I wish I had the hotel booking offer. I will be staying for a couple of days in Vegas for valentines (but the weekend AFTER valentines), and it's paid for, but I'm sure the resort fee and food will be $100.

That is a good hotel offer. I got $60 off $300+ at Hilton (where I'm not even in the loyalty program).

I can't be arsed to add Twitter offers honestly. I take the offers I see on the AX site but the truly good ones don't seem to show up all that often.

I was really disappointed when I saw the Amex twitter offers. I had the expectation that there were a lot of great offers not available on the regular website.

*Waiting for 2016 PRG airfare credit to post. I'm thinking about closing PRG before the next AF. It feels... successfully drained of value. :ppp Keeping it is certainly an option, too.

I'm with you. I really screwed myself last year with the airline credit. I left $75 on the table; just too busy at the end of the year and slipped my mind. :beat:

I used the PRG 2016 airfare credit for $100 ($85 economic) and PRG Whole Foods $10 back on $60+ ($8 economic).

BCE: +$72
PRG: +$91
EDP: -$26

I'll keep PRG for at least a few more months, and probably renew for another year, but closure isn't out of the question. Downgrading EDP to ED is likely.
