Wow – it’s been awhile

I apologize for my sabbatical.  I didn’t realize how long it’s been.  Honestly, I haven’t seen a whole lot in the travel hacking world to write about.  Most of the credit card offers have been lackluster.  There are a few things that I have thought were pretty good. 

The first one I must thank my sister for pointing it out to me.  The Points Guy posted about 2 weeks ago about how you can get $50 Mastercard gift card for every 2 days you stay at an IHG (Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza, etc) until August 2 (for Monday – Thursday nights).  The maximum you can receive is $200.  You can find a full description of the program at the post that I linked to at the beginning of the paragraph.

The second item is the Virgin Atlantic credit card.  It now has a 45,000 – 50,000 mile sign-up bonus.  You get 20,000 miles after first purchase, another 25,000 after you spend $2,500 on the card in the first 90 days and another 5,000 if you add an authorized user to the card.  The $90 annual fee is NOT waived the first year.

And the last item is the US Airways credit card.  It has a 40,000 mile sign-up bonus after first purchase!  The $89 annual fee is waived the first year.  You can also get up to 2 $99 companion tickets each year.
