Another week has gone by and it is time for me to summarize this week’s posts for those who have missed out. Links are provided to each one for curiosity.
This is the last PYCR Weekly Review of 2019 and the 2010s. It is also PYCR’s 250th post! Three of this week’s posts were News posts that presented the details on some credit card earning opportunities. And the fourth one was a Perspectives post that ranked some popular transferrable point earning cards.
Without further ado, here’s the weekly review:
Chase IHG Premier Card Offering 125,000 Bonus Points
Monday’s first post discussed the Chase IHG Premier Card, which is offering 125,000 bonus points to select IHG members. My Dad was targeted with this offer and the mail advertisement served as the inspiration for this post.
This 125,000-point offer is the best I have ever seen for the IHG Premier Card. That’s because IHG and Chase are offering more points for all purchases the first year you have the card. One of the best parts is that IHG purchases will earn a whopping 40x points (as opposed to 10x points)!
Discover It Offering Up To 3% Extra Cash Back On All Purchases
Monday’s second post was a game changer for me personally! The Discover It began offering up to 3% extra cash back on all purchases early last week. After finding out about this promotion, I decided to call Discover to see if I was eligible. I found out that I was eligible for earning an extra 3% cash back on all purchases for the next six months.
This was a nice holiday gift from Discover! My Discover It card will reside in the top slot of my wallet for the first half of 2020. However, I will still use my Chase Freedom Unlimited for non-bonus spend at places that do not accept Discover.
Ranking the American Express Membership Rewards Earning Cards
On Tuesday, I ranked the American Express Membership Rewards (MR) earning cards. This was an interesting post because it sparked some discussion in the comments. Plus, the inspiration came from a YouTube video from Wallers Wallet, who also ranked the Amex MR earning cards.
Nonetheless, Amex MR earning cards are some of the most valuable on the market for travelers. But they are not created equally. Some are better than others for earning opportunities (sign-up bonuses and earning structures). This post explains which ones are the best within these two categories.
Two Hilton Honors Credit Cards Are Offering Higher Bonuses
Friday’s post discussed some new offers for two of American Express Hilton Honors cards. The no annual fee Hilton Honors Card and the Hilton Honors Business Card are both offering $100 statement credits alongside their normal sign-up bonuses.
Both offers are worth a total of $200 and 200,000 Hilton Honors (HH) points! Plus, both cards have an effective annual fee of $0 for the first year. Thereafter, the Hilton Honors Business Card has a $95 annual fee.
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday and happy holidays this coming week! Stay posted for more content next week!
