160K Ultimate Rewards vs 200K Capital One “Miles”: Which is the best big bonus?

Last night on Twitter, a reader posted the question: Which offer is better for $50K in spend: the 200K offer available at the time of writing on the Capital One® Spark® Miles for Business card or the targeted 160K Ultimate Rewards points offer that’s available on the Chase Ink Business Preferred card (by targeted mailer only)?

Nick’s first destinations: Lanikai Beach and Uncle Clay’s House

Late last night (for most readers) I made it to Lanikai Beach on Oahu. In a move that likely shocks you as much as finding out that the southern-style smoked beef and pork sausage sandwich on United’s in-flight menu is really just a hot dog, I used 7,500 Citi Thank You points transferred to Turkish Miles and Smiles to book a United flight to what will long be one of my favorite places on Earth,…

(EXPIRED) $200 Lowe’s GC + 1K miles (maybe) for $180 via Groupon

Groupon is offering a deal to get a $200 Lowe’s Gift Card for $180. This deal works through Swych — you’ll buy a voucher through Groupon that will enable you to buy a $200 Lowe’s GC through Swych. I’m not sure whether that will be eligible for a portal payout, but if it is and you stack with the back to school portal promos, you could score over 1,000 United or American miles as well. The…

A profitable stack at Dell (sort of)

We recently reported a targeted current Amex Offer available on some business cards that is good for 10% back at Dell. Those who found the offer on a Business Platinum card could make out even better since that card offers a twice-annual $100 credit for Dell purchases (subject to registration, available once between January and June and once between July and December). You could currently do some stacking with those discounts that turns at least one deal into…
