American Express Adds Four New Locations from JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach to Chillax Programme

World of Hyatt Makes Premium Suites Available on Points but Makes Points + Cash More Expensive

There has been plenty of speculation going on in the industry and the suspicions have been confirmed - World of Hyatt members will be required to pay 'more' for free nights using Points + Cash from 01 November 2018.

A Guide to Chillax (Free Drinks!) for American Express Platinum Members + Google Map Locations

A number of years ago, I wrote about the Chillax benefit for American Express Platinum members when I held the American Express Platinum Credit Card. It has been slightly over two years since my last official credit card with American Express and I have only recently gotten the brand new metal Platinum Card. As such, I decided to revisit the list of merchants and I was pleasantly surprised at how little I had to do to get a free drink (usually it involves buying another).
