Posts That Caught My Eye
It’s nice to see someone actually get a retention offer on this card. Perhaps with the tightening of approvals, Chase is working hard on the retention side. Either way, he made the right choice and took the points and then downgraded to Freedom!
It’s not often I link to TBB (normally it is the other way around), but this is definitely worth reading. He has a good understanding of what is going in Greece and an interesting perspective given his ties in the region and the fact that he just returned after spending a couple of weeks there.
A great idea and a good reminder that a lot of us have points expiring soon from that slot machine game 18 months ago. I reached out via Twitter. Hopefully I will hear back soon with good news.
This will take a little effort, but for those who really want automation, this is probably the only way to do it after the shutdown of SyncAssist.
Credit Card Updates
- Chase and Marriott came out with an updated 80,000 point bonus on their Marriott Rewards Premier card. This seems like a good deal on the surface, but pay close attention. The older 70,000 point offer has the annual fee waived the first year & it comes with a free night in a category 1-4 property on approval. This new offer makes you pay the annual fee and no free night. Boo.
- US Bank is offering $15 when you sign up for Visa Checkout and enroll your US Bank Visa card before August 15, 2015. To get the credit sign up through this link and then enroll your card. There is no need to make a purchase. HT: Doctor of Credit
- Top Cashback is paying 2.25% on Amex Gift Cards today. This is a good deal for those who can easily liquidate these cards, but that is sometimes easier said than done.
- Virgin America is having an 8 hour sale (ends at 4:59PM PT) with fares as low $38 each way for travel September 9, 2015 through February 15, 2016. You can check the routes available here, but Ebates, Top Cashback and BeFrugal are all paying $5, so start at one of those portals when making your purchase.
