So I just added up all the credits to my account marked "travel credit $300/year" to make sure I had spent that (if not, was going to buy a delta gc before midnight). Current total is $367, and that's not including the one credit that's showing up under pending charges from last night's uber ride. Is this a glitch?

^That most likely will post to the 2017 travel credit. Once your December statement posts, everything else goes to the following year. So if you bought that Delta giftcard, it would apply to 2017

Hopefully not. I just bought a GC tonight for the same reason. Just got a refund on an uber ride a couple of nights ago. It doesn't indicate year, just travel refund.

I guess I'll find out.

Quote :
"Q: How often does the $300 annual travel credit apply?

A: You can take advantage of the $300 credit once per calendar year, based on your billing cycle. So charges that apply to your December 2016 billing period will count toward the 2016 credit, while those (also made in December) that apply to your January 2017 billing period will count toward your 2017 credit. If you sign up for the card now, you’ll be eligible to receive credits in 2016 and 2017, even if you haven’t yet been billed for 2017’s annual fee."

Just landed in sfo and enjoying my time in their centurion lounge.
Spending 4 nights at Grand Wailea Beach Resort - A Waldorf Astoria Resort on Maui, followed by 3 at Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, and then 2 at a Hyatt in Honolulu.
All were free including airfare.

Just booked my first ever business class award with miles, going to Munich this summer. Can't believe there are people that pay $7k one way for a flight.

People don't pay that, but corporations do.

Can confirm. Bought several business flights over seas for $$$. Best part is I get to use my personal credit card then expense it.

Still working on my citi aa biz card but since I have to cancel some cards tomorrow I figured I'd apply for a few more today.

Went for my 8th citi card, aa personal since I finally crossed the 24 month mark and got approved after calling the recon line.
Applied for my 4th alaska card (2nd biz) and I'll have to call the recon line tomorrow.
I'll probably apply for the Barclay AAdvantage Aviator Red once I cancel my Wyndham since it seems near impossible to get more than 2 Barclay cards at a time.

How did you like Kauai and the Grand Hyatt?

Fucking awesome!!! Got free bike rentals, tennis, room upgrade, champagne, and chocolates. The hotel also felt a little less commercial than Maui which was nice. Was able to bike to town and found a cool bar nearby for happy hour. Would highly recommend...

Looks like Chase now has a Chase Ink Business Preferred. 80k points for 5k spending in 3 months. 5x points for Internet, cable and phone dropped to only 3x which also includes travel, shipping, social media advertising. No bonuses for Office Supply Stores or gas like the Ink Plus.

Hung out at the Minneapolis airport lounge with the priority lounge pass via the chase reserve card.

Pretty cool.

Yeah the lounges vary but I've been to some super nice ones and some not so nice ones. Aside from DIA they've been at every airport I've been too. On average they're pretty nice. Free beer, snacks, and a quite place to work is always a plus. Plus you get to take a guest in with you.

The only one I've been to was a Delta one (maybe in Denver) and it was great. Open bar and finger foods had good selections.

This is prob rookie shit for this thread, but the Chase amazon 3% card is now 5% for Prime members, fyi

^That's nice. The official Amazon Store card is already 5% cash back but it's only cash back. Is the Chase Amazon card Chase points back? That would make it enough for me to switch.

Chase still lists 3% on their website, where do you see 5%?

It's a no-brainer for me to switch if its 5%

On Chases's website:



Now I'm confused between the Chase Amazon Card and the Synchrony Amazon Store card. They need to only have one.

My debate is whether to switch from the Amazon Synchrony Store Card (which gives you 5% credit back) to the Chase Amazon Card which now gives you 5% with Prime. I can't determine whether the Chase card gives you 5% points back that you could transfer to your Ultimate Rewards account. If so then it's a no-brainer. Chase points >>>> cash.

They are points

Also I noticed that with the amazon card you can use your chase points on amazon 100/$1, other chase cards on amazon are only 125/$1 (i don't know why anyone would use it like this)

^Yeah considering you can get 1:1 cash back with Chase points then use on Amazon I'm not sure why you would do that.

i think they are just assuming people won't notice, i actually made the mistake once on a $15 purchase and it wasn't until after the confirmation screen when i realized my mistake
