The last resort
At least, the last one I'll ever be able to afford.
Exclusive Resorts, which offers access to about 150 Überrentals worldwise, has signed a deal with American Express, whose Centurion cardholders (annual fee: $2500) will now be able to sign up for Exclusive's membership package at less than the usual $375,000 fee and will get double the usual rewards bonuses for staying at Exclusive's properties.
Meanwhile, for the rest of us, Discover and Wal-Mart are teaming up on a store card.
