New 100,000/75,000 Starwood American Express credit cards, 30% transfer bonus to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, $500/$250 off Cathay Pacific Round Trips

Posted on August 1, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– American Express has launched Marriott Rewards/SPG credit cards that come with a 100,000 (Business Card) and 75,000 Personal card sign-up bonus

The sign-up bonus is roughly in-line with the bonus that was offered for Starwood cards before. American Express and Chase are planning to share data on which cards for the combined programs you have/had and introducing a 30 days/ 90 days/ 24 months rule.

Not so long ago it was pretty to easy to tell if you are eligible for a sign-up bonus – now you need a PhD do understand them.

– American Express (US cards only) is having a 30% transfer bonus promotion to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

Flying Club has added a few rather exotic (but great value) redemptions on ANA/ Air New Zealand and South African Airways that are worth studying for your travel plans.

Keep in mind that Citibank ThankYou is running a 30% transfer promotion to Air France/KLM’s Flying Blue right now.

Cathay Pacific is offering $500 (Business Class) / $250 (Premium Economy) off any Round Trip booked on Cathay Pacific

The code REWARD is valid for Round Trips from the US and bookings for September to December.

Cathay Pacific Premium fares aren’t cheap generally but this is a substantial discount.
