I’ve taken a new step to aggregate the best current points and miles deals, so you’ll notice a “Top Deals” tab at the top of the page. This is a one-stop place where you can get the rundown on the most lucrative bonuses and promotions.

I started out with my favorite credit card and loyalty program deals of the moment, but rest assured, I’ll be adding more to this list as time goes on. If you feel that I’ve made a glaring omission, please comment below or email me.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I’m in sunny, warm Los Angeles defrosting from the wretched NY winter. I actually had a very interesting meeting yesterday with a group of top frequent flyers, including Randy Peterson – the founder of Flyertalk. There are a lot of exciting things happening in the frequent flyer community – all of which I’ll be covering here in the near future.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

While this premium card has one of the highest annual fees on the market, it has several valuable perks that could make it worthwhile, depending on your travel patterns. These include a $200 annual airline rebate, lounge access, free Hilton Gold status and free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status.
