Credit Cards / Would you rather take a 5% discount or earn points?
« on: June 25, 2020, 06:37:16 PM »
If someone offered you a 5% discount on a 24k purchase for a check versus a credit card, what would you do? If it makes a difference, I have SPG and Chase points.

Thank you

I am thinking about flying from NYC area to YYZ.
Currently, tickets are about $200 round trip. I have a lot of points in Chase as well as Bonvoy. Is there a cheaper way to fly?

Thank you

Credit Cards / Can I convert a legacy SPG Amex to Brilliant?
« on: November 21, 2019, 09:09:49 AM »
I currently have the old SPG credit card for Personal and Business.
Is there a business version of the Brilliant?
Am I able to convert it to the Brilliant without applying for a new credit card? 
If yes, does it make sense to do it that way or should I apply for a new credit card? I have had my SPG for over 10 years now and I dont want to close it down and lose its credit history.





Thank you

What is the best way to monitor if a deal pops up between two particular cities? I used to follow dansdeals on twitter but I wasnt intersted in all the items on sale. I am looking for flights, and particular flights between NYC and Toronto. Any ideas?

Thankyou

I need to open up a new credit card for a new business. What is the best one for me to go with? My other cards are currently: Ink Bold, Amex Plat, Amex SPG (business and personal), Saphire Preferred and JP Morgan Reserve.

Re the recommended card, is there any good sign up bonus for it currently? Or should I wait a bit.

Thank you

I am thinking about going to Manhattan in a few weeks. I have SPG and HH points with Gold status in both of them. I also have an amex platinum card as well as a JP Morgan Reserve card.
What is the cheapest way for me to stay in one of the fancier hotels (ST Regis, etc....)?

Thank you

I may be flying on united from ewr to TLV next month. Currently on the flight I am looking at their are regular business mileage awards available. Not the savers. So regular mileage is 180k points. Is it better for me to purchase it that way or to purchase a regular ticket and use mileage for an upgrade? I would want to have a guaranteed upgraded seat.

Thank you

With the demise of SPG Amex, I am probably going to be shifting my business and personal purchases to a different credit card. However, I do not want to lose the length of time that these credit cards have been open for. What is a good AMex card for me to convert these cards into?

Thanks

With the devaluation of SPG cards, I am trying to decide which card to standardize on for my personal and business.
Currently my personal cards are the Amex SPG , Chase Sapphire Preferred, Amex Platinum, and the JP Morgan Reserve. Most of my personal expenses are on the SPG and I spend about $100k per year on it.
For business I have the Amex SPG and the Chase Ink Bold (or whatever they renamed it to). Most of my business purchases (about $900K per year) are on the Amex SPG and about $100K per year are on the Ink Bold.

I will not be able to keep track of using separate cards for different stuff based on bonuses, etc... So I am trying to decide which is the best card for me to standardize on for personal and business.

Thank you

Is there any twitter or website that gives alerts when there are amazing deals with hotels? (sort of like dansdeals with airfare). There used to be the price match search egine, but that program is long gone.

Thanks

I am looking into getting an additional business credit card and I am trying to decide which one to get. Here are some details:
I currently have these cards:
1 - Amex Platinum - Dont really do that much spending on it currently
2 - Amex SPG - That is where I do the bulk of my spending - can be close to $50K per month
3 - JP Morgan Palladium - Used more as a backup card
4 - Ink Bold Business - I use this for the ones where I get bonus and when I get bonus through URMall

Recently I have been having statements close on my Amex SPG with a high balance, so I want to get an additional business card so it wont hurt me.
I purchase a lot of tech items through dell, office stores (which I use Ink bold), ebay, etc.... I also purchase a lot of items from high end clothing design companies and retailers.
I travel a nice amount, but I mainly would use the spg points for hotels, etc.... So far I have not really redeemed that many points. Between UR and SPG I have close to 1.5m points. But recently I have started redeeming them more often.

Any suggestions as to which card I should go for as to which will give me the most bang for the buck? If the card doesnt have a great promotion right now, I have no problem waiting, I wouldnt grab a card just because it just so happens to have a good signup bonus right now even though long term it isnt the best card for me.


Thanks

What does UA serve for kosher the overnight EWR - TLV flight in Business First?
Besides the main meal, what else do they serve?

For those with an Ink Bold card; do you earn the office supply bonus for purchases made from staples.com, officedepot.com, etc...?


Thanks

I remember hearing something about applying for mutliple credit cards one after the other, that it only comes up as one hard pull.

Anyone knows anything about that?
