12/31 housekeeping in no particular order. Did you remember to:
1. Spend your airline fee credit (and targeted bonus 2014 American/USAir credit) on your AMEX Platinum card?
2. Finish your Chase Freedom card spending for Q4? 5-5.5 points per dollar on up to $1,500 of spending from Amazon and department stores. You can buy an Amazon.com email gift card or you can buy a physical Amazon.com gift card. Once you have the gift card code you can save it to your Amazon account via this link where it will never expire.
Or buy a gift card for other stores from Amazon like American Eagle, Express, Forever 21, Hollister, Nordstrom, Southwest, Starbucks, or Whole Foods.
3. Buy 20K Starpoints at 25% off? If you need to top off a mileage account with the 25% transfer bonus or if you need stays at some hotels it can be a deal. For example if you need 25K more miles for an award ticket it may be worthwhile. Or if you want to stay at a hotel like the Four Points Midtown NYC tonight the paid rate is $1,151 with tax but you can use just 12,000 points for that same room!
