While the American Express Platinum cards are the standard for providing travel benefits, you’re eligible for several of the same perks if you have a premier card from a different bank. Since I canceled my Platinum card, I’ve been looking to keep as many of the benefits I had previously with the cards I still have. The Citi Prestige card provides some of the same benefits and some that AMEX doesn’t.
With the Citi Prestige, you get extra benefits with several rental car companies. Here’s a list of the benefits and how to sign up for them.

It’s January so you know what that means…it’s time to look at what changes airlines have made in the rules for basic economy tickets over the last year. In 2018, every airline tweaked their offerings and Alaska Airlines introduced their version of a basic economy ticket, called Saver Fares. In 2019, it shouldn’t, be a surprise that they’ve all made changes, yet again, when it comes to the rules for basic economy.
Here’s the breakdown for each airline when flying a domestic U.S. route as of January 2019. Rules can be different for international flights booked in Basic Economy and can be found on each airline’s website.

Basic Economy. If there is one thing about airfares that airlines are constantly changing, the rules for basic economy fares would have to be at the top of the list.

Check your email because today Sharon and I both received offers to earn Frontier Elite 20K status after taking two round trip flights. Considering that you’d usually need to fly 20,000 miles on Frontier (or spend $20,000 on the Frontier Credit Card) to achieve this status, it’s a pretty good deal. This may be a targeted offer because the emails contained a link specific to our Frontier Miles accounts.
(Update August 7, 2018. the offer is now available to everyone at THIS LINK.)
