August 19 Update: New low interest American Express card, IHG Rewards Club Accelerate and buy points promos

News, Tips & Tricks

American Express launched a new credit card this past Wednesday, the Essential Credit Card is not a rewards credit card but a new low rate card. The card offers an 8.99% ongoing interest rate with no annual fee. Find our more about the new card here
The Essential Credit Card provides a low ongoing interest rate for Cardmembers and allows them to carry a balance over time while making minimum monthly payments. On top of that, the Card offers many of the benefits Amex Cardmembers have grown to love and expect from the brand, including:
Travel Accident Insurance
Buyer's Assurance Protection
Purchase Protection
Emergency Card Replacement
24/7 Customer Service
Fraud Protection Guarantee
Amex Invites
Front Of The Line access to the hottest entertainment

If you happen to be booked on Air Canada's Vancouver to San Diego flight between October 17 and Dec 14 you should be be receiving a call or email about a schedule change as that is being temporarily suspended during that time. Chances are you'll be booked on an Air Canada/United combination connecting through San Fran, Los Angeles or Denver. (Source Routesonline)

Also if you need a boost to your IHG Rewards Club points balance for an award check out the buy points bonus of up to 80% below. Not as good as the 100% we see often so I would only take advantage of this if you really need to top off for an award night.
