Rumor: A New Premium Credit Card Arriving This Fall!

Via Frequent Miler, we might see a valuable new credit card from Bank of America in the near future!

The card is rumored to come with great perks like a travel reimbursement (similar to the credits offered with the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Citi Prestige® Card  ), and a point value of 1.5 cents each toward travel.  But it will also come with a big $450 annual fee!

More Bad News for Folks Who Pay Mortgage, Rent With Credit Cards

Earlier today, I shared news that Plastiq has stopped allowing Visa credit cards for mortgage payments.

Now, via Frequent Miler, folks with the Citi AT&T Access More card (no longer available to new applicants) will no longer earn 3X Citi ThankYou points for rental & real estate payments, and purchasing or reloading gift cards online.  Starting July 22, 2017, you’ll only earn 1X Citi ThankYou point per $1.

I know many in our hobby who use the Citi AT&T Access more to earn lots of points paying their mortgage and rent each month through online payment services like Plastiq.  So this is a bummer!

Limited-Time 10% Airline Transfer Bonus – Worth It?

Via Reddit, you’ll earn a 10% bonus when you transfer Citi ThankYou points to Etihad through July 5, 2017.

This is a nice little bonus if you would have moved points to Etihad anyway.  But I wouldn’t transfer points unless you have a definite plan for the miles!  Because Etihad miles expire 3 years from the date you earn them.

And Etihad miles can be incredibly valuable for certain flights.
