I am chugging through the spend from my last 100% successful round and I can proudly say my credit score from those 3 cards did not have much of an impact on the grand total. I have dropped down to 762 from 771 after my round. So now I start to plan my wife’s round for next month.
I offset mine and hers by a month to spread out the spend months over a little longer time. Right now she is sitting on a credit score of 756 that is in the “Excellent” range and more than high enough to pick up the 3 cards I have planned for her this round.
So what am I/we going to shoot for?
- The first one is Simple. Thanks to the simply awesome release of the new CitiBank Hilton card, that will be number one on my list!
- The next one is also a simple choice. It has been more than 24 months since she got the AMEX Premier Rewards card. I cannot wait to see if Delta has a Membership Rewards transfer bonus again this fall. Love the bonus points airfare is just tops and low spend ($2000) to get the points!
- The last one will be the Chase HYATT card.(EDIT: NOT MY LINK – HT to reader Perry – this link give you $75 statement credit after 1st purchase – it ONLY works when you start to book a room, but you do NOT have to finish booking for it to work – clear?) 2 nights free at any property they have is just perfect and she has never had this card.
Will she go 3 for 3? I expect so but time will tell. Either way my planning is sound, the timing is good and the result will be, after the required spend, 4 free hotel nights (including GOLD status with Hilton – SWEET) and 27,000+ points. She has a TON of Hilton points now with all the ones from the Bank of Hawaii cards from earlier rounds. I may toss in a AMEX SPG “OPEN” business card as well but will go for the personal card first then, the same day, do the OPEN business as I am sure I will have to call on that one for final approval!
I will report back how things go once the results are in! – René
