How and when did you start collecting miles and points?
Million Mile Secrets reader, Karen, commented:
One question which I haven’t seen addressed anywhere is what card you recommend to keep from having our AMEX Membership Rewards points disappear. My understanding is that if you don’t have an active AMEX Membership Rewards card, the points are forfeited. Once the Costco AMEX disappears, what should we replace it with to keep our AMEX Membership Rewards points active? Thanks.
Great question, Karen!
You need at least 1 card that’s linked to your AMEX Membership Rewards program number or you will lose ALL your points.
Having the Costco AMEX won’t help you because it does NOT earn AMEX Membership Rewards points, only cash back. So Karen must have another card that DOES earn AMEX Membership Rewards points.
You’ll Lose ALL of Your AMEX Membership Rewards Points Unless You Have at Least 1 Card Linked to Your Membership Rewards Program Number
The best way to keep the points active and transferable is to open an AMEX EveryDay® or AMEX EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card.

Hello Daraius! Could you do a post or list here all of the airlines that don’t assess fuel surcharges for award tickets? Thanks for all that you do.
Hi Robert! That sounds like a good idea!
Some airlines add fuel charges to their award tickets. These extra charges can add hundreds of dollars to your “free” award seat!

If you’re an Airbnb host, a small business credit card is a great way to keep your expenses separate and earn points or cash back at the same time!
Even if you only host a few weeks a year or while you travel yourself, as long as you’re trying to make a profit, you can qualify for a small business credit card.
