Here are today’s updates and top stories:
I just updated my review on the recently revamped affinity cards from Marriott and it has included trip cancellation and delay insurance (which is actually a great feature if you buy non-refundable tickets). But more importantly, the more I though about the fact that you can earn lifetime Elite Status and earnings from credit cards count, the more I concluded that this card was a no brainer if you are striving for lifetime elite status.
Just updated our recommended list for student cards. School is about to start and if you are a student, you “might” want to consider getting one because it is the only time you could get a no annual fee card with rewards even if you have no credit history.
A reminder that Starwood is now offering 30,000 bonus points for new applicants on their affinity cards. Deal expires 3rd September 2012.

I used to live in Japan years ago. It was a two hour train ride from Narita Airport to Tokyo via the Express Train! And when you travel with kids and have lots of baggage, the delivery service really came in handy. It is about time something like that was offered here.
To be honest, I doubt many will actually reach that. But with 5,000 bonus points for a 5 night stay, it might just affect your fall and winter vacation plans. Check it out.
