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 was a quiet week for PYCR. Two of this week’s posts were Card Wars Posts, which compared two sets of credit cards from American Express. And the third post was a news post about Jet Blue.
Without further ado, here’s the weekly review:
The Jet Blue Plus Card Has an All-Time High Sign-Up Bonus
Tuesday’s post discussed the Jet Blue Plus Card from Barclays and its all-time high sign-up bonus. Barclays and Jet Blue are offering 60,000 True Blue Points for just $1,000 minimum spend. This bonus is great because it matches that of the Jet Blue Business Card. Getting both cards together can make for a plethora of points with Jet Blue.
This bonus is at an all-time high, making it worth going for if you frequently fly on Jet Blue.
Card Wars: American Express Platinum Card vs Hilton Aspire
Thursday’s post compared two heavyweights from American Express: the Platinum Card and the Hilton Aspire. Both have some of the best travel perks in the industry, but they are meant for different types of travelers. This post illustrates that beautifully.
The Platinum Card is better for those who want luxurious travel experiences and access to more airport lounges. It’s also the best card for those who want a huge sign-up bonus and those who want to earn Membership Rewards (MR) Points.
Conversely, the Hilton Aspire is better for hotel dwellers who want Hilton Diamond Status, Hilton’s highest status. It’s also great for those who want a premium card for just $450 (instead of the Platinum Card’s $550 annual fee).
Card Wars: American Express Everyday Cards
Yesterday’s post compared the two American Express Everyday Cards. These two cards are useful for those who want one card for all purchases. This is because they each offer a points bonus for how often you spend on the card. The Everyday Cards are special because they offer rewards for how often and how much you spend.
The regular Everyday Card is better for more people, especially those with multiple points and miles cards. That’s not just because it has no annual fee. But it also is the only personal card with no annual fee that provides access to transfer partners. Plus, it’s a great way to maintain a balance of MR points for no cost.
Conversely, the Everyday Preferred Card can be a great alternative to the Green or Gold Cards. How good of an alternative depends on how often you plan to use it. It comes with a 50% points bonus and a 3x category for Grocery Stores. With enough use at the Grocery Store, the Everyday Preferred Card can be a better earner than the Gold Card!
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday! Stay posted for more content next week!
