You Can Save a Friend or Family Member $100 With This Card Perk!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Bob, commented:

I have several credit cards that will reimburse me for the Global Entry application fee.  Can I pay for a friend’s application fee using my card and still get the credit?

Excellent question, Bob!  You certainly can!

When you pay the $100 Global Entry fee with cards like the AMEX Platinum or Chase Sapphire Reserve, you’ll automatically get a credit for the charge once every 4 or 5 years (depending on the card).

This terrific perk is NOT linked to the cardholder.  So you can pay the fee for ANYONE and still get the credit.  This is great for folks who already have Global Entry.

If you have a Global Entry fee credit to spare, I’m sure your friends will appreciate you saving them time and money! 🙂

You Can Use Certain Credit Cards to Pay for Someone Else’s Global Entry Fee and Still Get a Credit!  Friends or Family Will Appreciate You Saving Them Money and Time at the Airport

I’ll remind y’all which cards come with the $100 Global Entry fee credit!  And how you can use it to pay the fee for a friend or family member.

Update: Earn 3X Points on Almost Anything With This New Card!

Last week I shared a rumor about new valuable US Bank card, the US Bank Altitude Reserve.

And now we have new details about the card!  Some are a bit disappointing, but some are really exciting!

For example, the $325 annual travel credit is per cardmember year, NOT calendar year.  So you won’t be able to get it twice before the second annual fee is due (like you can with the Chase Sapphire Reserve).

But getting approved for the card might be easier than we first thought!  I’ll explain.

Rumor: New Premium Card from US Bank, Sign-Up Bonus Worth $750!

Via Miles to Memories, there’s a new premium credit card from US Bank coming May 1, 2017!

US Bank’s Altitude Reserve Visa card will compete with cards like the AMEX Platinum, Chase Sapphire Reserve, and Citi Prestige.

It will (supposedly!) come with a 50,000 point sign-up bonus, and perks like an annual travel credit, bonus points for travel spending, a credit for Global Entry, and more.

I’m excited about it, because more credit card options means more competition between banks.  And that’s a good thing for folks like us!
