On September 9th, Hilton started their end of 2019 promotion. It’s not much different from their past offers. The Power Up promotion offers double base points on all stays between September 9, 2019 and January 5, 2020. If you use a Hilton Honors American Express card to pay for your stay, you’ll earn triple base points.
Normally, I’d say this promotion is rather bland and since Hilton points are only worth 1/2 cent each, it’s not much of an incentive to change any upcoming stays to a Hilton property.
Well, things change and now I’m really excited about this promotion.

American Express is currently the only bank offering co-branded cards with Hilton Honors. They have a diverse card line of cards with options ranging from one with no-annual-fee to a premium card with a $450 annual fee. When I wrote about how I’m stuck at Hilton Gold status, I mentioned that I could just sign up for the Hilton Aspire AMEX and I’d automatically have Diamond status. One comment to the post asked why I just didn’t sign up for the card. Good question. Here’s a look at what the card offers and if it’s worth the annual feel for the benefits it provides.
If you decide that you want to sign up for the Hilton Aspire card, or any of the Hilton credit cards (or any AMEX card for that matter), we’d appreciate if you use our link. We receive a bonus for each referral and that helps us keep Your Mileage May Vary HQ going strong.

I know watching the news stories about the devastation in the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian can make you feel helpless. After a while, you just feel numb and you want to do something, do anything, but don’t know how you can help.
Luckily, most of the airline and hotel programs are making it easy to contribute in any way you can. Even if you don’t have the cash to spare, you can donate those random points you have here and there to the recovery effort. Even better, you can donate points if you have more of them than you know what to do with. Face it, it’s better to donate them than redeem them for some magazines that you’ll never read, overpriced luggage or an Amazon InstaPot.

If you spend a lot of money each month filling your car with gas, it makes sense to maximize your return on those expenses. Many credit cards offer bonuses on gas purchases. It’s a smart business choice because using a card for gas means that card will always be in your wallet or purse and you’re more likely to use that card for other purchases besides when you go to fill up the tank.
Which card is the BEST? It depends on what type of reward you want to earn (cash or points), if you want to pay an annual fee and if you want an all-around card or a card that’s just for gas purchases. This is one of the instances where Your Mileage May Vary. Here are some of the cards available, with an above-average return on gas purchases.
