Hello from London! I attended an Athletics match this morning at the Olympic Stadium and then saw some Synchronized Swimming this afternoon at the Aquatics Center. Had a great time at both and will post an update later, however I wanted to post some breaking news first while on the run…
1) OFFER EXPIRED –
The SPG Business Card will have an increased sign up bonus starting tomorrow (August 7th – Sept. 3rd) which will be 30k instead of 25k. You’ll receive 10,000 after your first purchase and an additional 20,000 when you spend $5,000 within the first 6 months. All other T&Cs remain the same including the first year fee free. As always, you can sign up for a business card even if you don’t own a business. See here for full details on the card and signing up for a business card. Update 5:16pm EST – The Personal SPG card will also offer the enhanced 30k sign-up bonus from August 7th – 3rd with the same T&Cs. Click here for further details or to apply or click here to find out why this has been one my favorite cards for the last ten years.
2) There are fares from New York to Israel pricing roundtrip at $337 including tax. I was able to still find availability (1:45pm EST) for dates in November, December, January, February, and even a few dates in March. Check out this link for availability or go directly to cheapoair.com Update – The deal is dead, price fixed to above $1000 for the booking. However, El Al will be honoring all flights booked at the $337 rate. See the comments section for further detail.
