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.

5 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.

American Express ‘Member Week’ is coming (with statement credits)

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". 

Comparing the five Marriott Bonvoy consumer credit cards (2023)

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.

Amex launches the Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card (why?)

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.

The Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express review (2023)

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 Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express 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 on most things appear to be rising, reliable is often preferable to cool.

Amex UK improves its British Airways Companion Voucher (2-4-1)

It looks like American Express is starting to feel the pressure from the recently introduced UK Barclaycard Avios cards because it has just announced an unexpected improvement to the Companion Vouchers offered by its British Airways co-branded cards in the UK.

Amex is offering a 40% bonus for transfers to Avios [Targeted]

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.

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.
