American Express


Ridesharing’s popularity continues to grow — and banks know travel-savvy cardholders want to be well rewarded for Uber and Lyft purchases.

We’ve certainly seen a marked increase not only in travel and transit categories but some boosts to general cashback cards, as well.

The busy holiday season means airport rides and holiday celebrations — a perfect time to use rideshare! So with that, here are our picks for the best credit cards to use on your rideshare purchases!

Today’s the last day to apply for the Delta American Express cards’ special, increased welcome bonuses — and lock in a full year of their current annual fees.

It seems like just yesterday the deals were announced and we said, “You have until October 30 to apply!” Well, the 30th is already here — and hours are ticking away until Amex pulls the offers.

On that note, Amex has been known to end promotions at random times. We’ve seen deals disappear late night, afternoon, and even late morning.

So now’s the time to apply.

Complimentary first class upgrades are a major reason people pursue airline elite status. Delta knows this — and gives members of its co-branded American Express cards improved chances of sitting up front.

As René wrote yesterday, 20×2020 is in full effect. So if first class upgrades are important to you, here’s how Delta Amexes play such a vital role scooting you up the upgrade list.

A Delta Million Miler brag tag on baggage.

Achieving Million Miler status is a pretty big accomplishment. Each time you accrue a million miles on an airline, the carrier gives you a gift of some sort.

Delta gives you annual Silver at 1M or Gold status at 2M & 3M or Platinum at 4M (depending on how many millions of miles you’ve earned) and some luggage or jewelry.

United, meanwhile, steps it up. While UA may not give you premium luggage or shiny bracelets, they gift both you and a companion annual elite status. American gives you miles and upgrades.

Nice, right?

Is it time for once Delta copy United and American — and up their Million Miler game?
