Time to get a new Discover It card?

new Discover It

Discover’s Double Cash Back for a year promotion is pretty awesome, especially with the Discover It card.  For review, the Discover It card offers 5% cash back in categories that change each quarter (up to $1500 spend per quarter), and they have a high paying cash back portal (Discover Deals) for earning extra rewards when shopping online.  Often, portal promotions and quarterly 5% cash back categories overlap such that even better rewards are possible.  For…

Promiscuous transfer partners

Promiscuous transfer partners

My favorite points programs, by far, are transferable points programs. These are programs where points can be transferred 1 to 1 (or better) to airline and hotel programs. This makes it possible to cherry-pick the best opportunities. If you earn points in only one loyalty program then you may find that flight awards or hotel awards are not available when and where you need them. With transferable points programs, though, your opportunities are far greater.…

Why I (no longer) prefer 5% Orbitz Rewards over 10% Hotels.com

Orbitz Rewards

I began this post with a simple concept: “Why I prefer 5% Orbitz Rewards over 10% Hotels.com.”  The post idea was a reaction to Rapid Travel Chai’s post “Hotels.com 9% Cashback + 10% Rewards + Stack Coupons.”  Despite the fact that Hotels.com offers the equivalent of 10% back for hotel stays vs. 5% back with Orbitz, I have long felt that Orbitz’ rewards program was better than Hotels.com’s program.  Here’s why: With Orbitz you can…

The benefit multiplier effect

Benefit Multiplier Effect

Miles to Memories recently wrote about the powerful combination of AA elite status, plus the Citi Prestige card, plus the Citi AT&T card.  To me, the AT&T card benefits (3X points for online shopping), are a side note to the real story: The Citi Prestige card enhances the value of ThankYou points when used with American Airlines.  That makes it cheaper to get or maintain AA elite status.  And, AA elite status makes flying AA…
