Rumor: AMEX to Make It Easier to Earn Same-Card Sign-Up Bonus Twice

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! :)

Each quarter, with its PointBreaks promotion, IHG slashes the points price on a number of their hotels around the world to 5,000 IHG points per night.

Using the IHG Points & Cash trick, these rooms are only ~$35!  Or ~$30 using this version of the trick.

PointBreaks Sale Book IHG Hotels For 35 Per Night

The IHG PointBreaks List Doesn’t Have Many Exciting Deals This Time Around. But You Still Might Find Good Discounts, Like Using 5,000 Points to Explore Madrid

You could also use your IHG points earned from the Chase IHG card and their promotions.

Usually, there are some gems on the list that get sold out quickly.  This time around though, there are NOT many hotels on the list with mass appeal.  :(

However, you still might find a roadside hotel or airport hotel in a location to save you money on an upcoming trip.
