The following Hilton Hotel co-branded credit cards with American Express have limited-time offers. The current AmEx policy is that applicants can only get one welcome offer, per card in your entire lifetime, so if you’re going to get one you might as well wait until one of these temporary bump-ups.

Hilton has some really nice properties, but the value of Hilton points depends greatly on what kind of hotels you are looking to book with them. I’ve seen some valuations around 0.6 cents per point, but I mentally mark them at 0.5 cent a point. That would make my personal valuation of 100,000 points at $500.

iPhone 6S Plus + New Apple Battery = Best Used/Frugal Phone?

Update 3/17: DailySteals just added new stock in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S at under $200 (Verizon + Fully GSM unlocked). Compare with Swappa.

More and more people are being scared away from paying $1,000+ for a new smartphone as they realize that every September there will be another one that is a bit newer and shinier. I think the absolute amount that the iPhone improves each year is getting smaller and smaller. If you’re not committed to staying on the bleeding edge, why not save some bucks?

I recently took advantage of the special pricing on iPhone battery replacements on my iPhone 6, and it definitely made a difference in speed (and of course battery life). They performed the battery swap in the Apple Store in about an hour while I shopped elsewhere. This made me think about what the current best value would be for an iPhone (functionality/price).

My choice as of mid-2018 is the iPhone 6S Plus. They currently start in the $220 range, compare prices at sites like Swappa (person-to-person) and DailySteals.com (refurb deals). You have Touch ID. You get the bigger 5.5-inch high-resolution “Retina” screen for easier reading. From a superficial perspective, it’s really hard to tell it apart from an iPhone 7 or 8 (especially with case). The speed is adequate, even if you update to the current iOS. Of course, this assumes that you add a new battery ($29) direct from Apple. (You even get a physical headphone jack!)
