The $250 statement credit when you sign-up for the American Express SimplyCash business card after spending $5,000 in the 1st 6 months is back!  But you have to apply by February 24, 2015.

Normally, this card has NO sign-up bonus, so this is a great offer!  And it’s an even better deal because this card currently has no annual fee.

The American Express SimplyCash is a cash back card, which is ideal for folks who want flexibility.  I like using cash back for travel expenses that miles and points won’t pay for, like meals, activities, and shopping!

Fly to Europe This Winter for 35,000 Miles (or Less!)

If you’re thinking about traveling to Europe this winter, you can get a very good deal with US Airways off-peak award tickets.  Between January 15, 2015, and February 28, 2015, it only costs 35,000 miles round-trip in coach class to fly from North America (including Hawaii) to Europe.

Normally, a low-level award ticket on these routes costs 60,000 miles, so this is a great deal!  And because it’s off-peak season, you can often find great deals on European hotels, tours, and attractions too.

You might be able to take vacation days surrounding Presidents Day (February 16, 2015) for a romantic European Valentine’s Day!

You Could Fly to Europe This Winter for Just 35,000 Miles (or Less) Round-Trip

But I’ll show you how to get there for even fewer miles if you have the right credit card!

One of the best ways to get miles and points on your regular spending is to use online shopping portals.

Million Mile Secrets reader Matthew Riggieri commented:

I had gotten the Citi ThankYou Preferred card years ago, and have kept it since it has no annual fee.  I applied for the ThankYou Premier card so I can transfer points to Singapore Airlines.  Can I transfer points from the Preferred to the Premier card?

Matthew is referring to transferring Citi ThankYou points to their new airline transfer partners, which include Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and most recently Flying Blue (Air France and KLM’s frequent flyer program).

Can You Transfer Points Earned On Any Citi ThankYou Card To Airline Partners

You Can Transfer Citi ThankYou Points to Airline Partners, but Only If You Have the ThankYou Premier, Prestige, or Chairman Card

You can only transfer points earned from the Citi ThankYou PremierCiti Prestige, and Citi Chairman cards directly to airline partners. 

Matthew just got the Citi ThankYou Premier card, but he wants to know if he can transfer points from his Citi ThankYou Preferred card to his ThankYou Premier account and then to airline partners.
