AMEX Membership Rewards Offers Southwest Credits!

Southwest Airlines WallI have The Gold Card from American Express as my business credit card and have always had difficulty finding things to spend the points on. I’m not a huge fan of gift cards but fortunately AMEX doesn’t play the game of diluting point values at lower gift card prices. For example, Citi’s ThankYou Network turns 6,000 points into a $50 gift card, diluting the value of a point by a small percentage. $100 gift cards are 10,000 points though, giving you a true “penny a point” conversion. Anyway, with AMEX’s Membership Rewards I’ve just converted them into either Home Depot cards or Roy’s Restaurant cards (Roy’s is a Hawaiian fusion restaurant that my wife and I absolutely love).

25,000 or $250 Citi PremierPass Elite Promotion

I guess offering 25,000 points is becoming the norm for a lot of the annual fee type cards these days and Citi has thrown its hat into the ring for a share of your wallet. If you apply for their Citi PremierPass Elite Level credit card and make a purchase within the first two months, they’ll credit you with 25,000 points worth a round trip ticket or $250 in gift cards.

It’s not as sizzling hot as the $250 American Express Business Gold card promotion (since that card waives the annual fee) or the now expired $250 Chase Freedom card promotion, but it’s still better than nothing, right?

I don’t know how long the promotion will last since I pulled it from the Citi homepage but there probably isn’t much a rush.
