Here’s a fun twist that more airlines and credit card issuers may want to implement.
The Business Platinum Card from American Express released five Amex Offers giving cardholders up to 5X points when using their cards in certain categories. But given that consumer/personal Platinum Card from American Express members receive $30 in monthly PayPal credits through June, are the business flavor’s new promotions enough to satiate members?
But two perks, in particular, made us go “Whoa!” when it came to the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.
So with that in mind, let’s check ’em out — and six more reasons you should get the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.
Delta Air Lines announced yesterday it’s leveraging the SkyMiles loyalty program in order to secure $6.5 billion in funding.
The carrier crated an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary named “SkyMiles IP Ltd., a newly formed Cayman Islands exempted company incorporated with limited liability.” (This might explain why Delta chose the Caymans — in addition to it being a beautiful destination, of course.)
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Kelly Yamanouchi reported the move allows Delta to turn down a CARES Act federal loan. This way, Delta “(avoids) surrendering more control in return for new federal money. It also highlights the airline’s ability to tap capital markets and the continued popularity of credit cards offering frequent flier miles despite a steep drop in air travel.”
Should we worry about SkyMiles?
I was excited to see Chase announced today an increased welcome bonus for their Ink Business Preferred card — a product we praise for its earning structure and relatively low annual fee.
But the new offer packs a bit of a gut punch for many people, especially during such an economically tumultuous time.
A friend shared a rather disturbing story yesterday.
“Someone tried to steal all of my Chase points last weekend,” he said, his eyes wide. “I have over a million [points].”
The annual fee is due for my Delta Reserve American Express card. But I truly couldn’t definitely decide whether or not to keep or cancel it. With upcoming, sweeping changes across the Delta American Express spectrum, I called Amex to see if they had any good retention offers.
Here’s what happened.
