A Mileage Opportunity Ends

One Mile at a Time mourns the loss of buying American Express travelers checks fee-free with co-branded American Express cards and earning the miles.

I too am sad to see this go, and of late when you could buy them online even with under $6 shipping and save the trip to the Amex travel office it was even better. They’d mail you the travelers checks, you’d deposit them in your checking, and use the funds to pay off the card.. generating easy miles.

A moment of silence, please.
