Up until a year ago, the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card was just another co-branded business credit card that offered a good earning rate at Marriott properties and a few good benefits too. Then, in late March 2020, came a small but key policy change that made the Marriott Bonvoy Business Card an invaluable tool for anyone seeking easy Marriott Bonvoy status.
The Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express offers the best rate of cash back out of any card on the market when it comes to spending at US supermarkets and on spending with the major streaming services. Add to that the good cash back rates for spending on transit and at US gas stations and you have one of the best cash back cards around. Ordinarily, this card costs $95/year to hold but right now, you can try it out for free.
I've said in the past that I'm not a big fan of most airline credit cards as I find they're too limiting in what they offer. While an airline's credit card will only earn miles/points in a specific airline's loyalty program, there are dozens of cards out there that are far more flexible and which can earn points that can be transferred to a variety of airline programs.
Accor Hotels took over full ownership of the sbe hotel brands in late 2020 (brands which, among others, include the Delano, Mondrian, SLS, and Redbury brands) so I thought I'd write a quick post to remind holders of the Chase Sapphire cards that their cards give them valuable additional benefits when they stay at select hotels in the sbe portfolio.
It has been a while coming but it now looks as if all Chase business cards can finally be used in Apple, Google, and Samsung Pay digital wallets following an announcement by Chase in the past hour.
Chase issues some of the better credit cards available today so cards like the Freedom Flex Card, the Freedom Unlimited Card, and the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card are in high demand, and that makes it incredibly important for people to understand what may impact their chances of picking one of these cards up.
Like all the major transferable currencies Citi ThankYou points are relatively easy to earn (if you have the right credit cards) and because they can be transferred to an impressive number of airline loyalty programs, they're a key element to most people's miles & points strategy.
Sometimes it can be hard to keep on top of all the various incentives that we've been seeing credit card issuers publish, and I've just been reminded of a limited-time Amex Platinum benefit that I'd completely forgotten about. It's a little embarrassing that I had forgotten about it, but I thought I'd confess and share the details just in case anyone else has been as absent-minded as me.
In this post, I'm going to set out a simple step-by-step guide that will show you how to combine the points earned by either the Chase Freedom Flex Card (review), the Chase Freedom Unlimited Card (review), or the legacy Chase Freedom Card (which is no longer open to new applicants) with points earned by one of Chase's Ultimate Rewards credit cards.
The Ink Business Unlimited Card is a no annual fee card aimed at small businesses looking to maximize their earnings every time they make a purchase. While a number of other business cards offer great earning rates in very specific shopping categories, the Ink Business Unlimited Card's party trick is that it offers a good earning rate regardless of which category a user is shopping in.
