Episode 45: Heightened Credit Card Offers, an Air Transfer Bonus, and a Juicy Grocery Promo

On this week’s “No Annual Fee” podcast we discuss…

0:25 Amex Personal Gold/Platinum Offers through Resy (HT DDG)

  • Direct Link to offers
  • Personal Gold has standard characteristics (60k welcome bonus, $4k min spend, $250 fee) plus
  • 20% back at restaurants first year up to $250 back
  • Personal Platinum has standard characteristics (75k welcome bonus, $5k min spend, $550 fee) plus
  • 20% back at restaurants first year up to $300 back
  • 10x on Gas and Supermarkets up to $15,000 spend for 6 months
  • Offers do contain lifetime language
  • Platinum offer is even better than even a 25k referral, right?
  • But maybe not as good as a +3x referral
  • Worth a shot to see if you get the pop-up?

4:25 Chase Ink 75,000 Ultimate Reward Offers

6:10 Chase United MileagePlus Explorer 70,000 Offer

  • Direct Link
  • 60,000 for $3,000 in first 3 months
  • +10,000 for for additional $6,000 within first 6 months
  • $95 AF waived first year

7:45 Chase UR: 30% Transfer Bonus to Avios

  • Expires 12/9/2020
  • HT MilesTalk
  • Is this enough to give you pause over cashing out at 1.5 cpp?

9:45 Stop & Shop: $25 Grocery Voucher for $150+ 3rd Party GC Purchase

  • Works for Best Buy, probably anything that’s not a VGC/MCGC
  • Purchase 11/6-11/26/2020
  • Coupons expire 12/2/2020
  • Limit 1 $25 voucher per transaction (both on the purchase and the redemption)
  • Sometimes these are capped at 10 uses per S&S account, other times not capped
  • At sister store Giant, it’s 5x on 3rd party GCs (which I think I’d actually like more since the rewards are easier to use)

12:10 New Annual Subscription Option

  • 10% off for a new yearly subscription
  • Good option for those currently subscribed at $14.95
  • Visit patreon.com/milenomics and select the “or save 10% if you pay annually” option

If you like these free shows, we think you’ll love the paid shows. They’re longer and much more in-depth. We recently released Episode 100 where we discuss the origin story of Milenomics the blog, our Shop Talk series, and the Milenomics Podcast Network.

This week on the paid show we’ll be discussing:

  • Good news/bad news for generating points & miles
  • A clawback comeback
  • …and cashing out vs. Stockpiling
