Which credit card should you use to pay your cell phone bill?

If you told me 7 or 8 years ago that I would one day buy a cell phone that costs a thousand dollars, I’d have never believed it. Mobile phones have gotten very, very expensive. Banks have responded to that trend and these days a number of rewards credit cards offer some type of cell phone insurance when you pay your monthly bill with your credit card. Free coverage beats paying for it monthly from…

[Expired] Biz Class Houston to Milan from $1673.93 round trip (maybe less?)

An email just hit my inbox from Thrifty Traveler Premium about a fare sale first reported by Mighty Travels at FlyerTalk: British Airways and American Airlines are offering some terrific business class fares during peak summer travel dates between Houston and Milan, with prices from $1813 round trip. When I saw that sale my first thought was that it can get even better: AARP members (anyone can join cheaply) can save even more, bringing the total down to $1673.93. If…

If you read this morning’s post (See: Is the IHG sky falling? My take on variable point pricing.), Greg noted that the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa only had one or two nights available on points…

Informed newbie turns Chase denial into approval. Here’s how.

This post is both a reminder (call recon when denied for a card!) and a story about how to get approved for a Chase credit card.  Do you remember the “informed newbie” named Ben?  When I last wrote about him, he had earned over 700,000 points from signup bonuses and was considering applying for the SPG Luxury Card (now called Bonvoy Brilliant): Over 700K and slowing down. Should Ben go for 125K more?  Since that…
