Have a solar panel consultation for 5,000 American miles. For the few of you who actually get these installed, grab another 25,000 miles. Limited states.
After posting about Hilton Gold a couple days ago, I heard from a few of you about Hyatt. I didn’t know it, but apparently Friday is the last day to register for their new Diamond Challenge. Sure, the Diamond challenge isn’t what it used to be, and it will be back in some form…but you might want to enroll tomorrow if you’re looking to get in under the current rules.
For me, hotel status is only a huge deal when you reach the top levels (Hyatt Diamond, Starwood Platinum, etc). For mid-tier status, the benefits are pretty limited. Still, as middle-of-the-road status goes, Hilton Gold might be the best of the bunch. Get to that level here with 3 stays in 90 days.
This is a friendly reminder to read the small print when applying for cards.
It seems simple enough, right?
So just do it.
Take the extra 30 seconds to notice important phrases like:
“Bonus not available to applicants who have had this product in the last 12 months.”
As long as I’ve been doing this and with as much as I know…I still made 3 dumb mistakes this year. I moved a little too fast, didn’t pay enough attention, and it cost me 3 bonuses. Ugh. Rookie mistakes.
Sure, the credit card churning game is trickier than it was a couple years ago. No doubt about that. Barclays can be a pain, Chase is pickier than ever, Amex limits personal bonuses to once-in-a-lifetime, and even Bank Of America is getting annoying.
So don’t make it harder on yourself.
Stay organized and read the small print.
