This has resurfaced again – May 27, 2018

Sometimes, the CardMatch tool provides that targeted offer you’ve been waiting for. I suggested to a MilesTalk reader yesterday that, based on their upcoming spend, they may want to look into an American Express Platinum charge card. I suggested that they check CardMatch, as late last year there were reports of Amex targeting people for a welcome offer of 100,000 Membership Rewards points for $5,000 in spend over 3 months.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

My reader reported back that he indeed was offered that welcome bonus yesterday (making me jealous since I just checked my own CardMatch and got a goose egg). Everyone’s offers are different, so I can’t predict what you’ll be offered.

What about you? Are you targeted for this 100,000 point offer?   Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.

New to all of this? My new “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available now.



I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
