  1. I received mail from you regarding MileagePlus United. I want to apply for 50,000 bonus miles after I spend $2,000 on purchases in the first three months my account is open. I do not see it at this website. I want to apply for it today, it expires 3/15/2015. Mrs. Esquivias

    • @Alacia – Unfortunately the public offer as of today (3/14/15) is 30,000 points after meeting the minimum spend requirement. I am not sure what mail you are referring to.

  2. I just got an offer from AMEX for an Enhanced Business Gold Rewards Card with 75,000 Membership rewards points if I spend $5000 in first three months. What’s the catch? Can I cancel it after 4 months? Can I move the Membership rewards to my Delta skymiles account?

    • @Lisa Sanders – There is no catch. However, I suggest waiting closer to the year to cancel. Amex Membership Reward points can be transferred to Delta at a 1:1 conversion.

  3. Hi. We will be traveling to Europe and Israel soon and would like to get a credit card with no foreign transaction fee, 0% balance transfer fee, no annual fee. Thanks!
