  1. Thanks for the trackback Gary! I certainly hope banks and credit companies learn their lesson as a result!

  2. The WF AMEX card seems somewhat like the AMEX PRG. I assume WF runs it, though, not AMEX?

  3. “My excuse is that I learned about it for the first time from him!”
    And that’s partially why some don’t come here to learn about best CC offers.

  4. @ABC – I’m on vacation in the Maldives. Everyone is allowed, from time to time, to take a couple of days not paying 100% attention to new offers in real-time. But I thought it was important so I linked to it.

  5. Yeah ABC that was a pretty lame callout. Did you know about it before reading here? Btw i have not seen it on any of the other blogs i read and even flyertalk only has a very small thread with little info

  6. @ABC – I actually think Gary does a pretty decent job of informing his readers of the better credit card offers.

  7. Gary, enjoy your badself on vacation, man! I appreciate what you do for us on this blog, in spite of those who snipe at you.

  8. To be fair, Wells Fargo hasn’t even issued a proper press release for the new propel cards yet. They just did a soft launch and pfdigest was good enough to spot it and the value it implied.

  9. The Maldives? Again? Good for you!

    That must be the reason I never saw the post listing the winners of AAvantage miles/AAdmirals Club passes? 😉
