Million Miles Secrets reader Melissa asked:
I applied for a second Wells Fargo Propel World American Express Card. Am I eligible for the 40,000 point sign-up bonus, since I already received it the first time I applied?
Thanks for the question, Melissa!
I haven’t tried it myself, but according to comments on Doctor of Credit, you CAN earn the sign-up bonus more than once on the same Wells Fargo card.
But, you can now only apply for the Wells Fargo Propel World AMEX card in-branch.
If you don’t want to apply for the same card, you could apply for a different Wells Fargo Propel card and earn the perks from 1 of the other cards.

Million Mile Secrets Reader PDXoptions tweeted:
Pardon my ignorance, I’m new here. Can you transfer US Bank FlexPoints to airline frequent flyer programs, or only book travel through US Bank?
No apology necessary, PDXoptions! I’m glad you asked.
You can NOT transfer US Bank FlexPoints to other loyalty accounts, like airlines and hotels. They can only be redeemed through the US Bank website. But they can still be valuable!

I recently wrote about which card issuers give the best exchange rate for foreign transactions. And ran an experiment which showed MasterCard had the most favorable rates.
But that might not be the case in every situation. Deciding which credit card to use when traveling abroad can be tricky, because the major banks use a different conversion tool for rates.
The Mercez app can check which card gives you the best exchange rate from the local currency into US dollars when making your purchase.

I’ve been playing with the app and the concept is great, but it’s not perfect. Here’s my full review.
