Get a Year of Amazon Prime Membership With American Express EveryDay and Blue Cash Cards

Could you use Amazon 2-day shipping, plus streaming music, e-books, videos, and early access to sales?

Now you can get a 1-year Amazon Prime membership when you sign-up for the American Express EveryDay Preferred, American Express EveryDay, American Express Blue Cash EveryDay and American Express Blue Cash Preferred card and complete the minimum spending requirements.

This is in addition to the regular sign-up bonus!

But they’ve reduced the sign-up bonus on the Blue Cash EveryDay and Blue Cash Preferred by $50, so those cards aren’t that good a deal.  Especially if you already have an Amazon Prime account!

Normally, Amazon Prime membership costs $99 per year.  This is a great deal, especially if you shop at Amazon frequently.  You could save a lot of money on shipping alone!

How Will the American Airlines and US Airways New AAdvantage Program Affect You?

American Airlines explained how they’ll combine their AAdvantage frequent flyer program with US Airways Dividend Miles today, as part of their merger with US Airways.  And it’s generally good news, because not a lot is changing.

Some folks were worried there would be major negative changes, like award tickets costing more miles, or transitioning to a revenue-based program (where you earn miles based on the cost of your ticket and not the distance flown) like Delta and United Airlines have done.

I’m happy to report that American Airlines is not changing their award chart or making any major changes to how you earn miles!  Most of the changes will impact folks with elite status.
