Vente-Privee: Amex cardmembers get $25 statement credit

***This is not travel related but seems like a deal worthy of mentioning…

Vente-Privee is a joint venture between subsidiaries of American Express and Each day the site runs sales of up to 70% off in categories like fashion and homewares to sporting goods and electronics.

By signing up for an account, American Express Cardmembers can receive a $25 statement credit with first purchase of $50 or more when using a qualifying Amex card.

I’ve checked the site a few times and none of the sale have been of any interest but for that kind of offer I am going to try to check back each day to see what else gets added.

AirTran A+Rewards Partnership with Membership Rewards Ending

The point transfer relationship between Amex Membership Rewards and AirTran is ending on 2/29/12.

Transfers are:
1,500 Membership Rewards points = one A+ Rewards credit
24,000 Membership Rewards points= 16 A+ Rewards credits, enough for a roundtrip coach ticket.

I am not a fan of AirTran and have only flown with them one time. They would not be my choice of where to transfer my  Membership Rewards points. I’ve transferred my points to Continental/ United in the past. I feel this is a much better option offering lots of more places to fly.
Since Continental/ United isn’t a current transfer option, I would probably consider sending my points to Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue or Delta in the future.
