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. A few weeks after targeting me for a special offer on its Platinum Business Card the card issuer has now targeted me for a special offer on its Business Gold card (the Platinum Card offer is still showing in my account). More importantly, the offer doesn’t appear to restrict past cardholders from applying or earning the sign-up bonus.
Chase and IHG appear to be making an extra effort to push the IHG Rewards Premier credit card right now as, not only have old IHG Rewards credit card holders been receiving upgrade offers, Chase has also launched a huge sign-up offer for new applicants. Still, amongst all the excitement that the new sign-up offer has generated, I’d like to urge caution – this isn’t just a case of an amazing sign-up offer that everyone should jump on.
American Express has been offering a cashback + bonus miles sign-up deal on two of its co-branded Delta credit cards over the past few weeks and, with under 48 hours to go before the offer expires, I thought I’d highlight the options that are currently available for anyone who may not have seen them.
I’ve held a Chase/Marriott co-branded credit card for years, and when Chase refreshed its Marriott credit card offering my card (the Marriott Rewards Premier card) was closed to new applicants and renamed the Marriott Bonvoy Premier Card. Chase also released the new Marriott Bonvoy Boundless credit card.
Over the past few days and weeks American Express has been targeting a significant number of its cardholders for some really great offers (like the 16,000 Membership Rewards points offer with Fine Hotels and Resorts that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago), so I thought I’d highlight seven offers which can all be a great way to boost a Membership Rewards balance.
I only hold one Chase Business credit card but if you were expecting me to tell you that it the card I’m writing about in this post you’d be wrong – I hold the Chase Ink Bold credit card which is no longer open to new applicants.
Right now AMEX is offering targeted cardholders two very good deals when they book a stay with Peninsula Hotels by the end of November 2019.
American Express Membership Rewards has launched a great targeted transfer offer for cardholders looking to boost their Avios balances in the British Airways Executive Club, Aer Lingus Aer Club, and Iberia Plus...and something which may be a glitch (or a nice new option) looks very interesting too.
While AMEX likes to say that people can only earn a given card’s sign-up bonus once in a lifetime, it is also known to occasionally remove that restriction and make a card’s sign-up bonus open to everyone…regardless of any past history they may have with the card. Right now, American Express is targeting select cardholders for a 75,000 point sign-up bonus on its Platinum Business Card and the offer terms look pretty favorable.
