Chase Ultimate Reward (UR) Points are extremely flexible. I wrote a blog post a few weeks ago comparing them to American Express Membership Reward Points. This post is on different options available for UR points that make them unique and Awesome!
Combining Chase UR Points
You can Transfer Chase Ultimate Reward Points to another Chase UR rewards account (another Chase Card). This can be another Chase Card owned by you or spouse/domestic partner. My wife has two Chase Cards – The Chase Sapphire and Chase Ink cards and I have a Chase …

As I blogged in my last post, 50,000 mile Credit Cards are becoming more and more common. It is still a good deal for a sign up with a spend requirement. I listed a few in my last post. Here are a few more I found since then:
The Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard® – 20,000 award miles after first purchase. 30,000 points after spending $5,000 in your first 90 days. Companion ticket Annually. Annual fee of $79 ** NEW OFFER **
British Airways Visa Signature® Card – 50,000 Avios …
In my opinion, a mega-credit card bonus is something that gives you 100,000 Miles or Points. (Still waiting on my targeted 100,000 MR card, American Express!!). There have been a few off late – the 100,000 Avios British Airways Card earlier this year and the 100,000 point CapitalOne Venture Card last summer. Both offers are gone now. The current best offers are in the 50,000 point range. Here are a few 50,000 Point offers I found out there:
Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card– 50,000 points after spending $1000 in your first …

The two most flexible reward programs that are not locked-in to an Airline or a Hotel Chain are Ultimate Rewards from Chase and Membership Rewards from American Express. Both are excellent programs with great redemption opportunities and multiple ways to earn them. This post with compare and contrast some of the key points of these two rewards programs.
The first thing that is common between these two programs is that they are both not locked to a particular Airline or Airlines (like Miles and More is to Lufthansa, Swiss and …
I am canceling my American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card. The fees is due and $175 seems steep, given the recent changes in my card strategy (more on that in a later post). Furthermore, canceling the card makes me (more?) eligible for other sign-up bonuses from American Express, including (fingers crossed) the elusive, by invitation only 100,000 point Platinum card. Don’t get me wrong, the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card is an absolutely fabulous card with great features. (The current offer for a new card is 25,000 Membership Rewards …
American Express Rewards is one of the best reward programs out there. The flexibility and variety of rewards available is out of this world. I have in the past redeemed Membership Rewards for Macy’s Gift cards (in a convoluted way, though) and for hotel stays. Just last week I redeemed them for airline tickets. The tickets for my flight were pretty steep and reward availability for Saver Rewards (you know the advertised 25,000 mile round trip awards) were unavailable. I did not want to shell out the chase, so I …
Chase Card holders with most United Credit Cards need not lose hope. If you are within 5,000 PQM (Elite miles) of reaching your Elite miles target for the year and you cannot make the last flight you needed to get over the threshold, you have an option!
Elite qualification is something some of us have to fight for all year. As a (un)road warrior, this is an annual process for me – scrounge for every PQM to get to (for me) 50,000 PQM in a year for qualifying as a Gold …

*** OFFER IS NOW UPTO 40,000 MILES. WAS ORIGINALLY 50,000 ***
Every time there is a merger between airlines, I have personally leveraged the opportunity to make sure I get miles in both airlines’ accounts. When the merger does happen, the miles get combined, raising their value. 40,000 miles each in two separate airlines accounts is much less than 80,000 in one airlines. I did this way back with the NorthWest-Delta merger, then with the Continental-United merger and am going to do for the potential US Airways-American Airlines merger.
I already have …
I found three new credit cards that not only have a sign-up bonus, but also offer extra miles for transferring you balance. This is a unique opportunity to earn miles for transferring balances to potentially lowers interest rate APRs and earn some miles along the way! Not too many cards offer miles for balance transfers.
I will be the first to point out that none of these are great deals. I am personally not getting any of these cards as I do not have any balance to transfer. Without the transfers, …

I never realized this but American Express actually offers three different cards for Delta. I was asked by a reader to help him pick the right card and I did the following comparison for him.
Check out the AmEx page for the three Delta cards here: Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
The three cards are:
Gold Delta SkymilesCredit Card
Platinum Delta Skymiles Credit Card
Delta Reserve Card
The three cards offer, as the names suggest, different levels of rewards.
Gold Delta Skymiles Credit Card:
This is the base card of the three. No annual …
