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 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…

3 Buy Miles/Points Promos Ending Soon: American (50K Bonus), United (70% Bonus + Sweepstakes Draw) & JetBlue (50% Bonus)

Good evening everyone.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few new offers.  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 buy miles/points promos for American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue that are ending in the next 7 days.  First up, American Airlines is running a promotion where you can get up to 50,000 bonus miles, depending on the number of American Airlines AAdvantage Miles you purchase.  This offer ends on January 31.

Stacking American Express Hilton Aspire Credit Card $250 Resort Credit & DoubleTree AMEX Offer ($45 Off $225)

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:

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.
