The Green Card offers cardholders two good earnings rates and a couple of useful credits in exchange for a $150 annual fee and from Tuesday next week (15 November 2022), American Express will be improving one of the credits that its Green card offers.
Quietly and without any fanfare, two slight improvements to two of the benefits offered by the Platinum Card® from American Express have been made. Considering how much publicity Amex normally throws behind "improvements" that don't actually improve the card, it's surprising that more hasn't been made of these changes but, nevertheless, this is genuinely a little bit of good news.
A wide variety of cards offer bonuses or cash back for spending on dining, takeouts, and food delivery services, so I've pulled together a selection of five cards that I think offer some of the best returns available on dining expenditure. With no-annual-fee cards sharing this list with ultra-Premium cards, there should be a card that fits most people's wallets in this selection.
The entry-level Hilton Honors American Express Card doesn't get a lot of attention because it's a simple card that doesn't offer any amazing or eye-catching benefits. That, however, doesn't mean this is a card you should ignore. With a good welcome offer and no annual fee, this can be a great starter card for anyone new to the miles and points game or a great backup card for infrequent visitors to Hilton properties worldwide.
American Express has announced that it will be holding its annual 'Member Week' later this month and it has put us on notice that throughout the week, holders of US-issued American Express consumer and small business cards will get access to "unique experiences and special offers totaling access to almost $300 in value".
Last week saw Amex and Chase both launching new mid-tier Marriott Bonvoy credit cards which took the count of currently available Bonvoy consumer cards to five. This article compares the annual fees, the earning rates, and the key benefits that these cards offer in what is (hopefully) an easily digestible format to make it easier to see which card (if any) will work best for you.
Amex has been busy with Bonvoy business today. It has increased the welcome offer on the Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card, it has unveiled the new Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card and as I'm going to discuss here, it has also made some very significant changes to the most premium of Marriott co-branded credit cards - the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant™️ American Express® Card.
American Express has just announced the release of the Marriott Bonvoy Bevy™ American Express® Card which, as was strongly rumored, will sit between the cheaper consumer Bonvoy cards issued by Chase and the considerably more expensive Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card. Read on to see what the new card has to offer.
I'm on the record as saying that I think that the Platinum Card from American Express is the only 'must-have' premium card for most frequent travelers so as that comment was made over a year ago, I thought that I'd take a closer look at what the card offers travelers and Membership Rewards fans in 2021.
With no annual fee, good cash back on key spending categories, and a nice welcome offer that should be easy for most to max out, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express is a card that looks tempting right now. Cash back may not be the coolest of rewards that you can get from a credit card but it's as reliable a reward as you'll find and when prices on most things appear to be rising, reliable is often preferable to cool.
