AMEX Delta Gold Increased to 50,000 Mile Bonus + $50 for a Limited Time

Until December 21, 2014, American Express has increased the sign-up bonus on the Gold Delta SkyMiles (personal) and Gold Delta SkyMiles (business) cards.

On the application page, click on “Are You a Business Owner?” to see business offer.

You’ll get 50,000 miles after you spend $1,000 in the 1st 3 months.  And if you make a Delta purchase in the 1st 3 months, you’ll also get a $50 statement credit.

Normally, the sign-up bonus is 30,000 miles, so this is a very good deal!

These aren’t my links, but I’ll always tell you about better offers, even if they don’t earn us a commission.

Bank of America Virgin Atlantic Increased Bonus Is Back!

For a limited time, Bank of America has increased the sign-up bonus on the Virgin Atlantic card to 70,000 miles.  Plus, you’ll get 5,000 more miles for adding 2 authorized users to your account.

Even though it’s marketed as a 90,000 mile card, you’ll only get the last 15,000 miles on your card anniversary, and only if you spend a lot.  So this is really a 75,000 mile offer!

And you’ll have to spend $12,000 in the 1st 6 months to get the full bonus.  But there are lots of ways to do that!

Avoid Checked Bag Fees With These Cards!

Do you dislike paying checked bag fees as much as I do?

Many airlines charge a $25 fee for your 1st checked bag when you fly coach between the US, Canada, Mexico, and certain Caribbean islands.

(Although my favorite airline for inexpensive domestic travel, Southwest, gives you 2 free checked bags!)

Free Checked Bags

Here’s a List of Cards That Will Let You Check Your Bag for Free!

That’s $25 each way, so if you’re traveling with a companion you could have to pay $100 extra for a round-trip flight (Business and First Class passengers usually don’t have to pay this fee, along with some airline elite status members).  And if you travel frequently these fees can really add up!

Luckily there are credit cards that will give you your 1st checked bag for free!

11 Airlines That Allow You to Share Miles

At some point you may want to share miles with someone, whether it’s your significant other, family member, or a friend who’s traveling with you.  Sharing miles comes in handy when you don’t have enough miles in your account for an award ticket.  Remember that you can usually always use the miles to book an award for a friend of family members without transferring the miles.

But sometimes you don’t have enough miles in your account.  So why not just transfer miles when you want them?  Because airlines usually charge a fee to transfer your miles.  But some frequent flyer programs allow you to share miles.

Frequent Flyer Programs That Allow Mile Sharing

Here are 11 frequent flyer programs that allow sharing miles (pooling of miles under 1 account) between family members.  Most of these programs are not US-based, and other than JetBlue, Hawaiian Air, and British Airways, may not be very practical for US readers because they charge fuel surcharges when you use your miles for an award.
