get a new card that requires a big spend to maximize. there is a weird cap one bus card that has a big one if you spend $50k in six months. so you'd get 200k points plus the 2 pt per dollar so you'd end up with 300k points. which is just $3,000 but it's guaranteed return and would essentially get you 6% off the spend. weird that I've posted about cap one two posts in a row.

70k offer on Barclay arrival card... $800 worth of statement credit on travel purchases once you hit the $5k spend in 3 months. Seems güüd.

Got my first taste of the fruits of my churning labor on my business class flights to BKK and back from SGN.  My goodness can't imagine that flight back with the poors.

i'm looking at some delta award RT's to Europe, and i'm seeing a lot of economy RT's for 58k. is this a new thing? i thought 60k was the standard minimum.

You won’t be able to earn this sign-up bonus, let alone open one of these personal Southwest cards, if:

              -   You already hold a personal Southwest credit card
              -   You’ve earned a new card member bonus on a Southwest consumer credit card in the last 24 months
              -   You’re over 5/24 — meaning you’ve opened 5 or more credit cards in the last 24 months. This is a Chase policy that means there’s virtually zero chance you’ll be accepted for most of its cards if you’re over the 5/24 limit.

i'm very sad

thought about it, but it only goes until the end of the year, and you have to pay a fee of $69 (minimum) right away, and i've already booked a couple trips w/o a companion pass.


PASS!

I mean, the booked trips could likely still be rebooked.

Didn't seem like a good deal if you can go the 110K two card route.

yeah, I get 2x 2 year compy passes every 2 years but also realize that a lot of people don't plan out stuff like this. it's still a great deal if you can get a few SW trips in with your companion in 2019.

Seems like they are just trolling churners who worked hard to do the same.

Got the CP last year for this year already with their newest card. Oh well. If one can get this I don't see why you wouldn't.

Well, you get fewer miles and only get the comp pass for the current year. It’s not that incredible to be honest.

AA miles are easy to keep from expiring.  All you have to do is redeem or earn any amount of miles, and the expiration is pushed back another 18 months.

go to the AA mall and buy something from Home Depot, like a 50 cent bolt.
