Another week has gone by and its time for me to summarize this week’s posts for those who have missed out. Links are provided to each one for curiosity.
A great deal of major credit card news came this week. That’s why credit cards were the focus of the week.
I started the week by overviewing some of my favorite cards for the major hotel chains. I also looked at transferrable points cards that could be useful for hotel redemptions.
This post examined the two American Express Everyday Cards to see which version is better for most people. The no annual fee Everyday card is a nice option for those who want to keep their Membership Rewards (MR) points balance for free. This is especially true if you were to cancel an MR-earning card with an annual fee.
However, the Everyday Preferred is an amazing card for those who spend heavily in its bonus categories and in general. This version is more of a niche card than its no annual fee counterpart, which is more of a general supplementary card.
On Tuesday, Chase increased the sign-up bonus of the Sapphire Preferred to 60,000 points. The other side of the coin was that they removed the first-year annual fee waiver. This post analyzes the new bonus and whether it’s worth going for outright and compared to the Sapphire Reserve.
On Thursday, American Express added a sign-up bonus worth 35,000 points to the Business Gold Card. Previously, the only bonus that came with the Business Gold Card were a one-year G-Suite credit and a one-year Zip Recruiter membership credit.
This post analyzes if Amex’s revamped offer is a good deal. I also compare the offer to that of the Business Platinum Card and highlighted who would do better with either card.
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday! Stay posted for more content next week!
