Woohoo! My cert expiring Dec. 27 has been extended to Dec. 31!

If you’re elite on X, activity on Y earns you bonuses on X.

This does not strike me as an apt analogy. Yes, pancake customers would get upset if the price for an identical product fluctuated wildly from day to day. But that is not how hotel rooms (or airline...

When I upgraded to Surpass from the no-fee card, Amex charged a pro-rated amount of the annual fee, and then assessed the full AF when my anniversary came around. That suggests to me that one's card...

That seems highly dependent on one’s approach to holding/churning premium Chase UR cards. Someone who has periods with no premium cards would find the Freedom card a handy place to warehouse UR.

It's wild that nobody has mentioned the liberalization of the inactivity period for points expiration (now 15 months instead of 12). Or did that happen a while back & I just missed it?
