Pay off Your Balance Faster & Get Rewarded – Amex EveryDay® Credit Card

Summer is rapidly coming to an end. I know, it literally flew by, right? So, we’re making
the most of what’s left this summer to enjoy one last hurrah!

You see, it’s been a tradition of ours to take our oldest Mia to the happiest place on
Earth and stay at the beautiful Disneyland Hotel during her birthday in August. The thing
is, it’s pricey, and year after year the total seems to increase significantly. This year,
however, it was easier to plan for it thanks to our AmexTravel.com.

The good news is that we were able to use our Membership Rewards points towards
eligible charges made on our Card*, making room to save for this trip. But wait, it gets
better. We’ll be getting even more points on our hotel stay. Here’s how:

Get 2x Membership Rewards points on every dollar of eligible travel purchases—such
as prepaid hotel stays, vacation packages and cruises—when you use your Card to
book your trip through AmexTravel.com* (terms apply).

We’ll be redeeming the points from this trip for American Express gift cards*. Perfect for
holiday shopping — which is only four months away! The hubs is definitely going to be
so ecstatic about this. 🙂

Super excited to share something new we just learned about! It’s pretty neat, and you should totally take advantage of it, too… Many of you know that American Express is a credit card company, but did you know they’re also a great financial partner? And what does that mean exactly? Well in a nutshell, they often offer new features and tools that will help you stay on top of your finances — such as American Express MyCredit Guide. This tool is a new and completely free credit score tool that can be
used regardless of if you’re a Card Member or not. For us this tool is key, as we like checking our credit score often to know where we stand when we’re planning to purchase big-ticket items, such as a new car or to finance a family vacation.
And if you’re concerned about using this tool for fear it might hurt your credit score, don’t worry, American Express has you covered there, too! Using this tool will not hurt your credit score one bit.

 

We recently used the MyCredit Guide to check our VantageScore ® credit score by TransUnion ® , not just to see where we stand, but also to:
– Keep our credit in good shape
– Make sure our credit info is accurate
– Get insight as to what actions help our score and which ones hurt it via the tool’s score simulator

This tool is super easy to use. We just answered a few basic questions and within seconds our VantageScore ® 3.0 appeared. Can’t wait to check it weekly for peace of mind and to find out how we can continue to increase our score. Be sure to check yours at American Express MyCredit Guide. too!

Stay tuned for more!

Abrazos (hugs),
Gladys

We’re back and ready to share with you all another great perk on the Amex EveryDay Card!

As you all know, summer is literally around the corner. That means we’re in complete planning mode over here. Working on booking our 2018 summer vacation, road trips and weekend getaways, but guess what…Amex-Everyday credit card-blog-American Express-travel-rewards points

Amex-Everyday credit card-blog-American Express-travel-rewards points

Amex-Everyday credit card-blog-American Express-travel-rewards pointsAmex-Everyday credit card-blog-American Express-travel-rewards points-family travel-summer 2018

We’re earning 20% more points each month on our Amex EveryDay Card! If we make 20 or more purchases on our Card in a billing period, we’ll earn 20% extra points on those purchases*…so instead of 2x points on purchases at US supermarkets*, we could get 2.4x points (on up to $6,000 in purchases per year) so they add up even faster!

And here’s how we plan to use our Membership Rewards Points:

  • Gift Cards: Did you know you can redeem your points for retail, restaurant, entertainment or American Express gift cards?* We can definitely use these during our upcoming travels!
  • Pay off some of our purchases: Yes, we can pay off eligible purchases* by applying some of our points
  • Amextravel.com: We are going to plan our next vacation and use points for parts of it*.

We’re loving all these perks and being able to share them with you. Be sure to check back in to get more tips and perks that come with using the Amex EveryDay Card.

What if I told you that American Express has a card out that lets you transfer your credit card balances with absolutely NO balance transfer fees** on transfers made within the first 60 days of account opening and comes with a 0% intro APR** on purchases and balance transfers for the first 15 months (then a variable rate of 14.49-25.49%)? That would be beyond, amiright? Well, the Amex EveryDay Credit Card does just that and more. This card has tons of benefits. Many of which I wasn’t even aware of. Trust me when I say this: you and your family will be excited to have this card and start using it right away! We sure are.

 

American Express-AMEX Everyday Credit Card-Blog-The_Mother_Overload-Lily_Ro_PhotographySo hang tight. Over the next few months, I’m going to be sharing with you all some awesome tips we find along the way as we use our Amex EveryDay Credit Card.

Be sure to check back soon to get the scoop from us on more tips and perks that come with using our Amex EveryDay Credit Card. Hint: you’ll want to go grocery shopping more often. The benefits on this card are amazing! So stick around…

  • Sounds like a great credit card to check out!

  • candy April 11, 2018 Reply

    This sounds perfect for those who can’t pay off a monthly balance. Going day to day would perhaps control spending as well.

  • Rocio Ocampo April 11, 2018 Reply

    Wow! No balance transfer? That’s unheard of now & days .My hubby and I just got an Amex but I didn’t know that. Thank you so much for the info! Love the pics too!

  • Alexandra April 11, 2018 Reply

    Credit cards hate me b/c I pay the balance off every month and take their rewards $$$. Have never transferred a balance but they charge a fee to do this on top of the interest rate they charge for a monthly payment? Wow.

    • themotheroverload April 12, 2018 Reply

      Hi Alexandra, yes, but the AMEX Everyday card does not charge a balance transfer. 😉

  • Angela Amores April 11, 2018 Reply

    Super cute photos of you and your family. I love a good credit card with really good benefits for paying it each month.

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪
.
.
Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋

Sharing this throwback of a couple yrs ago. Crazy to see how much these two have grown but even crazier to see how much I see my sister and I in them. So grateful for you sis! Hope you have THE best birthday 🎂 . Check out our 80s pic from one of our Disney trips on my stories. Fanny pack and all. 😆😘

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .

Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
