American Express is now offering targeted cardholders the opportunity to transfer Membership Rewards points into one of two Avios programs while locking in a 40% transfer bonus. The bonus is valid for transfers to the British Airways Executive Club and Aer Lingus Aer Club (but not Iberia Plus) and will be available for the next six weeks.
In the hubbub of the miles & points world, it can be easy to forget that credit card welcome bonuses aren't the only good way to give your points balances a sudden and often much-needed boost. Upgrade offers can be incredibly useful too, and right now, American Express is targeting select holders of the Amex EveryDay® Card for a valuable upgrade offer that's going to be hard to pass up.
The American Express® Gold Card is a key card in Amex's Membership Rewards ecosystem as it offers the best earning rates out of any American Express card in select major spending categories. It's a card that offers valuable benefits that help cardholders offset the annual fee and as it earns a currency that's transferable to an impressive variety of airline and hotel loyalty programs, it's a card that can help cardholders make significant savings on aspirational travel bookings.
It has been a while since we last saw a debit card that offered holders the chance to earn a valuable rewards currency (the Dodd-Frank Act signed the end of most such cards) but now Amex appears to be resurrecting just such a product with its introduction of a new checking account.
The entry-level Hilton Honors American Express Card 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.
Back in October 2020, Amex expanded its partnership with Uber to give holders of the Platinum Card® from American Express, the American Express® Gold Card, and the American Express® Green Card a free Uber Eats Pass membership as a limited-time benefit. Well, at the end of this month that limited time is up so eligible cardholders have just a few weeks in which to lock in a free 12-month Uber Eats Pass before the opportunity goes away.
There's aren't many credit cards that I consider to be "must-have" cards for any serious miles and points fan but the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express is definitely one of them. This card comes with no annual fee and is one of the more rewarding cards you'll find for spending in non-bonused categories.
The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express is a card that I have, is a card that I hold in high regard and is a card that I think a lot of miles and points fans should be using, and if you don't already hold the Blue Business Plus card in your wallet, a targeted offer that Amex is currently running may be enough to persuade you to add it to your collection.
The Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express is one of the best cash back cards that American Express issues (I could make a strong argument for it being *the* best cash back card from Amex) and today has seen a new version of the card join the American Express portfolio - the Morgan Stanley Blue Cash® Preferred American Express Card.
The Platinum Card® from American Express has seen a few new benefits added this year (in exchange for an increased annual fee) so in this post, I've updated the benefits offered to primary cardholders and I'll show just how many of those benefits (new and old) can be used by any of the authorized users that a cardholder has chosen to add.
