Redemption remorse: Great deal or terrible mistake?

My job? I blog

Last year, I wrote about what at the time seemed to me like an awesome redemption: some people have the ability to redeem just 64,250 Capital One “miles” from cards like the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card or Capital One Spark Miles for Business card for a $900 Marriott gift card. That makes the effective return on everyday spend on a Venture or Spark Miles card 2.8% when used towards Marriott – one reason…

The best hotel credit card ever

What is the best hotel credit card there has ever been? If you’d say the old SPG card, I’d have been with you until the early hours this morning. If you’d have said the Hilton Aspire to me yesterday, I might not have argued with you much. And if you’re ready to call me a soulless shill for the credit card companies when I tell you that it is neither of those cards, just do us…
