Is the Iberia Visa Signature Card Worth the Annual Fee?

Applying for the new Iberia Visa Signature® Card gets you a nice welcome bonus: Earn up to 100,000 bonus Avios. Earn 50,000 bonus Avios after you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. Plus earn an additional 50,000 bonus Avios after you spend $20,000 on your purchases within your first year of account opening.

Many U.S. households spend over $20,000 annually, so pocketing this nice 100,000 Avios package might not be an arduous task even if you don’t use the card for all expenditures (but it’s a good idea to track your credit card use to make sure you don’t miss out on this bonus).

This hefty two-part bonus might be your main motivation to apply for the card and pay the $95 annual fee. But keeping the card year after year makes sense only if you value its ongoing benefits.

Earning Avios with the

The latest reading of the New York City Recovery Index out of a possible score of 100.

New York City’s economic recovery looks a little different as we are now including real estate transactions as part of our revised methodology tracking the city’s return to normalcy. We have replaced the small business index applications data with pending real estate sales for the first time since we began creating the recovery index.

Esper and Milley appear to adopt different strategies to deal with Trump as election approaches ::

— The Pentagon’s two most senior figures were so angry about President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attack on senior military leadership earlier this month that they got on the phone with the White House chief of staff to express their dismay, according to several defense officials.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley spoke to Mark Meadows after Trump accused Pentagon leadership of waging wars to boost the profits of weapons manufacturers.
