So I have a Southwest card that I've done really well with since 2012. Now my new company flies nothing but Delta (Because Detroit, ATL, NYC, Etc.). Do I get a Delta card now too, SD?

Do you pay for your flights on your personal card?

Usually not. I can, but I don't. I usually go right through my company (I hate big expense reports) and accumulate points on the Delta website.

NYC expense reports are insane and I usually don't get reimbursed until two weeks afterwards. My anxiety goes nuts knowing that $ is on there. I know it pays off in the long run, but.... I prefer convenience sometimes.

if you travel a lot, sounds like you are leaving a lot of points on the table.

are you using the same sw card you got back in 2012?

I haven’t paid for a SW flight for years when we go on vacation now, but you’re right, I’m definitely leaving some points out there.

Yeah, she had/has one too before I met her. We should probably combine ours, right?

anyone else get an offer from chase to open a checking account and set up direct deposit and you get $300.  if you open a savings acct and xfer $15k to it and keep a balance in it for 3 months you get $200.  If you do both they'll throw in another $100, so $600 total.  seems easy enough.  :dunno:

i get different offers from them all the time.  did open a checking acct once.  easy and good, like all the chase stuff.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

I got that offer. set up 47 different accounts and funded them all with $15k cash. six months later and i'm now rolling in dough with this money scheme.
