One of the big changes that happened when the IHG Rewards Club Premier card was launched was the introduction of a cap on the free night certificate earned every year on your card anniversary. While the certificate was previously good at any IHG property, it’s now only good at IHG hotels with a redemption point level of 40,000 points or less. While that may take away your ability to use the certificate at many luxury hotels in big cities, there’s still many hotels where you can get a free night. Several of those hotels are right outside of Walt Disney World (WDW) property.
Going on an international trip is very exciting but it can also be very expensive. Using a credit card to pay for purchases when traveling internationally is often the best way to get a good exchange rate and the rate your bank gets will be better than the one you’ll get on your own if you exchange cash. Using a card also means that you don’t have to carry around a bunch of cash with you. However, many cards will add on a “foreign transaction fee” to any transactions made with anything except your home currency. Here’s an easy way to keep from paying that extra 2-3 percent on all of your purchases while away.
I know that bragging about achieving status is one of the last things you’d expect to hear from me. I’m the one who goes on and on about how I’m a free agent and how great it is to not worry about being loyal to one particular brand of car rental, airline or hotel. As it turns out, there are some times where you end up in a situation and you just have to play the role you’re in. In this story, I’m a Platinum Guest. Smell me! LOLOL!
Wow, I’m more influential than I thought. Less than a month after I wrote my article, Sorry Starbucks, I Love You But I’m Not Going To Sign Up For Your Credit Card, the sign up bonus for the card has been substantially increased :-).
The sign up bonus for the card is now 4,500 stars after spending $500 on purchases in the first three months from your account opening, up from the initial offer of 2,500 stars.
How much does that increase mean in dollars? Here’s what I originally wrote about this offer: Continue reading “Starbucks Increases Sign Up Bonus To 4,500 Stars (Write To Chase If You Took The 2,500 Star Offer)”
