How to Transfer IHG Points for Free to Other Accounts (Only for Diamond Elite & Business Rewards Members)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Valentine’s Day!  I started working on this post about 2 months ago, but totally forgot to finish.  Stephen at Frequent Miler wrote a post about transferring IHG points for free to other IHG members, but only if the member sending the IHG points was an IHG Diamond Elite Member or if they were an IHG Business Rewards Member.  Laura and I are both IHG Platinum Elite Members (thanks to having the Chase IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card), but Laura was able to become an IHG Business Rewards Member easily online (I have been an IHG Business Rewards Member for at least a year).

To get started, she signed into her IHG online account and went through the process to become an IHG Business Rewards Member.  Continue reading to learn more about transferring IHG points to another member and how long the points transfer took.

I Finally Got A Bilt Credit Card (Application Process, Earning & Redeeming Strategy, and Unboxing)

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  The Bilt Credit Card has been around for a few years, but I never thought the card was for me.  I haven’t paid rent since 2017 and earning 3x on dining, 2x on travel, and 1x everywhere else didn’t excite me.  That was until I read Frequent Miler’s post: How Nick built his own Bilt bonus. I finally understood that I could use the Bilt Credit Card without paying rent and still get excellent value from the card.  I will explain my earning and redeeming strategy below.  But first, let’s go through the application process.  Here is the front and back of my shiny new Bilt Credit Card.  The card has a very premium look and feel to it, but has no annual fee.

My Easy Experience with the $10 Resy Credit on my American Express Delta Platinum Business Card

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few days ago, I was in Daytona Beach, Florida, when the news broke about the changes to the Delta credit cards (read Frequent Miler’s post about the changes).  I currently have the American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card and was excited about the new benefits.  In this post, I will talk about the new $120 Resy Credit and my experience using the Resy credit.

First things first, you need to log into your American Express online account, go to the Benefits tab, and enroll in the $120 Resy Credit.  While you are there, you should also enroll in the $120 Rideshare Credit too.

Welcome Back TWG Subscribers – I Fixed My Newsletter!

Good evening everyone, I hope your week is going well.  A few days ago, I noticed that my newsletters were not being sent out to subscribers.  After doing some digging, I found out that the last 2 newsletter emails that went out were on November 3 and December 19.  I’m not sure what happened to the newsletters for all of the other days :/

I fixed the issue, so my newsletters should be scheduled to go out at 5pm PT every day that I have a new post.  Scroll to the bottom of the post to see a list of all the blog posts you may have missed if you haven’t visited my site in the last few months.

Use AMEX Business Platinum $360 Indeed Credit on Resume Help, Career Coaching, Pay Negotiation & Interview Prep ($35 – $95)

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I was reading Frequent Miler’s post about Amex Business Platinum benefits scheduled to end 12/31/24 and learned that the $360 Indeed Benefit from the American Express Business Platinum Card could be used toward Indeed Career Services, not just for employers looking to hire new employees.  Thanks to bullmeister in the FM comments for the heads up. I went down the rabbit hole and learned that Indeed has several career services, such as Resume Help, Career Coaching, Pay Negotiation & Interview Prep that range in price from $35 to $95.  Theoretically, you could pay for 2 services ($35 + $55 = $90) to use up the $90 quarterly credit.  I’m happily employed and not looking to switch careers anytime soon, but these services (free after using the Indeed Credit) could be useful for others.  Read on to learn more.

To get started, you will need to sign into your American Express online account, go to the Indeed Benefit, and enroll in the Business Platinum Indeed Benefit.
