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.)

Sierra Club is very special to me. I led backpacking (usually off trail) and hiking trips for it for many years, and met my life mate through one of its chapter singles activity sections. I was an early chair for that section.

Amtrak points can be transferred 2:1 to Hilton or Choice Hotels, and 1,000:1,000 to Audience Rewards. (Via Frequent Miler)

Why you should transfer Amex points to British Airways, not Iberia

2/7/2020 Credit Cards The Aer Lingus and Iberia credit card offers are now the same as the British Airways offer for 50,000 or 100,000 Avios each. Remember that the Avios from each airline can be combined into one account for one of them. Avios are especially useful for very cheap shorthual flights in the U.S. and elsewhere on partner airlines. For example, I received a ticket from Buenos Aires to Iguasu on Lan Airlines for 7,500 Avios. American Airlines is a One World partner of all three ailines, so similar shorthaul tickets can be found in the U.S.

Chase increased the bonus for the Southwest Airlines Business Performance Visa credit card to 70,000 points when you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months, plus an additional 30,000 points after you spend $25,000 total on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening. Compare to the other less expensive Southwest Airlines cards.

2/7/2020 Buying Stuff Alaska, American, and United Airlines shopping portal bonuses: 400 miles for spending $200 by February 16 or 17, 2020. If you prefer miles from other airlines, I would wait a few days to see what the competition offers.
2/6/2020 Finance I can confirm that the Bask Bank deal provides a great way to simply maintain American Airlines miles accounts. After receiving the 6,000 miles of bonuses, I kept $20 in the account. On February 4 they credited my AA account with 34 miles. I believe that this is partially due to the $1,000 for the bonuses still being in my account through part of January, and partially for the $20. I think the $20 will generate 1 mile/month and occasionally 2. Last I looked, AA miles expire after 18 months of inactivity. So I no longer have to be concerned about that.
Bask Bank offers American Airlines miles for deposits. There is a fairly easy 6,000 miles available, then 1 mile/$1 deposited and held, plus more for additional deposits. The offer is scheduled to expire February 29, 2020. Read all about it here.
2/5/2020 Credit Cards The Bank of Hawaii Hawaiian Airlines credit card offer now seems to be the same 60K as that of Barclays. It says that it is offered through Barclays, so you may not be able to get both offers. But please let me know if you did so. Thanks. Both cards waive the annual fee the first year. There is also a $99 annual fee (not waived the first year) business card for another 60K or 70k miles and up 40,000 more miles when you meet certain spend requirements. You should be able to get both card. You may read about all this here.
The Hawaiian Airlines miles program is becoming quite interesting. It is growing. Last I looked 35,000 miles gets you a round trip ticket to Hawaii from North America West Coast, and 52,500 from the East Coast. Through it and its partners, they can get you to Asia, New Zealand and Australia, and to Pago Pago and Papeete. Interisland flights go for as low as 7,500 miles. Flights from Hawaii to/from Japan, Korea, Australia, and New Zealand go for as low as 35,000 miles, and from Hawaii to/from Pago Pago and Papeete for as low as 24,750. It could be a good idea to start accumulating miles there. You can keep them alive by doing an occasional survey from Opinions Take Flight. Last I looked, you need an activity every 18 months.

LATAM to Leave the oneworld Alliance Effective May 1, 2020.. The main U.S. partner in oneworld is American Airlines. I have always used AA miles to fly to and within Latin America. Fortunately LATAM plans to form alliances with individual airlines. Also, Delta is buying part of LATAM, so we can probably expect to eventually see LATAM having a partnership with Delta, possibly by joining Sky Team. We shall see.

1/30/2020 Credit Cards The Delta Airlines American Express personal and business credit card offers have much improved - up to 70,000 miles for the ones that waive the $99 annual fee the first year, and 15,000 miles for the free card. The goodies are better, too.

I can refer you to a 25,000 Membership Rewards points offer for the Business Green Rewards Card from American Express. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year. Remember that Membership Rewards Points transfer to Delta and many other airlines 1,000:1,000.

1/17/2020 Other Programs I Like The Delta and Alaska Airlines Rewards Network (iDine) bonus for new members were extended. The Southwest Airlines bonus was improved.
Everyone who might dine out should join one or more of the dining programs. A restaurant's membership in these programs is advertised only on the Rewards Network website. You won't even see a sign on the door. So go ahead and register a credit card with them and be surprised.
1/16/2020 ?? Free Entrance Days in the National Parks. Also consider purchasing one of the America the Beautiful Passes. I bought (and still have) the life time senior pass when it was still $10.
1/16/2020 Credit Cards I updated my referral link to the 60,000 miles Delta Airlines personal credit card offer. The standard offer is 30K.

I can refer you to the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express with the possibility of earning up to $500 cash back. The standard offer does not have the cash back feature. The card has no annual fee.

I can refer you to the Business Green Rewards Card from American Express with a 25,000 Membership Rewards points bonus. The standard offer is 15K points. The annual fee is waived the first year.

1/15/2020 ?? Royal Air Maroc’s Oneworld membership will begin in April. 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.

If you prefer miles from other airlines, I would wait a few days to see what the competition offers.

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.
1/12/2020 Credit Cards I updated my write-up on the free Choice Privileges credit card. The bonus is now 35,000 points. Choice Privileges is the loyalty points program of Choice Hotels -Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion and MainStay Suites, EconoLodge, Rodeway Inns, and many others.
1/11/2020 Credit Cards The Radisson Rewards personal Visa credit card offer has been changed to 120,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on your card within the first 90 days. $75 annual fee.

I added more links to the Southwest Airlines 75,000 points credit card offers.

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). I see Hawaiian as a very interesting up and coming airline for flight to Hawaii and Asia on its metal and elsewhere via its partners.

1/3/2020 Other Programs I Like The United Airlines Rewards Network (iDine) bonus for new members was extended, and a new bonus for United credit card holders was added. The links to the program were changed. The dining program for Spirit Airlines was extended.
Everyone who might dine out should join one or more of the dining programs. A restaurant's membership in these programs is advertised only on the Rewards Network website. You won't even see a sign on the door. So go ahead and register a credit card with them and be surprised.
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!
12/29/2019 Credit Cards A kind reader pointed out that the Barlcay Bank American Airlines Aviator personal credit card no longer gives 10% back for miles redemption.
