Earlier this year, we found out how strong a partnership American Express and Hilton have when we saw Amex effectively fund Hilton's cashflows and the pandemic brought trael to a standstill, and now we're getting a further look at just how close the two are as American Express launches targeted offers for 10 (yes, ten!) of Hilton's brands.
American Express is targeting cardholders with a new offer for savings at Enterprise rent-a-car for vehicle rentals made through the end of the year. The offer applies to reservations made at locations within the United States (and US Territories) but considering how few people are flying right now that's probably not going to be a big issue.
To get the most out of a miles or points balance takes work and often quite a bit of effort. People with busy lives and families to look after generally don't have the time or energy to deal with all of that and this a big reason why cash back credit cards are so incredibly popular and why the Blue Cash Preferred Card is a card that would work well in most wallets.
American Express has updated the welcome bonuses on four of the Delta SkyMiles credit cards that it issues and has announced that the new offers are only going to be available through 28 October. Two personal and two business cards are seeing changes made to their welcome offers so now may be the time to consider one of these cards if Delta is your airline of choice.
Global Entry is the US CBP program that is open to US citizens, legal residents of the US, and citizens of select nations around the world. The program gives members expedited entry into the United States via kiosks stationed at major points of entry and removes the need for passengers to stand in seemingly endless immigration lines as they wait to enter the country.
A couple of weeks ago Chase announced that it's longstanding Chase Freedom credit card would be replaced by a new card with better earnings and better benefits too. That new card is the Chase Freedom Flex credit card and it's now live online and applications and product changes are now being accepted.
Hotels.com is a site that I frequently suggest most people should be using a lot more and in combination with Wells Fargo, it has just unveiled its first co-branded credit card - the Hotels.com Rewards Visa Card. With no annual fee, no foreign transaction fees, and a useful first-year benefit this is a card that may have its uses.
If you're planning of flying with Southwest once this crisis is over and you have your eye on the reduced status and Companion Pass targets that were announced earlier this year, the fact that Chase is offering 65,000 points as a welcome offer on all three of its personal credit card may be of interest.
As we move into the final few months of 2020 (this year really can't end soon enough!), Chase has revealed the 4Q 2020 category spending bonuses for the legacy Chase Freedom credit card and the credit card that's taking its place - the Chase Freedom Flex credit card.
American Express has loaded three new hotel offers to targeted cardholder accounts this morning and with all three offers valid through at least the end of the year, there's plenty of time to make the most of them. These offers come on top of the offers we've recently seen for stays at select IHG properties (see here and here), Hyatt properties (see here), and Best Western Properties (see here).
