There have been so many killer mileage run deals like this one or that one as of late that I have no more dates I could possibly book up to take runs (ok a good problem to have). Part of it is due to personal family issues that may require my time next year so I cannot do what I like to do, that is book up 11 months out. So, for now, I am ALL booked up for 2013!
But that brings us to today’s SWAG Saturday question. Most of the time for me in the Midwest I have to look at a positioning flight to some place to get in on the deals and that is fine I can do that. Thanks to Chicago and Milwaukee deals my positioning is a tank of gas. But I have, like my May run out of Phoenix, positioned to my start city by air.
There are several good cards to help you do that. The big 3 are:
The funny thing about these 3 is all of them are “basically” the same idea. The idea is you can use the points to buy ANY airline ticket you want when you want (perfect for a positioning flight when on a mileage run). But each card says they are better than the other.
Barclaycard says the Arrival card is better than Chase Sapphire due to 2x on all spend and offer 10% points back. Chase says Sapphire is better since you get 20% off when redeeming your points for travel and you get 7% back on all earnings each year. US Bank say FlexPerks is better due to needing the least points (only 20,000) to get up to $400 credit.
To win this very nice Steinhausen Impulse dual time zone watch this week, and be the 1st qualifier for next year’s grand prize, that is Silver Medallion Delta status like Jonathan W won Monday (the T&C as always are HERE), all you have to do is this:
☀ Tell me what of the 3 cards above is the best card if you ONLY could pick one (I have all 3 🙂 ).
If you want to tell us why you think your pick is the best that is fine too but not necessary and if you agree or disagree with the perks of the other two cards being better or worse! Have fun – René
