  1. Isn’t there a Four Seasons in East Palo Alto, CA? Positioned surely for travelers associated with venture capital. Notwithstanding, that hotel makes as much sense as Shangri-La Compton.

  2. Now is the time to earn Chase is & Amex points. Why not cancel the AA Barclays card? I’m cancelling a bunch of my cards to make room for the big bonuses that will come as airlines and hotels compete to get travelers back. There will surely also be significant devaluations but if you’re not actively earning or holding the currency it doesn’t affect you?

  3. Since the Aviator Silver is not included in the reported list, it doesn’t seem like you missed out on anything.

  4. I haven’t spent hardly a cent on my Jetblue card since last December. No spend offer for this existing card holder either, so Im not sure spend is related.

  5. Four Seasons? Sounds like a nice place for a press conference.
    I don’t spend much on my Barclays cards but didn’t get any offers either.
