Two Walmart Promos: $20 Statement Credit or Earn 10x Points!

I absolutely love it when I can save money or earn extra points on some of life’s necessities since that makes it all that much easier to have wiggle room for some of life’s more fun things…like travel! A penny saved is a penny earned or something like that… Right now there are two different promotions going on for online Walmart purchases that can help you save on some necessities like groceries and school supplies. One is open to anyone with a Chase…

New Promo: Hyatt Credit Card Can Save You $20 at Whole Foods!

The Hyatt Credit Card is a very interesting rewards credit card in that I have it, I love it, I plan to keep it, but I hardly ever use it for charges. You can earn Hyatt points faster with Chase Ultimate Reward cards and then transfer those points into your Hyatt account than you can earn them with the Hyatt card itself. However, it has just a $75 annual fee, awards a Category 1-4 anniversary night each year that is…

Earn 10x Chase Points at Walmart.com This Month

Six more days. Y’all, school officially starts here in six more days. Not just meet the teacher or orientation night or whatever, but an actual real school day with a 7:10AM bus pick-up is in just six days. I have mixed feelings about this return of pre-dawn wake-ups, evening homework battles, never ending paperwork, daily lunch kit packing, the onslaught of extra-curricular activities, second grade best friend drama, and more, though the idea of getting back on a regular schedule…

Deciding Whether to Keep the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card

Late last summer, many of us were lucky enough to get in on the offer for 100,000 bonus Ultimate Reward points via the brand new Chase Sapphire Reserve when it was first introduced. Even though it had a $450 annual fee, it was an easy card to say yes to as it carried with it 100,000 sign-up bonus points worth 1.5 cents each when booked for travel through Chase, assuming you met the minimum spending requirement to trigger the bonus. It…

Four Great Ways to Use Two Hyatt Credit Card Nights!

One of my favorite credit card bonuses is ending today for good as the Hyatt Credit Card will change their sign-up bonus any minute now from two award nights to use at any Hyatt within one year of earning the awards, to 40,000 Hyatt points to use as you choose after hitting the spending requirements. For some travelers the points will be the more practical and flexible choice, but for others the two award nights represent a great way to experience somewhere…

The Points You Don’t Want to Use for Disney Stays

A little while back we won some nights at a fully staffed over-the-top villa in Jamaica via an online travel auction site. Then a month or so ago it all fell through, and with it so did our mid-summer family travel plans. We had won the villa at a real steal of a deal via a legit site and had gotten some friends pretty excited to travel with us. It was a true bummer when the folks who run the villa…

You Want to Apply for the Hyatt Card By Next Week!

One of my favorite credit card sign-up bonuses comes via the Hyatt Credit Card as it awards two award nights to use at virtually any Hyatt property around the world after you spend $2,000 on the card in the first three months. This means you can use those nights to stay at properties that would otherwise cost 30,000 Hyatt points per night such as the slope-side Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, the elegant Park Hyatt Paris Vendome, the Park Hyatt New…

Get Ready to Earn 5x Points at Restaurants and More!

The Chase Freedom is one of my very favorite rewards cards that has no annual fee because it packs such a big earning punch with its rotating quarterly 5x bonus categories, up to the $1,500 quarterly max. We now know that the upcoming 2017 Chase Freedom third quarter 5x bonus categories will be restaurants and movie theaters! Movie theaters may not be that exciting to most of us, but restaurants are a popular bonus category since it counts not just sit-down…

Applying for the Ink Preferred and Its 80,000 Sign-Up Bonus Points

It has been a few months since I have applied for a new rewards credit card, and recently it was time for that to change. I selectively apply for rewards credit cards for their sign-up bonuses and ongoing perks. I actually have a number of cards on our ‘2017 application wish list’, but first up was applying for the Ink Preferred Business Card. I love Chase Ultimate Reward points as they are transferrable to United, Hyatt, Southwest, Singapore, British Airways, Marriott, and several…

Avoiding Basic Economy Fares While Using Chase Ultimate Reward Points

I recently used some Chase Ultimate Reward points to book flights at a value of 1.5 cents per point thanks to having a Sapphire Reserve. I normally transfer my Ultimate Reward points to partners such as Hyatt, United, Singapore, British Airways, etc. and use them to book awards via respective travel partner award charts. However, in this case it was fewer points to book our flights using points at 1.5 cents each than to book a 25,000 mile United saver award, and…
