They may.  Do you really need to rent a car in HNL for your ebay business?


Lol. Good point.
I agree that it shouldn't be added to the OP bec wont realize the requirements but technically if someone has a legit business then its a great benefit.

Chase Continental OnePass Plus Mastercard (Free for one year, then $95/year)
: 1 free bag for cardholder and 1 traveling companion.

The CO website says you have to purchase the ticket on the CO CC. Anyone get the free bag when purchased on a different card?

Yup, the CO website is wrong.
Also agents can manually take off the baggage fee if you show them a card, so that works even for free bags for free secondary cardholders.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

CapitalOne has a World card
I can't find a way to sign up for that card.

ETA:
It seems like this card has it:
http://www.capitalone.com/creditcards/cash-rewards-credit-card/?linkid=WWW_1010_CARD_TGUNS10_CCBRWALL_C3_03_T_CP04317EW

Can't find any other ones..

This list is awesome but I think you should explain
"American Express Platinum Business Charge Card: $200 credit to spend every calendar year on the airline of your choice." more.

It only for incidentals not towards airline tickets,, i think some may be confused
A penny saved is 1 cent

Chase Ink Classic gives 2 pts for gas, as does Amex PRG.
Of the two, would the general consensus be that I'm better off purchasing gas using the Ink?

That would depend on what you value more UR points or MR points.

Yeah... that was behind my question. Are UR points 'better' than MR points?

I'm sure you don't want to hear this, but, like most times, the answer is it depends. The first (and perhaps dispositive) question you need to answer is who you will likely transfer the points to, i.e. look at the transfer partners and decide. That will, in many cases, answer the question for you.
