I am giving away this week, if you will, his & hers power bricks because what I have found on my last trip with Lisa is that it is good to have TWO of these bricks as we all have our own phone, tablet et al!
So, the rules for SWAG Saturday are always the same and are HERE if you want to see them. Then on to my two part question. This morning from the post I talked about 5 great cards that you can earn points and spend on Delta with no blackouts. They were:
- Capital One Venture
- CitiBank Thank You Premier
- Chase Sapphire Preferred
All of these are great cards if you are willing to buy coach -VS- 1st class tickets, which most times, still cost a bunch of $$$. Also as I touched on, this is one of the perks of an airline point vs a spend point like cash because airline points when redeemed in a premium cabin can have MUCH greater value for the points.
Take Delta for example. If next July you get a business class ticket to Europe for 125,000 low SAVER level award compared to say buying the same ticket for over $4500 then those points are valued for this trip at 3.6+ cents each! Much higher than any of the “cash type” cards!
So now for feedback and a chance to win. I need from you two answers since I am giving away two great prizes.
Q1: due to the fact that finding award seats is getting harder and harder on all airlines do you value “cash type” cards more now
Q2: when you do redeem airline points do you tend to book coach or 1st/business class.
I need both answered for a shot to win via Random.org
tomorrow. Thanks and have fun! – René
