Just found your site by looking at template-based photography site hosts...your work is absolutely amazing! I love your "Lifestyle" portfolio.

I've also enjoy browsing through your blog...I like how there is so much variety to it...I've added you to my list of feeds to keep up with.

Question about that card: I went to American Express and the very same card you mentioned says it comes with "No Annual Fee" and doesn't mention anything about those "pluses." I know I'm missing something somewhere, but I can't find it. Could you possibly give a link, or a number to call to find out more?

Amex is sweet! One of my favorite companies. I had this card for two years, and really never used all the benefits. I found the JetBlue Amex worked way better for me, due to my location in the country. http://www.jetblue.com/about/corptravel/about_corpOpenBusiness.html
You are totally smart to post this! Every photographer should have one of these in their pocket!

Hey Brandon!

Try this...

Darn, I have this card.. how did I miss this? Thanks for posting this Chris.


Great tip!! We use AMEX in our business already, but this card's perks are definitely worth the fee. Sweet!! Thanks!

Stacy Reeves

Hmm, that's strange.. On their website it says no annual fee.


Maybe that is something different? Thanks for the info, though!

I'm a big fan of Amex cards. Have you received your companion certificates? I'm curious because it used to be that they only applied to tickets booked in "full fare economy" class (which almost no one does). If they have changed this, its really a fantastic deal for couples.

Two other cards to keep in mind are their SPG card, which is the absolute best in terms of accumulating miles (1.25 miles per dollar), and their Delta one is a pretty close second (they ran a lot of 2x1 and 3x1 mileage specials on it).



ooooh ooh, good stuff man!

Hi, Chris!
Just a note to say HOWDY from your writer friend at Rangefinder Magazine. I've kept an eye on you and you've be blooming and growing at a wonderful rate! Take a minute and tell me what's new, okay? Maybe tell me THREE NEW THINGS!
And also, inquiring minds want to know if my personal writing and interviewing, for you helped you in any way. Are you going to WPPI this year? I hope so--I'll get you a latte or a merlot and we could chat. I am a speaker for the first time, in such a large forum. I have a masters class in --you could guess this! WORDS MAKE A DIFFERENCE! I call it SWAT--for Speaking, Writing And Teaching (about photography.) Check it out at WPPI online.
This post comes with all my best wishes for 2008! Smiles from CharMaine

Free 3 Credit Reports

There are a lots of card companies sending out cc's to people or business owners. Not all are attracted to this credit card for some reasons like annual fees and hidden charges

Best Credit Cards in Australia

Their are tons of great credit card offers sent on email. But the sad thing on it despite of the fabulous offers, most people don't tend to open when they see from the title itself that it was another credit card offer.
