What's In My Wallet? June 2019

The cards in my wallet rotate each month depending on if I’m traveling, trying to meet minimum spend requirements, or optimizing for 5x quarters.

Amex Hilton Aspire

I recently upgraded my Amex Hilton Ascend to a second Aspire card due to the 150,000 point upgrade offer.

The 150k upgrade offer does have a $4,000 minimum spend requirement within the next 3 months, so I’ll be working on the spend.

U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve

I receive a 10,000 point retention offer for the U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve, so I’m keeping it in my wallet this month to put some transactions on it.

The customer service rep stated that they would like to see more in-person or mobile transactions. There wasn’t a spend requirement for the retention offer.

Amex Platinum and Priority Pass Cards

We’re taking a few trips this summer, so the Amex Platinum is in my wallet for Centurion and Delta Sky Club access. Priority Pass is there in case the lounges are too crowded or if I want to try a Priority Pass restaurant.
