American Express has increased the welcome offers on the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Credit Card and the Hilton Honors American Express Card and while the bonus points on offer haven't changed much, the inclusion of a Free Night Reward in both new welcome offers makes them valuable and makes now a very good time to consider if one of these cards would work well in your wallet.

Earn 5x Marriott free night certificates with the new welcome bonus on this card

Just a few years 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® American Express® Card an invaluable tool for anyone seeking easy Marriott Bonvoy status.

Amex brings back limited-edition Boeing 747 Delta credit cards

Amex has brought back the opportunity for successful new applicants and current holders of two of its Delta co-branded cards to order a special design of their card that not only boasts a unique Boeing 747 design but that that is also made, in part, from two 747s that once flew in Delta's livery.

The ideal 4 card American Express Membership Rewards team [Updated]

In this article, I've narrowed down Amex's card portfolio to the 4 cards which I think make up the best "team" for anyone looking to maximize their Membership Rewards points earnings, and while I'm not one to suggest that someone should choose just one card ecosystem on which to concentrate, if I absolutely had to choose one ecosystem to recommend it would be Amex Membership Rewards.

Comparing the five Marriott Bonvoy consumer credit cards (2024)

Since Amex and Chase both launched new mid-tier Marriott Bonvoy credit cards back in 2022, the number of Bonvoy consumer cards open to new applicants has stood at five. This article compares the annual fees, the earning rates, and the key benefits that these five cards offer in what is an easily digestible format to make it easier to see which Bonvoy card (if any) will work best for you.

6 of the best credit cards for dining, takeout & delivery services

A wide variety of cards offer bonuses or cash back for spending on dining, takeouts, and food delivery services, so I've pulled together a selection of five cards that I think offer some of the best returns available on dining expenditure. With no-annual-fee cards sharing this list with ultra-Premium cards, there should be a card that fits most people's wallets in this selection.

The Hilton Honors American Express Card review (2024)

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 good welcome offer and no annual fee, this can be a great starter card for anyone new to the miles and points game or a great backup card for infrequent visitors to Hilton properties worldwide.

Amex Membership Rewards transfer partners & transfer times [2024 Edition]

Which credit cards are best for overseas everyday spending?

There are increasingly more and more credit cards that don't charge foreign transaction fees when you use them abroad, and that's a trend that has been very good for those of us who like to travel. But when it comes to general everyday spending when you're outside of the US, most of these cards don't offer a great return. So which cards do?

If you hold the Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, now would be a good time to check your targeted offers because you may be sitting on an offer that could earn you a significant number of bonus Membership Rewards points across the next 6 months. The catch is that you have to trigger the offer by February 2nd (although you have 6 months in which to meet the terms of the offer).

Make sure you’re earning easy Amex points through Rakuten

Cash back can be great, but in the miles and points world it's the versatile transferable currencies that rule and that's why Rakuten's partnership with American Express can be a key tool to use in your day-to-day miles and points strategy. If you haven't used Rakuten before or if you haven't set your account up to earn Membership Rewards points, you should probably read on.

The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express Review (2024) – A “must...

There 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.

Reminder: Holders of Amex Platinum cards should select their airline for fee credits

Selecting the airline on which to use the airline fee credit is usually one of the first things that a lot of people do when they get their Platinum card in the mail, but what a lot of people often forget is that you can change the airline on which you use this credit once per year.

The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express review (2024)

With no annual fee, good cash back on key spending categories, and a nice welcome offer that should be easy for most to max out, the card_name is a card that looks tempting right now. Cash back may not be the coolest of rewards that you can get from a credit card, but it's as reliable a reward as you'll find, and when prices of so many things still appear to be rising, reliable is often preferable to cool.

Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express reviewed (2024)

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® Gold Card review (2024)

The American Express® Gold Card is a key card in the Amex 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.

Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card review (2024)

The Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card has long been one of the better co-branded hotel cards on the market thanks to the valuable mid-tier hotel status that it offers alongside a suite of other useful benefits, and for a keen Hilton fan, this is a card that's relatively simple to justify holding.

An Amex upgrade offer I was surprised to see in my account

I tend not to apply for a lot of credit cards every year so without the regular influx of points from juicy welcome offers, I'm always looking for other ways to boost my various account balances. Chase and Citi don't really make things very easy, but American Express has come to my aid on quite a few occasions by offering me a bonus to upgrade one of my cards.

This excellent cash back card continues to charge a $0 annual fee in the...

When it comes to spending at US supermarkets and spending with the major streaming services, the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express offers the best rate of cash back out of any card on the market. 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 without having to pay an annual fee in your first year.

Interesting: Amex removes Frontier as a Platinum Card airline credit option

A number of American Express Platinum Cards offer cardholders an airline fee credit as a way of helping them offset part of their card's annual fee (or, as a way of helping them justify their card's annual fee) but at some point in the past few days, this benefit became a little weaker.

The Platinum Card® from American Express just got improved (slightly)

Quietly and without any fanfare, two slight improvements to two of the benefits offered by the Platinum Card® from American Express have been made. Considering how much publicity Amex normally throws behind "improvements" that don't actually improve the card, it's surprising that more hasn't been made of these changes but, nevertheless, this is genuinely a little bit of good news.

An excellent upgrade offer for select holders of the Amex EveryDay Card

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.

Reminder: Uber Eats Pass benefit ending on Amex Cards

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.

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.

My unexpected but excellent Amex retention offer

American Express has probably done more than any of the other major card issuers to try to keep its cards relevant while the world around us changed beyond recognition, and it has done this by introducing new benefits and new spending offers to help cardholders justify their annual fees. Today, as if that wasn't enough, Amex gave me another reason to hold on to my Platinum Card for another year.

American Express Gold Cards Are Offering Improved Targeted Welcome Offers

The other major credit card companies have been mostly silent.

Last week Amex announced a significant improvement to one of the benefits that come with its $250/year Gold Card when it confirmed that the 4 points/dollar that the card earns on restaurant purchases in the US will be extended to restaurants worldwide.

40% Bonus When You Transfer Amex Points To JetBlue [Targeted]

Some Priority Pass Memberships Just Became A Lot Less Valuable

Most readers with Priority Pass membership will probably have that membership courtesy of a premium credit card which offers membership as one of its benefits and, for the past 12 - 18 months, there has been little to distinguish the Priority Pass memberships the various credit cards offer. That’s about to change.

Is American Express About To Improve Its Green Card?

The Green Card was once (a log time ago) one of the iconic symbols of American Express but, as time has gone by, new cards have been brought to market which offer better benefits, better welcome bonuses and better earning rates so the Green Card has largely been forgotten.

Two Things I Learned From My Amex Platinum Retention Bonus

There Are 5 New Amex Offers For Hilton Brand Rebates [Targeted]

If you hold a credit card or charge card issued by American Express then you have access to one of my favorite benefits - Amex Offers. Amex Offers are a great way of boosting your Membership Rewards balance or saving cold hard cash with selected retailers, hotelier and airlines and I enjoy using them as a way of offsetting any annual fees I have to pay.

Ebates is a very well known cashback site here in the US and, alongside TopCashback, forms an integral part of a lot of people's miles & points strategy - you can earn cashback though these sites while still earning miles and points for bookings with major airlines and hotel chains.  As useful as Ebates has always been the site has just become a whole lot more interesting thanks to a linkup with American Express Membership Rewards.

I Called Amex To Cancel My SPG Card – This Is What Happened

I currently hold the legacy Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Credit card on which I have an offer from Chase to upgrade to the Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card in exchange for 50,000 bonus points (both these cards will soon be rebranded with Marriott Bonvoy names). The Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card offers pretty much exactly the same benefits as my SPG Amex and, as I don't often get to use the free night certificates that come with both cards, I didn't see the value in keeping both cards open.

Here’s How My Platinum Card Retention Call To Amex Worked Out

I don't believe in paying any more for my credit card collection than I absolutely have to so, every time an annual fee becomes due on one of my cards, I go though a process of evaluating exactly what the card offers me, what I've got out of the card in the past year and what I see myself getting out of the card in the future.
