A Couple Quick Friday Reminders

I’m heading off for a weekend camping with my 6 year old and his cub scout pack. I’ve home sick for to days and feel like I was run over  by truck so this should be interesting! Before I leave, I thought I’d leave you with a few little items/thoughts.


  • Today is the last day to receive a 35% bonus when transferring AMEX Membership Rewards to British Airways Avios. Transfer bonuses are pretty common from AMEX and typically range from 30%-50%, although the 50% hasn’t been around in close to a year. Avios are great for short hauls, but I wouldn’t recommend transferring the points unless you have a specific use in mind. Otherwise another transfer bonus will likely be around in a couple of months.


  • If you need something to do tonight Visa Signature & Fandango are running the +1 Fridays again this year. Until August 2nd, when you buy 2 or more tickets with a Visa Signature card, you will get one of the tickets for free. Limit is one free ticket per Signature card every 30 days. If you have more than one Signature card you can take advantage of this on each card every 30 days.


  • I don’t why, but I find it comical that some blogs are posting that the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select/World MasterCard sign up bonus has gone up to 40,000, when I’ve had links to the 40k offer in the airline cards tab (for both the MasterCard & the Visa) ever since the 40k bonus ended… Oh  wait… It is because their affiliate link just went up to 40k and the ones I have posted are not affiliate links, just simply the best deals I can find….  🙂


Anyway, you won’t hear from me again until Sunday night or Monday.
