Problem Solved! I Have 100 Amex Offers For Each Of My Cards

Amex OffersYesterday I wrote about how it was strange that neither of my American Express cards had any Amex Offers.

Using the live chat feature didn’t give me any answers other than to call a customer care number for support (which I’ve yet to do).

What Did We Book With Our Hyatt Free Nights?

hyattA couple of years back Kim and I got the Hyatt credit card. At the time, the signup bonus came with two free nights at any Hyatt property in the world.

Marriott RewardsAnniversary free nights from credit cards can be a bit of a pain for a couple of reasons. First of all, you want to make sure that you’re getting a better value than theĀ  cost of the annual fee.

I recently shared where we are staying with our IHG Anniversary Free Night. Then AwardWallet informed me that my Marriott Rewards Anniversary Free Night was expiring in less than 3 months. Continue reading Where Are We Staying With My Marriott Rewards Anniversary Free Night

Would You Add An Authorized User To Your Credit Card For This Offer?

I just received an offer to add an authorized user to my JetBlue Plus Card. Continue reading Would You Add An Authorized User To Your Credit Card For This Offer?
