Blue Sky from American Express® Review
Blue Sky from American Express® is a very versatile card, and it can be a good selection for a frequent traveler who may want the ability to pay in full one month but not so the following month. The two biggest advantages of this card are no annual fee, and the cardholder actually receives a higher than 1:1 ratio for redemptions
Bonus Points. The consumer earns points with every purchase made, not just with travel purchases. Points can be used toward travel, or they may be used to purchase gift cards or earn cash rewards. See how quickly the perks can add up:
7,500 points = $100 statement credit
15,000 points = $200 statement credit
22,500 points = $300 statement credit
Having achieved the rating of "Best Airline Credit Card" by Card Ratings Consumer's Choice Awards for 2010, Blue Sky has many advantages like no annual fee.
Enjoy no blackout date or travel restrictions. This feature is especially important to the casual traveler who might be saving miles for a special trip at a special time.
No expiration dates and you can earn as many points as you like. Go ahead and SAVE! There are no penalties such as having to use your points by a certain date. And if you use your card frequently, no one is going to tell you that you are maxed out on the number of points you are allowed.
Theft and accidental damage protection. One of the nice features of Blue Sky is Purchase Protection when the card is used for eligible purchases. Items can be protected against theft and accidental damage for up to 90 days from the date of purchase.
Free Rental Car Collision Coverage. How many times have you rented a car and was unsure whether or not to sign up for the expensive additional collision coverage? You do not have to make that decision when you use your Blue Sky from American Express, because that protection is provided at no charge!
Assured Reservations. Probably everyone who has traveled frequently for business has had this experience: you have waited in the security line at the busy airport for an hour; you barely make it to your gate on time just to have to wait on the tarmac for another hour; your flight is an hour late getting to your destination and you finally pull into the hotel. What? Over-booked? No room available? That nightmare is a thing of the past when you use your Blue Sky from American Express because all your hotel reservations are guaranteed.
With Blue Sky from American Express®, even if you are not the busiest frequent travelers, you can still enjoy a lot of perks offered to the higher-priced memberships.
