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…

How to Advance Yourself Delta SkyMiles

Once upon a time there were a number of programs that were willing to advance you points before you earned them, or at least let you lock in an award as long as you ponied up the required amount of miles and points before travel started. There are still a few that do that, though to my knowledge fewer than in the past. However, one such program that kicked off this year comes from your Delta Amex cards, as they…

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…

Best No Annual Fee Credit Card for Simple Points Earning

Right now I use different credit cards for our dining expenses, travel charges, gas purchases, groceries, hotel-specific spending, department store purchases, and yet another for any remaining larger purchases since I am working on a minimum spending requirement or two, or actually three. Oh and that doesn’t really count the cards my husband is using. Our system at the moment is a little complicated in order to maximize our spending. When my toddler was a baby it wasn’t this complicated because…

The Included Roadside Assistance Coverage You Need to Remember

Yesterday I did something I rarely do, well, other than the whole flying in a private jet thing. The other very unusual thing I did was driving from our house north of Houston all the way to Hobby Airport in South Houston. I get some flak on the blog from time to time when I talk about how I just almost won’t go to Hobby. It’s not the airport itself I have an issue with, I just really hate driving through…

Why We Turned Citi ThankYou Points Into Hilton Honors Points

Remember that time I transferred Amex Membership Reward points to Delta SkyMiles? A couple years ago I would have taken odds against me ever doing that since SkyMiles wasn’t generally thought to be a great frequent flyer program, and I had more lofty goals for my Membership Reward points than transferring to Delta for an economy domestic saver award. But, it made financial sense at the time, and I don’t regret it one bit. Now I am in the same situation with Citi…

Big Changes Coming to FlexPerks Points and Travel Redemptions

For the last few years a potentially valuable but somewhat under-the-radar credit card rewards program has been the US Bank FlexPerks program. Via this program and the US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature Card you have been able to get as high as 2 cents in value for points redeemed for flights. Not only that, but the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature awards as many as 2x – 3x points per dollar in some bonus categories making it easier to rack up…
