Credit Cards And Finance / Chase CC Question
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:38:51 AM »
So I already have Sapphire, Hyatt, Amtrak and Slate and I want to get the Freedom to link the the checking account.
Do I convert the Amtrak to a Freedom or try for a new application? I'm not so sure they will allow a 5th card. 2 of these cards were recently opened further killing my odds of another approval.

On The Road / Hyatt vs Hilton vs Starwood
« on: July 17, 2012, 10:39:58 AM »
I'm trying to understand why so many on this site exclusively collect Hyatt and Starwood points for reward nights (ie: what am I missing here?)

Here are the arguments for Hilton:
Ease of earning pts (I can think of at least 6 credit cards (3 different issuers) that offer large signup bonuses; you can get over 350k-400k pts just from this. With Hyatt there is only the Chase card and also the SP total of 2 nights and 50k pts = 4 nights.

I use the Amex card earns 3 pts per $ on regular spending (6x for gas groceries etc) SP card earns only 1.07 pts. Hyatt hotel redemptions are lower but not 3x lower. This doesn't take in to account all the 6x spending categories the Amex has.  SPG only has 2 CCs total 50k pts. Isn't that one night in a top level hotel?

Hilton has more hotels in more locations. Hyatt and SPG top hotels are probably a bit nicer and SPG pts can be converted to miles at a decent rate but miles are easily obtained through other means. Anyone
