I’m flying standby out of LHR next month and they’re nailing me.
Here you go COVIDiskilingme79
At least there's hardly anyone listed on flights out of there.
reminder for amex plat folks if you aren't getting your $240 a year for digital subscriptions you aren't trying
disney/hulu no ads combo thing is a no brainer for i imagine most the board. before even getting into siriusxm and NYT
Pending a response from my brother, I may be in the market for an Amex plat referral code very soon.
my referrals are only 80k, you should be able to beat that with someone elses or even just applying straight
Just got the referral bonus. I appreciate it!
Yeah looking for the 150k variety. Is that not universal?
Yeah mines only For 80k right now
Hulu and PeacockTV = $5/mo after credit
my business partners was approved. Let me know if you didn’t get the bonus.
Not showing yet but I’ll watch for it.
I pretty much only put big purchases and bills on my credit card and it's always bothered me that I'm losing out on points but I just like using my debit card.
I'm sure this is old news to the thread but Amex apparently has a checking account now that gives rewards. Only catch is it's 1 point for every $2 you spend but I figured why not if I wasn't getting that anyways.
This is my first time using an online only bank. Any drawbacks I'm missing outside of not being able to make change at a bank, which I almost never do?
Getting summer started at the Waldorf tomorrow in Orlando. Thanks Hilton free night certs.
How do I apply the credit?
Go to benefits and activate the digital entertainment credit then just charge things that fit the rules to that card
It’s under membership, rather than offers.
rewards and benefits at top, then benefits, and scroll down to make sure it's enrolled
fuck my life i've had these subscriptions on the card for months and didnt have the benefit turned on. i had to log in using my wife's account to be able to enable. thanks boss.
How long does the flight credit take to post to your account, if it is accepted?
I used my platinum and Hilton aspire to buy a gift card with American and southwest through their website on my phone.
Both statements have closed, yet no credit.
I've had it take a week or two before, but it was for Delta. I don't know how the platinum and aspire work for AA/SW GCs, so may be different.
Day 0: charge is pending
Day 2: charge posts
Day 5: the effect of the credit is visible under "benefits received" tracker or w/e its called. E.g $200 out of $200 used.
Day 7: credit actually posts.
Need a new non-branded card. Currently have Sapphire Preferred and a cap one I have had forever. Also have Hilton and delta amex and a United card. Planning to dump the 2 airlines cards soon. Amex has blocked my previous submissions (last fall) I am assuming to canceling another card. Typically spend about 4k or so a month on a card.
Downgraded my Chase Sapphire Reserve. Was a good run with Chase.
Are you 5/24 because if not, it’s a long road.
Meant mainly with CSR. Might get another or a CSP. Hotel cards have nearly no benefit for me. All I want is delta points and airbnb credits
Fresh back from Centurion SEA...
It's nice but really not as big as it could be IMO. Random Tues afternoon and it still seemed like they could easily benefit from 25 more seats... Along those lines what I've noticed more and more is that while I appreciate the design efforts, they seem to like these small, more intimate seating areas, which makes things feel cramped to me. The bar area has no roof of its own, so the effect is soaring ceiling (thanks to the atrium that the lounge is positioned in) and that's cool! But then there's just cafeteria style seating filling that space up - and that's the only space in the place that feels airy and open, which to me is a bummer. Good amenities, for sure, but I'm still going to be drawn to AS' N lounge just as much due to the size and perceived spaciousness, as long as it's not packed to the gills. Food may be more interesting at Centurion (if they keep up with the chef's menu) but it really isn't *that* much better... AMEX beverage game surely blows everyone else out of the water of course.
Currently in the market for a new credit card. I currently have the CSR, Southwest premier, Delta Amex Gold, and Chase Business Preferred. CSR and Chase Business are the 2 I actually use and then SW card I got for the companion pass and Delta card I've kept open for forever just to not mess with my credit because I buy single family real estate some what frequently.
#1 priority is travel perks, mainly flights. From reading online I think I want to downgrade the CSR to either CSP or Chase Freedom. Then I believe my best option would be Amex Platinum using a referral sign up for 150k points. Anyone have a referral for that? Any other options I should consider? I read all these different articles on this stuff and it ends up confusing me after a while.
Here is a 150k offer:
Wife just got a new job as an MSL. She'll be traveling a decent amount it appears. She will be able to book her hotels, gas, food, etc herself and get reimbursed. The company will do all of her flight bookings however so don't think she will be able to take advantage of that part. She currently has an AMEX Platinum already. What would y'all recommend for this use? Plan is for her to just use this card for business only that way it's easy to keep up with reimbursement.
Is she planning on going for status with a particular hotel chain? Getting a card with them and putting all stays on that would gain big points quickly.
Amex Gold has a 90k sign up bonus now. Their 4x at restaurants is great. Would also be able to combine points with the Platinum. Most of the case $0 annual fee cards will do 3% back restaurants.
I’m trying to think what is best combination of gas/restaurants. Most cards don’t give you great return on hotels unless you book through their portal. And then you don’t gain status/points through that loyalty program.
Yeah idk. This is brand new for her/us. She's never had a job where she traveled before but there will be a decent amount of travel. I wish there were someway we could benefit from the flight booking also but idk that it's an option since the company books the flights. She'll be traveling around SC, NC, GA, AL. Where exactly idk yet. Just trying to think ahead and get something that will give us a good return. In all likelihood. yes she will probably try and use the same hotel chain so long as they're an option these places.
Platinum starts her with gold status for both Hilton and Marriott. I’d also try and pick an airline to stick with. Platinum gets you in sky clubs although the crowding has been already talked about. Not sure where y’all are based but that probably has an impact as well. Then add gold for food and ready to go. Gas is pretty meh now unfortunately
I think he mentioned her already having a platinum and wanting to keep all these work expenses on a separate card.
when flying delta
I mean just wanting to get the best return and if there's a card out there with a nice bonus we/she can work towards too. Idk I haven't kept up very well. The last cards we got were last year when I got a Capital One Venture X and she got the AMEX Platinum. We're in Greenville, SC so nearest large airports are Charlotte (1.5 hours away) and Atlanta (3 hours away).
Let me know if you want a a 90k referral on the Amex Gold. 4x on Restaurants on Groceries, which I use the hell out of. It's got a $250 annual fee, but you get $10 monthly Uber/Uber Eats Credit plus another $10 that's good at a few other places (Shake Shack and I forget what else). I always use the Uber Eats one but rarely the other.
I've already had several referrals from here so I'll give someone else a chance to leave a link if they have the 90k offer, as well.
$10 on wine.com or something if you do their subscription.
I've thought about that
Only have the 60k for that one
Anyone have experience with delta am ex cards? Looking for one with centurion lounge access
delta reserve is your card then
dunno what the public offer is but i have 90k
Amex platinum will get you centurion access too. Any reason why you want the delta card?
Wife and I are contemplating a pretty sizable and somewhat costly patio/retaining wall installation to make our backyard a little more functional. We've got the cash but still would prefer to spread it out some, if at all possible. Is my best bet contacting one of my existing card providers to see if they can give me a 0% deal for some period? Or find a new card with some promo? I carry a Chase Freedom Unlimited, Chase Sapphire Reserve (have been considering downgrading to the Preferred), Discover (my oldest card), and a Citi card that I barely use. Haven't opened a new card since I got the Reserve 5-6 years ago.
You should both open the Chase business 0% cards. They’re offering 90,000 point signup bonus. We had a similar situation with about $6k of plumbing work needing to be done and used those to at least get some points out of it. Putting a new fence in next month and going to do it again.
Chase ink cards and signing up as a Sole Proprietor imo.
I think I'm about to start churning the Ink cards with a lot of big expenses coming. I take it the move right now would be to get this 90k offer since it's expiring in a couple weeks and then go back to the Ink Preferred? Is self referring a thing if I have the Chase Ink Unlimited?
Yeah I was going to share my link but they all seem to be for less than signing up just through the website
