1. British Airways Spending Bonus Changes!
According to The Points Guy, Chase is making some changes to the British Airways card.
You currently earn 2.5 British Airways Avios points per dollar spent with British Airways and 1.25 points per dollar spent everywhere else.
But notices have been sent out to some cardholders that starting April 30, 2015, you’ll earn 3X points at British Airways and 1 point per dollar spent on all other purchases.
You Won’t Earn as Many Points on Everyday Spending With the Chase British Airways Card
While this notice has only been sent to some folks, this change is likely taking place for all cardholders.

The weather’s warming up, cities are beginning to thaw out, and many kids (and grown-up kids!) are dreaming of taking a trip to Walt Disney World this summer.
But tickets to the park alone can cost ~$100 per person per day! So how can a family make it more affordable?

I’ll show you how you make your kid’s dreams come true for less!
Do you know which 2 cards can get you a 5-night trip to Disney World?
I’ve written before about Starwood hotel’s “Nights & Flights” awards which helps folks get Big Travel with Small Money. But it can also get your family a Disney vacation during spring break or summer!
2 Cards = Disney World Holiday
Two American Express Starwood (personal) or (business) cards + 10,000 Starwood points can get you 5 nights + 2 airline tickets to the Magic Kingdom.
Or if you can wait for the 30,000 Starwood point bonus to return, just 2 cards.
1. 2 Free Uber Rides (New Members Only)
Have you tried Uber yet?
If not, Frequent Miler reports new users can get 2 free rides (up to $15 each) through May 1, 2015. Just enter promotional code “LUCKY15″ to get your credits.
Or if you only plan on taking 1 more ride, you can get a $20 credit towards your 1st ride using my link.
Taking a free ride with Uber is a great way to get home safely on St. Patrick’s Day!
Please Don’t Drive!
Because Uber is considered travel, you get 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you use your Chase Sapphire Preferred card.
Or you can get 2.2% back when you use your Barclay Arrival Plus card ($25 minimum travel redemption).
And paying with your eligible AMEX earns you 2X American Express Membership Rewards points per $1.
2. Remember to Link Your American Airlines & US Airways Accounts!
You can earn Starwood points when you use Uber if you have 1 completed Starwood stay in the current year.
So many folks were curious if the 2 stays and 5 nights that you earn from the Starwood (personal) or (business) card counted towards the stay requirement.
You Can Stay at Any Starwood Hotel Like the W New Orleans French Quarter in the Current Year to Earn Starwood Points When Using Uber
View From the Wing reports that the credit for 2 stays you get by having the Starwood AMEX card will NOT count towards the requirement to earn points with Uber.
