Sign-Up Bonuses

I am a total tech geek (well sure with my line of work I should be right?)! I love gadgets. Now not just any gadget (well…) but only gadgets that I can use. I am not about the most expensive gadget unless it does something so much better like my NOTE2 phone that I really do love and it is a perfect “phablet” (combo-phone-tablet) for me to run the blog when mobile. I have also talked about the other toys I travel with and they are all very useful and they come out of my computer bag at each hotel stop I make.

I also have a bunch of tunes in my phone and on my “real” tablet but the speakers in the devices are not the greatest. If I watch a movie the sound quality is disappointing. Enter the gadget above that you have a chance to win this week (plus qualify for the medallion status giveaway). The terms are the same they are EACH week and you can look at them HERE. So this is not an uber-high end sound speaker but being blue tooth is nice to put it anywhere in the room and enjoy my tunes! Very kool geek gadget!

To win this week, you have to pick what you favorite Chase card is. You can pick one of these or another one not listed just name it!

Have a great weekend everyone! – René

  1. So far, it’s my British Airways card. Will be using it in Europe soon with no foreign exchange fee and smart chip. Ink Bold is a close second!

  2. I use my Chase Freedom Visa and i also happen to be looking for a bluetooth speaker! I saw your tweet and it was meant to be! I just flew Delta back from Florida. Our first plane needed a part so we couldn’t fly that one and we only waited an hour before Delta brought us another plane to leave on at the next gate. Thanks for the great quick service too!!

  3. Freedom…gives me the freedom to maintain my UR points even if I shut down my Sapphire/Bold accounts 🙂

  4. Chase Marriott
    I can get more hard gifts for less points compared to airlines cards. Can’t say about ink or sapphire because I do not have those

  5. I use the Sapphire the most but would pick Freedom Visa – no fee, 5% categories, and UR points transfer to Sapphire for maximum flexibility.

  6. I only get to pick one?!?!?
    I’ll have to go with the Sapphire.
    The Ink Bold is a very close second.

  7. How does one choose? Chase Sapphire all around, ink bold at OD, freedom occasionally when good category points

  8. Chase Marriott. Only I wish I didn’t sign up in december and thus the whole “15 elite night toward your status” would be wipe out before start of new year.
    EDIT: From Rene @ Eva – you can get the BIZ Marriott (inside the personal link) and get 10 elite nights credit this year!

  9. The Chase Sapphired Preferred is my favorite. The 2x on airfare/ travel is actually worth more to me than 3x on airfare from AmEx, because I also get travel interruption and baggage insurance from Visa that are top notch.

  10. The Chase Hyatt Visa Signature card is great card to carry when traveling abroad because it has no foreign transaction fees. The sign up bonus of two free nights, smart chip protection and Hyatt Platinum status as long as one is a cardholder are also excellent perks.

  11. BA Chase because of the amazing 100,000 bonus miles sign up, ability to book award flights on partners without fuel surcharges and use 2-for-1 award certificate.

  12. Ink Bold fo sho although I’m less partial due to fairly recent developments that all are aware of.

  13. I might change my mind tomorrow, but as of late it has to be the Ink Plus; we’ve been racking up UR points!

  14. I have the Chase Marriott for the 70k point sign up bonus but my go to card remains the Delta Reserve.

  15. Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best in my book. Double points on travel? Awesome transfer partners?

  16. Sapphire is what I reach for when I’m not working toward something else, because a lot of my spending is on 2x categories – it’s my favorite.

    That said, right now in my wallet I’m carrying Freedom (for 5x gas and Starbucks) and United Club, which I got when the annual fee was waived and which I will retire when the annual fee comes due. (Putting some spend on the club card before calling to cancel.)

  17. I like the ink but I have also used the chase Quicken plus card for years and it has some good benefits.

  18. Honestly, my favorite is my Disney card. I enjoy the smiles I get when I pull it out. As for spend, the Sapphire Preferred is my go to for Visa transactions.

  19. My first was love was my Delta AMEX. But i hate to admit it here now it has to be my Chase WN As it earned me a companion pass

  20. Chase United since if I have no status there so at least if I have to fly United I get *something*.

  21. Chase United. United gets me almost anywhere I want to go, so I have no problem using the points.

  22. On list I like the British Airways. I also like the Hyatt for 2 nights at approval and the 1 night anniversary annual bonus.

  23. Chase Sapphire without a doubt. I still get comments about how cool/heavy it is on a regular basis and Hyatt transfers rock my world!

  24. Take a look in a different direction… the Delta SkyMiles World Debit MasterCard from SunTrust Bank. Granted, its reach is limited because SunTrust is a superregional bank, not a national one. However, their territory includes Delta’s global home base of Atlanta and the entire Southeast region.

    Why do I favor it? Sure, there’s a lot to love about the SkyMiles credit cards from American Express (I’ve held several over the years) but I prefer to carry a debit card (I use the jetBlue Card from American Express for car rentals for its low annual fee and extreme generosity with TrueBlue points) and it is one of the few which pays rewards for PIN-based debit purchases (including SkyMiles)!

    It comes with a basic but comprehensive identity theft protection package at no additional charge and I’ve never had a transaction declined when there were sufficient funds in my account, which American Express did to me when my account was current but I was in Australia and needed a hotel.

    The bottom line is this – the annual fee is in line with the SkyMiles credit card and there are no finance charges, ever, because of its debit nature.

  25. It is a toss-up for me between the Chase Freedom (no annual fee!) and the United MP Select Visa (3x United and I usually travel United for work based on where I live). They both earn me a good deal of points.
