The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card From American Express is a favorite card of mine and it's a card that rarely leaves my wallet. Now and a little unusually, this card is awarding new cardholders a 15,000 point welcome bonus when they meet a set spending target in the first three months of card membership at that just makes an already great card even better.
I've been taking a considerably more upfront approach to how I handle calls to a bank's retention agents after I very nearly had one of the best cards that I hold accidentally closed down in July last year. Fortunately, an abundance of honesty on these calls doesn't appear to be doing me any harm as I'm still getting some reasonable deals when I ask if any retention offers are available.
A little surprisingly, Capital One has given us early notice that it will be offering holders of four of its credit cards a bonus when they transfer points across to the British Airways Executive Club. Anyone considering converting their Venture Miles into British Airways Avios should hold tight for a few weeks as the transfer ratio being offered is about to get noticeably better.
Citi’s ThankYou Points can be incredibly useful in certain situations but up until now I have found them to be less useful than the points issued by Amex and Chase. Now, however, courtesy of a very surprising program enhancement (of the good kind!) Citi’s ThankYou points have suddenly been made considerably more useful…albeit for a limited time only.
The Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card has just had its welcome offer refreshed and the new bonus being offered is an incredible 100,000 points - That's double what the card was offering up until now. With Chase introducing its fantastic Freedom Flex card just a week ago and also improving the value proposition of its Freedom Unlimited credit card, it looks as if Capital One has suddenly realised that it needs to respond.
The entry-level Hilton Honors Credit Card from American Express doesn't get a lot of attention because it's a simple card that doesn't offer any amazing or eye-catching benefits. That, however, doesn't mean this is a card you should ignore. With a great welcome offer and no annual fee, this can be a fantastic starter card for anyone new to the miles and points game or a great backup card for infrequent visitors to Hilton properties worldwide.
American Express has announced new spending bonuses aimed at holders of the two consumer Marriott Bonvoy cards that it curates. The bonuses on offer are already live and relate to spending made through 15 September 2021.
Yesterday, we saw what appears to be an accidental leak from Chase which suggests that we'll soon be seeing some major changes to the Chase Sapphire Cards. The changes that may be coming to the Sapphire Reserve Card don't look particularly exciting but if what has been leaked is true, right now may the best time to apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card.
A couple of keen-eyed Reddit users have discovered what appear to be new Ultimate Rewards agreements for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card. Assuming that the contents of these documents are genuine, we could soon see Chase announce some big changes to their two fee-bearing consumer Ultimate Rewards Cards.
The Freedom Flex credit card is one of the newest cards to be added to Chase's credit card lineup (it launched in September 2020) and it's already one of the most important miles & points credit cards on the market. With no annual fee, great earning rates, and excellent benefits, this is a card that would fit very well with most people's wallets.
