Marriott Unexpected Bonus

Apply for Barclaycard(R) Arrival World MasterCard(R) - Annual Fee

The Marriott hotel brand is one of my favorite and is my go to hotel brand while traveling. I don’t know if I actually like the Marriott’s better than say Hyatt, SPG or the Hilton Family, but in my line of work, it seems that my company has always preferred the Marriott family to any other, therefore I’ve grown accustom the brand and I am quite happy with it. (Although I honestly think I just love the concierge lounge access after just 50 nights a year) Each quarter Marriott ...

Barclay Bank has been busy in the United States trying to win over card holders from Chase and American Express and in doing so have introduced a number of airline credit card and rewards cards.

Update: Offer Expired

One of my favorite parts of flying is lounge access. It doesn’t matter how far I’m flying, spending a few minutes in the airline lounge is a nice way to begin or end a journey which always provides a comfortable place to relax between flights. Not to mention, during irregular operations the club agents seem to be able to do more for club members quicker than anyone else. The club provides not only a place to relax, but a service that is extremely ...

Free Platinum Status On American Airlines

Apply for The US Airways Premier World MasterCard(R)

This morning I woke up to a lovely email from American Airlines telling me that I deserved FREE Platinum status! This year I have flown about 25,000 EQM since January and have already attained Gold status through 2014. Yet now, with this promotion I am being bumped to Platinum status. This is amazing since last year I only flew 16,000 EQM on AA and should truly have NO status. But thankfully, AA does not just drop Elite members, therefore I’m ...

3 Reasons To Stop Flying Delta in 2013

506515_Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN - 50K Offer

Delta Airlines has been my go to airline ever since the merger with NWA. However, since the demise of WorldPerks and the continual devaluation of SkyMiles, now known as Skypesos, I have officially decided that no matter how much I might like Delta's on board offerings, crew, or route map, it’s time to find a new airline to be loyal to.

Since the merger with NWA, I have witnessed a number of perks stripped away from the Worldperk program as the two programs merged. In addition, ...

My CrossOver Rewards Have Posted!

spg2

Delta Airline SkyMiles program is FAR from perfect and has some of the WORST redemption availability in the industry (Yet I still find amazing use for my Skymiles). In addition, the recent MQD requirement is such a devaluation of the program, words alone cannot describe my anger and annoyance at Delta Airlines. In Fact, my annoyance is so grand that I’ve moved most of my flying over to American Airlines this year and I’ve burned almost every Skymile I have in my account. Despite ...
