Two interesting nuggets this morning. Chase and AMEX will both continue to offer cards, and there are some snippets about new cards coming down the pike. Here’s what we know:
Existing Chase Ink Plus cardmembers had reason to be concerned when Chase announced a new card with lower earnings. We now have confirmation on what they’ll do with existing Ink Plus cardmembers.
Marriott and Starwood continue to make much faster progress with integration after the announcement of the merger than I expected. After quickly moving to status match and give members the ability to transfer points, Marriott and SPG have another announcement that members are really going to enjoy.
