Keeping points in credit card program vs airline programs
« on: June 24, 2011, 09:07:37 PM »
I have 100k in chase sapphire and 100k in amex plat. Wouldn't it give you more miles and flexibility by keeping the points in the credit cards and using the cc sites to purchase tickets? Than to transfer the points to Continental airlines or delta?
Perfection is my goal, excellence will be tolerated.

Perhaps, but you get really lousy value that way.
