NEW BENEFIT: Amex adds cell phone protection to key premium cards

American Express has announced that it has enhanced the value offered by a number of its premium cards by adding cell phone protection to the list of benefits that the cards offer. The new benefit is now live and comes with a nice little bonus that most other cell phone protection benefits (those provided by other card issuers) don't offer.

Reminder: Chase Sapphire card holders get added benefits at SBE properties

Accor Hotels took over full ownership of the sbe hotel brands in late 2020 (brands which, among others, include the Delano, Mondrian, SLS, and Redbury brands) so I thought I'd write a quick post to remind holders of the Chase Sapphire cards that their cards give them valuable additional benefits when they stay at select hotels in the sbe portfolio.

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.

LAST CHANCE: Select a carrier for your Amex airline fee credit

Three American Express cards offer cardholders airline fee credits that can go a long way to canceling out the annual fees that these cards charge, but with only two days of January left, time is running out for cardholders to actively choose the airline whose fees they'd like to have rebated.

The Citi Prestige 2021 Travel Credit Is Also Valid For Dining & Groceries

The Citi Prestige Card must be one of the most highly devalued cards of recent years (it’s gone from being a “must-have” card to a card whose existence can, for some, be hard to justify) so it's nice to be able to confirm that the card is bringing back a very useful benefit that we first saw in 2020.

My experience applying for & using the World of Hyatt credit card

As well as giving cardholders a certificate for a free night at any Category 1 - 4 Hyatt property every year (just for holding the card), the World of Hyatt credit card also gives cardholders the opportunity to earn a further free night certificate through spending. Starting next year, Chase is changing the timeframe cardholders are given to earn that second free night. The change isn't bad or majorly significant, but it's a change that for one year only, opens up an opportunity.

Credit Card Strategy: The Cards I Plan To Get Via Upgrades & Product Changes

On Friday I wrote about the three credit cards that I'll be applying for in the coming weeks and months, and I also mentioned that there are two further credit cards that I'd love to add to my portfolio but that I won't be applying for. Instead, I'll be upgrading/product changing two of my existing credit cards and hopefully getting these cards without any pulls on my credit file. This post is about those two cards.

American Express Gold Cards Are Offering Improved Targeted Welcome Offers

Now, however, with the travel world still at a standstill, that travel credit has been expanded to include spending made at grocery stores and on dining.

Why I Still Don’t Like The Chase British Airways Visa Card

Towards the end of last month Chase made a small but noticeable improvement to its British Airways Visa card when it added "taxes and fees" statement credits to the list of benefits the card offers but, having attempted to reassess my negative view on this card, I still can't escape the conclusion that this really isn't a very good credit card at all.

New Targeted Welcome Bonus On The AMEX Business Gold Card (No Lifetime Exclusions)

I’m not sure why, but American Express appears to be very keen for me to apply for one of its Business Cards right now.

More importantly, the offer doesn’t appear to restrict past cardholders from applying or earning the welcome bonus.
