G-Star RAW To Exit List of American Express Platinum EXTRA Partner from 01 May 2019 - No More 7.81 Miles per Dollar here!

The Platinum Card from American Express offers plenty of benefits and with the recent inclusion of Singapore Airlines in the International Airline Programme (IAP), this card has gotten a lot more useful for me since I can now book Business Class flights at a significant discount (and still earn miles/PPS Value from them)!

Today, a number of changes to the IAP have been implemented for The Platinum Card by American Express.

It goes without saying that I am a huge advocate for ShopBack - I have gotten more than S$3,000 worth of cashback from using it over the last couple of years and I have recently discovered ShopBack GO which allows you to earn cashback even when you dine out and pay with your credit card(s).

Incorrect Points Marriott Bonvoy Posted from Recent W Taipei Stay - 14% Lesser so Always Check Your Points!

I have recently completed an amazing stay at the W Taipei where I was upgraded into a Marvelous Suite as a Platinum Elite member. However, when I looked at my Marriott Bonvoy account this morning, I realised that the points posted here approximately 14% lower than what I was expecting - it is always a good idea to calculate an estimated ballpark figure for the number of points you will earn from each stay and then reconcile it afterwards.
