What's New?

I will attempt to list all new additions and changes on this web site here for at least the last three months or so. (But no guarantee that I won't forget to list a few.) So go ahead and use your miles to take that three month trip around the world. You can catch up when you return. (Well, at least some of the offers will still be around.)

To easily find an offer on the indicated page, go to that page, click anywhere on it once (important), then do a word search on an obvious key word for the item.

With a hub at Casablanca, this airline will give American, British Air, and its other Oneworld partners more access to destinations in Morocco and Africa. Royal Air Maroc currently flies between Casablanca and four U.S. destinations: Boston, Miami, New York JFK and Washington Dulles.
I highly recommend a visit to Morocco. I got there via AirFrance/KLM with a nice 5 day stopover in Paris using Delta miles, and returned via Iberia Air and American Airlines with a stopover in Madrid, using AA miles.

1/12/2020 Finance Pay taxes via credit card 2020 edition. For years I have been making a small profit by making my federal payments on my 2% cash back cards via Pay1040. Note also that this also delays actually having to pay the money until the credit card balance comes due. So until that date I get to store the money in a interesting bearing money market account - currently PNC and Sallie May Banks.

1/10/2019 Finance The Bask Bank offer of American Airlines miles for deposits I told you about was quite successful for me. I deposited $1,000 on December 9, 2019. and did the feedback. The 1,000 miles for the feedback posted on December 11. The 5,000 miles bonus posted on January 8, 2020. 73 miles posted on January 3, 2020, thus showing that they do indeed post miles monthly. So I intend to keep $20 in the account, generating at least 1 mile/month,thus easily keeping my AA account active. (Last I looked, that account requires at least one activity every 18 months to avoid losing all the miles in it.) The offer is still available through February 29, 2020.
1/8/2020 Credit Cards Several usually reliable bloggers say that the Capital One Spark Miles for Business credit card offer will end January 27. But it may be that only his commissions will end on that date. We shall see. If you own a business that can spend $55,000 on a credit card in 6 months and will fly on JetBlue or a choice of many foreign airlines, this is a very interesting deal. It also might be useful if you can spend only $5,000 in 3 months. They also say that the up to $2,000 bonus for the Spark Cash for Business card will end on that date.

I revamped my description of the Hawaiian Airlines credit card offers Note that the 60,000 miles Barclays with the annual fee waived the first year can give you a trip to Hawaii and more for only the opportunity cost of the bonus miles (about $40).

1/2/2020 Credit Cards I expanded my write-up of the Capital One Spark Miles for Business credit card. If you own a business that can spend $55,000 on a credit card in 6 months and will fly on JetBlue or a choice of many foreign airlines, this is a very interesting deal. It also might be useful if you can spend only $5,000 in 3 months.

The Cathay Pacific credit card bonus was changed to a straight 40,000 miles. The 1.5 Asia Miles per $1 spent on purchases outside of the US, with no foreign transaction fees, makes this card interesting for folks who frequently travel in foreign countries.

12/29/2019 Credit Cards Another kind reader pointed out that the Barclay Aviation business card offers 5% AAdvantage® mileage bonus earned every year after your account anniversary date based on the total number of miles earned using your card. Not sure, but I interpret that to mean you get the bonus only on the miles earned starting with the second year. My previous post was different, either because the offer changed or I had it wrong in the first place. You guys are great!

I decided not to take the offer of buying a package after a 15 minute call and the agent confirmed the 5,000 Points for the listen. After four weeks of non posting in my Hilton HHonors account I called and spoke with Stephanie, and she checked with the promotion department and then told me only 500 points were part of that promo for just listening and 5000 for purchasing. Sounds like a bait and switch to me."

10/31/2019 Credit Cards I list my second card offering 5% cash back for gasoline - the Ducks Unlimited Visa card. Compare to the other one - the Sam's Club Mastercard. At $4/gallon, that's 20 cents/gallon, which is usually more that even the extra charge some gasoline stations charge for credit card purchases.

Free loan plus miles: This article on Credit Cards With 0% APR & No Balance Transfer Fees caused me to look again at the Amex EveryDay® Credit Card. In the old days, when interest rates on bank savings account were quite high and usually there was no fee for transferring balances to 0% interest cards, sometimes earning miles or points for doing so, we made good money taking advantage of all of this. Today most of those opportunities are gone, and the few remaining don't earn much money anyway due to low interest rates on those bank accounts. But the Amex EveryDay® Credit Card still offers balance transfers to it with no fee when they are requested within 60 days of account opening, and 0% interest rate on and balance transfers for 15 months. It also offers 15,000 Membership Rewards® (maybe 20K or 25K) after you use your new Card to make $1,500 in purchases in your first 3 months - more if the points offer is higher. Those points transfer to lots of airlines, including Delta, 1,000:1/1,000. So here is how to play this profitably:

  • Put large purchases on another miles or points earning card. Enjoy what you get for this.
  • Transfer those charges to the Amex EveryDay® Credit Card within 60 days of account opening. Allow a few days for that to post. Enjoy the 0% interest for 15 months.
  • Make the minimum purchases on the card in the first three months. Remember that it is the date of posting that counts, not the date of purchase. The former often takes several days after the later. Enjoy the 0% interest on those purchases.
  • Remember that there will be a minimum payment due each month, usually 4%. (Ask) Always pay at least $1 more that the required minimum. This helps with your credit score. I would put the amount of the remaining balance in a good money market account with the ability to withdraw 6 times/statement period, then make the payments from that account. I use PNC Bank (currently paying 1.98%/2% and Sally May Bank (currently 1.83%). There are others with better rates. In the old days I would compute the amount that would finally be due and put that amount in a CD at my local savings and loan, where I could negotiate a good rate with the specific date I would need the money (a few days before the final payment was due).
I can now refer you to a 15,000 Membership Rewards points offer for the no annual fee American Express Blue Business® Plus Credit Card. Also, it offers 0% introductory APR for 12 months on purchases.
