First Ever Ultimate Rewards Transfer Bonus on Cusp of Avios Devaluation

For the first time ever, Ultimate Rewards is offering a transfer bonus to one of their loyalty program partners: British Airways Avios. Through June 16, 2019 at 11:59 pm ET, you will earn 30% more points for Ultimate Rewards to British Airways transfers. That means 10,000 Ultimate Rewards translates to 13,000 Avios, and 20,000 Ultimate Rewards is 26,000 Avios.

The fact that there is an Ultimate Rewards transfer bonus is exciting news in itself.

Fare War: $29 Inter-Island Hawaii Flights

I'll keep this brief as to be timely, as these fares won't last.

Southwest just dropped their price on some of their brand new inter-island flight, between Honolulu and Maui, to $29, and Hawaii Airlines is playing ball. Right now you can find flights on both airlines between Honolulu and Maui, as well as Honolulu and Kona (on Hawaiian) for the super low price of $29.

I'm seeing the Southwest flights pricing at just 1,379 Rapid Rewards (and $5.60 in tax).

100k Amex Platinum Targeted Offer!

Update 4/30: The CardMatch tool is back with the 100,000 Membership Reward bonus offer for the Amex Platinum card. This 100k offer resurfaces pretty regularly, so while not uncommon, it is worth checking again if you weren't targeted the last time as they seem to target different rounds of customers each time. 

There is a targeted offer available through creditcards.com's CardMatch Tool for 100,000 Membership Rewards for spending $5,000 on your new Platinum within three months of account opening.

Top 10 Business Credit Cards for Travel Rewards: April 2019

Applying for business credit cards is a great way to earn more miles and points than you already do, but many people don’t apply for business cards because they incorrectly believe they don’t qualify.

You don't need to have employees, nor does your business need to be profitable. You can use your social security number instead of an EIN on the application.

Free Giveaway: $200 Southwest Gift Card

Giveaway time.

I like Southwest for many reasons. You always get to fly with two checked bags for free. No other US carrier has that lenient of a domestic baggage policy. Flights booked with enough anticipation (or during frequent sales) can be super cheap, with points as well as cash. They have one of the best and most flexible change and cancellation policies. In general they tend to put customers first more than other US carriers.

This week one lucky reader will win a $200 Southwest gift card. Southwest gift cards are fully transferable and don’t expire.

Sapphire Preferred Improves Offer to 60k

Chase has increased the bonus on the Sapphire Preferred Card from 50,000 Ultimate Rewards to 60,000 Ultimate Rewards without increasing the minimum spending requirement which is still $4,000 within three months of account opening. The 50k bonus was worth at least $625*, more like $1,000* if you utilize valuable airline loyalty program transfer partners. Now it's worth at least $750*, and more like $1,200* transferring to airline partners.
