It is just about that time of the year, that is time for my next round of cards. Last time I got a 50,000 point INK PLUS Visa card since I had a MC version and could get the new card bonus again with this “new” product. Yes, you can get another INK PLUS. The first one I got with my EIN or small business number and this second one with just my name as a sole proprietor for another small business I run (I build custom golf clubs in the summer and love to play golf too). 🙂
So now I may have to go for a 50,000 point INK BOLD visa or 20,000 point INK CASH to pick up more Ultimate rewards points since these are also “new” cards to me since I had the old MasterCard ones in the past. I just wish I could add another 40,000 Sapphire card as well.
Another idea is a 50,000 point British Air card. I got one back when they had the 100,000 bonus deal going but many are reporting success getting the current 50,000 point bonus. I love being able to have Avios points for American flights domestically as the redemption rates are very good and fees are low. I have had the 50,000 point Chase Marriott and don’t think they will OK me again there but I am in need of more hotel points now.
The other cards I am thinking about during the same day of application is possibly another AMEX card. I already have both a Personal Delta AMEX Reserve card as well as a Business Reserve card and both a Personal SPG card as well as a Business SPG one. I really don’t think I want to keep both SPG cards the more I think about it. What I do use a ton is my BlueBird that I pay my taxes and mortgage with (everyone MUST have a Bluebird btw).
I don’t have any Membership Rewards cards or points and need some so the most logical one to pick up would be an AMEX Premier Rewards Gold card to get 3x points on Delta flights plus another 1x by starting my booking for Delta seats at the AMEX travel site. Then I will still get an SPG point as well with CrossoverRewards.
Then my last choice I think I will toss in is a La Quinta card (not my link) as I have amassed a bunch of points from the spin game and another 40,000 points after sizable spend would be the icing on the cake.
On a side note, I will be withdrawing from the Chase Affiliate program as of this Friday and Lisa and I SO appreciate all the readers who supported our blog by using our Chase links for the past 2 plus years! – René
