Via Reddit, the rumor mill is blowing unsourced news that American Express will be scrapping its current policy to disallow you from earning the sign-up bonus on a card if you’ve ever had the card before.
I’m selective about the unsubstantiated buzz I post because it sometimes turns out to be incorrect!
In this case I’m writing about it because it makes sense that AMEX would relax their strict policy based on what else has been happening with them.
If the Rumor Is True, Folks Who Closed Cards Like the Premier Rewards Gold and Starwood AMEX Would Be Eligible to Earn the Sign-Up Bonus Again. That’d Make It Easier to Get Free Stays at Places Like the St. Regis Princeville Resort
Also, I want it to be true so very, very badly! 🙂

1. Get Into US National Parks for Free for a Year
You can get into US National Parks for free for an entire year and all you need is a 4th grader! Children under 15 get into National Parks for free any time. But now, thanks to the President’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, 4th graders can bring their family along for free during the 2015 to 2016 school year.
A 4th Grader Could Be Your Ticket to the Park
Families who are interested will get a free annual pass. Details on how to get passes have not been released yet, but I’ll let you know when they are!
This is a great excuse to plan a family or school trip to incredible places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore. So get the word out to your friends, relatives, neighbors, and local schools!
Explore the Beauty of Places Like Arches National Park, Utah, for Free!
Don’t Have a 4th Grader?
You can still get into US National Parks for free in 2015 on these dates:
- April 18 to 19 (National Park Week opening weekend)
- August 25 (National Park Service 100th anniversary!)
- September 26 (National Public Lands day)
- November 11 (Veterans Day)

There may not be much more time left to get the American Express JetBlue card. According to news reports, JetBlue is talking with other banks to find a new partner to issue its cards.
If you’ve been thinking of applying for this card, you might want to do it soon, because if JetBlue contracts with another bank, this card will be discontinued!
I haven’t written much about the American Express JetBlue card, because the sign-up bonus isn’t that great and most folks prefer other American Express cards with bigger bonuses and better benefits.
The JetBlue AMEX Card Might Fly Away for Good!
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider it! Especially if you’re running out of cards to apply for.
