American Express has announced that it will be holding its annual 'Member Week' later this month and it has put us on notice that throughout the week, holders of US-issued American Express consumer and small business cards will get access to "unique experiences and special offers totaling access to almost $300 in value".
The Blue Business Plus® credit card from American Express is my go-to card for a lot of my non-bonused purchases because of the 2 points/dollar that it offers me on the first $50,000 of spending that I put on the card every year (terms apply) and right now, targeted cardholders can lock in a very nice deal when they refer the card to someone who is subsequently approved.
American Express continues to offer two good welcome bonuses on two of the best cash back cards that it issues - the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express (review) and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express (review) - and as it's currently giving new applicants 6 months (instead of 3) in which to lock in these offers, these cards are worth a closer look.
Last week saw Amex and Chase both launching new mid-tier Marriott Bonvoy credit cards which took the count of currently available Bonvoy consumer cards to five. This article compares the annual fees, the earning rates, and the key benefits that these cards offer in what is (hopefully) an easily digestible format to make it easier to see which card (if any) will work best for you.
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.
Amex has been busy with Bonvoy business today. It has increased the welcome offer on the Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card, it has unveiled the new Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card and as I'm going to discuss here, it has also made some very significant changes to the most premium of Marriott co-branded credit cards - the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™️ American Express® Card.
American Express has just announced the release of the Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card which, as was strongly rumored, will sit between the cheaper consumer Bonvoy cards issued by Chase and the considerably more expensive Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card. Read on to see what the new card has to offer.
American Express has refreshed the Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card and the refresh sees the card improving in three separate ways as well as being given a boosted (limited-time) welcome offer that looks very attractive.
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.
American Express has unveiled a refreshed version of the Blue Cash Everyday® Card which sees the card getting a new look, introducing statement credits, increasing the cash back that it earns in one shopping category, adding a new bonus category, and removing a bonus category. Importantly, the card's good earning rate at US supermarkets remains unaffected.
