Strategy – Focus On Cards Previously Held

My focus is on cards I’ve held in the past, and as a result, received the welcome bonus offers on. This means the heavy hitting American Express Membership Rewards cards like the Platinum Card from American Express, could be a good strategy.

Hotel Cards are my #1 focus. In particular, I’m focused on both the:

I’ve had both of these cards in the past, so with the potential new rule, I theoretically wouldn’t receive the bonus again.

But also the Airline cards like See current Credit Card Offers here to earn more miles.

I’ll defer to a later date the cash back card offers like the TrueEarnings® Card from Costco and American Express, SimplyCash® Business Card from American Express, Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American ExpressBlue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express because their benefit is mainly in holding the card, at which I can downgrade to at a later date from the cards I have in my wallet currently.

But then there are my business cards. I’m fortunate enough to have several businesses, but if the new rules apply to business cards as well, I’ll have to give consideration to the The Business Platinum Card® from American ExpressBusiness Green Rewards Card from American Express (would do Gold over this one).

Love racking up the Delta Miles?

If you are looking for more ways to earn Delta miles, consider The Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card, The Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card or The Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card.

  1. I just signed up for the ‘new’ Ink Bold – meaning the visa version. I have had the Ink Bold mastercard for about 10 months and knew that I liked the card. But by applying for the visa version, I was able to get the bonus signup again. I will not be renewing my original m/c version. Even though the benefits are terrific (5x phone, ofc supply, etc), I don’t need two cards with the same benefits. Love the card.
