Yes, this perk is gone. Only reason I got the business card last year - to assure access when I might not have status. Platinum right now, Gold for next year but the year isn't over for platinum. A...

Success

Just used the retention phone number. I have both a personal card (since 1999) and a business card (1 year). Attempts to waive the fee for one card even upon threat of cancelling were to no avail. I...

New business card

I've had a personal card since 1999 and just got the business card for a 25K promo (spending $5K in 3 months) and first year fee waived. (Main reason was the guaranteed access to the club lounge...

In the past I have achieved GOLD through the $30K spend. This is less possible with Costco giving up AMEX. Since I get 2 stays and 5 night credit from the credit card, and award stays count I am...

shopsmall bonus

I had had another $40 charge and 40 points showed up a couple of days later. So you could try totaling charges per day and see if it adds up. Not all small businesses are necessarily part of the...

Smile shopsmall bonus

The posting you see is indeed the shopsmall bonus which seems to appear within a few days of the charge posting. The first one was two charges combined, but then I had a $12 charge - and within a few...

Thank you points come from two possible sources. Checking accounts and credit cards. The points from checking accounts are taxable if you cash in more than $600. In that case you will receive a 1099...

$50,000 in any form - checking, saving, retirement accounts, I think that credit lines might also count. All my credit cards were grandfathered in for the fee being waived.

No longer true

This was titled - this deal is dead. Back in 2009. Why would you quote it and post it?
This is such outdated news. AMEX stopped considering this a purchase for the sake of getting points years ago....

clarification

I called AA and was told that the card did not need to be used to pay taxes in order to get 10% rebate. Called the credit card and the first rep said you did - it seemed logical to her. I asked for a...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and will stay again when I go back. The location is good - probably had an affair at the same temple. I think the hotel is very nice - stayed with my cousin and...

Citibank

Since when does Citibank charge a 3% FE fee? I think it is important to ask at a branch to get the correct answers. Maybe it is only citigold now. However there are also citibank branches in London....

You can be some big ticket items that you plan to return. You will ultimately have to spend that amount of money but it is a way to speed things up. I just got an AA amex for 75K miles with a $4000...
