I love the main transferable currencies because they help to insulate me from devaluations by individual hotel & airline loyalty programs but after just having reviewed my credit card portfolio, I've decided that I'm paying at least one annual fee that I don't need to be paying and that I need to rethink my transferable currency strategy.
The Amex offers that every cardholder has access to can be a great way to save some money and to recoup some of the annual fees you may have paid and right now Amex is offering a number of deals for Hilton bookings through to the end of March.
One of the many benefits that come with the Platinum Card from American Express and the Business Platinum Card from American Express is a statement credit for airline fees charged to the cards and, once a year, cardholders get to choose which airline they wish to nominate as the airline whose fees they'd like to see rebated. Now is that time of year.
The Business Platinum Card from American Express has been offering an impressive 100,000 point welcome bonus since the beginning of September but Amex will be pulling the deal at the end of today leaving you just hours to make the most of this offer before it goes away.
When it comes to the credit cards that I choose hold I like to keep things simple - I want my credit card spending to earn me as many points as possible without falling into the trap of paying excessive annual fees all while keeping a balanced portfolio of currencies to protect myself from an unexpected devaluation.
Just in time for Black Friday/Cyber Monday American Express is targetting cardholders for bonus Membership Rewards points on Amazon purchases through the end of the year. The number of bonus points you can earn is capped but this should still be a very nice effective rebate on top of whatever deals Amazon is offering.
Right now there are at least five good Hilton Amex offers available to targeted cardholders and with the holiday season rapidly approaching (a time when a lot of people take trips) and four of the five deals expiring at the end of the year, I thought I'd remind readers of what these offers look like.
The American Express Green Card has been the forgotten card in Amex's portfolio for a very long time but on 24 October 2019 American Express did what quite a few of us suspected it was gearing up do - it relaunched its iconic Green Card with a host of new earning rates and benefits... but is the revamped card any good?
While new Rakuten members have been able to elect to earn Membership Rewards points since February this year it's only now that existing members have the option to earn Amex's valuable currency too, so here are the seven steps you need to take if you want to ensure that all your future Rakuten/eBates earnings are paid out in the form of Membership Rewards Points.
Following on from its great offers on Air France and ANA flights American Express is back with another big offer a little closer to home with targeted cardholders able to earn 20,000 Membership Rewards Points for bookings made with Air Canada.
