A number of banks have their own points programs, and in some cases it’s possible maximize value by combining the benefits of multiple cards.  For example, you can use one card to earn more points and another card to get the most value from those points.  In this post I’ll take a look at card combos from Amex, Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo.

Why I’m suddenly choosing cash over points, and why you shouldn’t

cash vs points

Several months ago, I signed up for the Bank of America Premium Rewards card.  The reason?  It is the perfect “everywhere else” card… for me… in my particular situation.  An “everywhere else” card is the card you use when you’re making a purchase that doesn’t qualify for 5X rewards with this card or 3X rewards with that card.  It is a card that offers great rewards for all spend, regardless of what you’re buying and…

There is a new targeted welcome offer out for the Blue Business Plus card good for 20,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months. Again, this won’t be available for everyone, but it’s a great offer if you have it available as this card has such a strong value proposition for ongoing spend and no annual fee. Furthermore, I don’t see any lifetime language in the terms, meaning that it might be possible for…

There’s a new offer out this morning to earn an extra Membership Rewards point per dollar at through 12/31/17. This would be in addition to your normal earnings. My wife and I found this on almost all of our cards that earn Membership Rewards, so this one looks to be widely available.
