Of course my interest in points and miles is all in the service unlocking amazing luxury travel experiences that I could never otherwise afford... but I have to admit that the intrinsic enjoyment of earning points through a well-executed credit card strategy is a genuine interest area as well. To put it more bluntly, I'm obsessed with credit cards. And while this blog is mostly a collection of personal rants, I do occasionally post stuff that may be useful to other credit card churners. Here's a list of those links, all collected in one place for easy reference.
-- How useful is the Charles Schwab Platinum's option to convert points to cash at 1.25 cents each? Pretty useful it turns out.
-- Sorry, the Hilton Aspire's $100 on-property credit at Conrad and Waldorf Astoria isn't very good.
-- The Delta Blue card isn't very good either.
-- Parsing the different flavors of the Membership Rewards program.
Bank of America
-- Want a free authorized user card for your Sapphire Reserve? There's a workaround for that.
-- Chase (via Hyatt) does offer some niche airline transfer options that people often forget about.
-- I didn't end up getting the Altitude Reserve card -- here's why.
-- Applying for a Korean Air Visa card.
-- Some changes to the Korean Air Visa, circa August 2018.
-- Back when the Cathay Pacific Visa had an elevated bonus, I wrote about why I wasn't going to get one.
-- I got rid of my City National Bank Crystal card, but not before some hand-wringing.
