The Best Credit Card For Spending On…

Without getting into signup bonuses and the fringe benefits of having each card here’s a refresher of which cards to use for spending on:

…Airline tickets:
In the US: American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card
Why: The Premier Rewards Gold card gives 3 Membership Rewards points per dollar with no limit plus you’ll get a bonus 15K points if you spend $30K on anything in a year (effectively 3.5 points per dollar).
Abroad: Chase Sapphire Preferred
Why: 2.14 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees.

…Car Rentals:
In the US: Chase United Explorer or Chase United Club (Click on Club tab)
Why: The United Explorer is one of the only cards to give free primary car rental insurance coverage in your home country. If there is damage to your rental car it will be covered without ever having to file a claim with your personal insurance. Most other cards offer coverage secondary to your own car rental insurance when renting in your home country. The United Explorer earns 1 mile per dollar though if you spend $25K in a year on United Explorer you get a 10K bonus for an effective 1.4 miles per dollar) while the United Club earns 1.5 miles per dollar everywhere.
Note that assuming you didn’t damage your rental vehicle you can switch your method of payment at the end of the rental to Sapphire Preferred to bump your earnings from just 1 mile per dollar to 2.14 points per dollar.
Abroad: Chase Sapphire Preferred
Why: Most cards give primary insurance when abroad but the Sapphire Preferred also gives 2.14 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and it has no foreign exchange fees.

…Dining out or catering an event:
Worldwide: Chase Sapphire Preferred
Why: 2.14 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar (or 3.21 on the first Friday of the month) and no foreign exchange fees.

…Gasoline:
In the US: Chase Ink Plus , Chase Ink Bold , Chase Ink Cash , American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card , Blue Cash Preferred Card® from American Express , TrueEarnings® Business Card from Costco and American Express , or TrueEarnings® Card from Costco and American Express
Why: 2 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on the Chase cards plus 1% cash back at select stations with MasterCard Easy Savings or Visa Savings Edge.  2 Membership Rewards points per dollar on the Premier Rewards Gold plus you’ll get a bonus 15K points if you spend $30K on anything in a year (effectively 2.5 points per dollar). 4% cash back on the Costco business card and 3% cash back on the Blue Cash or Costco consumer card.
Abroad: Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Bold.
Why: 2 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees.

…Gift Cards:
See “Office Supply Store Purchases” whether you want store gift cards or Visa/MC gift cards.
You can also read this post on gift cards from office supply stores or this post on Bluebird.

…Grocery shopping:
In the US: Blue Cash Preferred Card® from American Express or American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card
Why: 6% cash back on the Blue Cash though that’s capped at $6,000 of spending per year.  The Premier Rewards Gold card gives 2 Membership Rewards points per dollar with no limit plus you’ll get a bonus 15K points if you spend $30K on anything in a year (effectively 2.5 points per dollar).
Abroad: Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard or Chase Sapphire Preferred
Why: Take your pick based on your typical point usage between 2.22% cash back or 1.07 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar with no foreign exchange fees.

…Hotel stays:
Worldwide: Chase Sapphire Preferred , Chase Ink Plus , Chase Ink Bold
Why: Sapphire Preferred offers 2.14 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees. The Ink cards earn 2 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and you can earn cash back on top of the points at select hotels with MasterCard Easy Savings or Visa Savings Edge.

…Office Supply Store Purchases:
In the US: Chase Ink Plus , Chase Ink Bold , or Chase Ink Cash
Why: 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar
Abroad: Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Bold
Why: 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees.

…Purchases that may need to be returned, disputed, warrantied, or protected:
In the US: Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express
Why: Because there’s nothing better than knowing you’re fully protected and Starpoints are the best currency issues by an American Express card. This is definitely a post you should read for more on this topic.
Abroad: The Platinum Card® from American Express
Why: AMEX card with no foreign exchange fees.  Note that the Platinum card also insures against lost items and it also has a higher limit for protections.

…Rotating 5x Discover Categories:
Worldwide: Discover It
Why: 5% cash back and a bonus if you convert cash back into gift cards.  For 2013 Q4 all online spending (even Amazon Payments) counts.
There is no foreign exchange fee.

…Rotating 5x Freedom Categories:
Worldwide: Chase Freedom
Why: 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar without a checking account or 5.5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar with a Chase checking account. For 2013 these quarterly rotating categories included Amazon, Amusement Parks, Department Stores, Drugstores, Gas, Kohl’s, Lowe’s, Movie Theaters, Restaurants, and Starbucks.
Even if you are abroad the 5 or 5.5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar well exceeds the value of the 3% foreign exchange fee.

…Telecom/Internet/Cable/Cell Phone:
In the US: Chase Ink Plus , Chase Ink Bold , or Chase Ink Cash
Why: 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar
Abroad: Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Bold
Why: 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees.

…Transportation including trains, buses, taxis, limos, ferries, bridges, tolls, and parking:
Worldwide: Chase Sapphire Preferred
Why: 2.14 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar and no foreign exchange fees.

…0% Intro Purchase APR
In the US: Chase Slate Visa (15 months), or Chase Freedom (15 months), or Chase Ink Cash (6 months), or Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard (12 months), or Discover It (6 months).
Abroad: Discover It (6 months) has no foreign exchange fees.

…0% Intro APR for Balance Transfers
Worldwide: Chase Slate Visa or Chase Ink Cash
Why: The Slate Visa offers 15 months of 0% APR and doesn’t have a BT transfer fee.  The Ink Cash card only offers 6 months but having a balance on a business card doesn’t hurt your credit utilization.

…Purchases not in a bonus category:
In the US: Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express , or Chase Freedom with checking , or Chase Sapphire Preferred , or Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard.
Big spenders may also consider or Chase United Explorer , or American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card , or Chase United Club (Click on Club tab)
Why: Well this is complicated.  Take your pick based on your typical point usage between:
-1 Starpoint per dollar (which can be used at hotel or converted with a 25% bonus into miles).
-1.1 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar if you have Freedom with a Chase checking account with Freedom
-1.07 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar with Sapphire Preferred
-2.22% cash back with Barclays
If you can meet spend thresholds then
-Spend $25K per year on United for 1.4 miles per dollar
-Spend $30K per year on Premier Rewards Gold for 1.5 points per dollar
If you spend enough to justify the annual fee (which can be waived for the first year) you may want to look into the United Club card as all purchases earn 1.5 miles per dollar.
Abroad: Chase Sapphire Preferred , or Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard. Big spenders may also consider Chase United Explorer or Club
Why: Same as before but only including cards without a foreign exchange fee.
Alternatively: See this post for a more cumbersome yet rewarding everyday purchase strategy which was made even better thanks to Plink.

Of course, if you have a signup bonus threshold to meet that will always be the place to spend!

Rent The Runway rents designer dresses to wear for an event. They send you 2 sizes just to make sure that you’ll have a proper fit.
They also rent jewelry and handbags and they sell items as well.

I’m going to guess that my wife will definitely appreciate it if you open an account with this referral link 😀

In my American Express account there is an offer for a $50 statement credit for spending $100 at rent the runway.  Go to your account to save that offer.  Not all of my cards had it so be sure to check them all.  If you don’t see the offer you can call AMEX to see if a representative can find it and add it to your card.

Your credit card is charged when you place your order, so you can order now for an event next year and still take advantage of the $50 AMEX offer!

To give you an idea on prices on some dresses (found via the filter for knee ortea length+3/4 or long sleeve):
-Carmen Marc Valvo Gold Idol Gown Rental $185, Retail $1200
-Vivienne Westwood Anglomania London Tower Dress: Rental $90, Retail $620

Current AMEX Offers: Save At WalMart, Best Buy, Rue La La, Dell, Lowe’s, BP, Forever 21, And More

American Express is always running fantastic promotions.  Along with their incredible purchase protections it makes having their cards quite valuable.

Of course the big one is Small Business Saturday.  While this year’s promotion only offers $10 of free spending per card it will continue to work on authorized user cards which are free with cards like the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, or the Blue Cash Preferred Card® from American Express.
Frankly I’m happier with the promotion being $10 and continuing to allow authorized user cards to participate than it staying at $25 but disallowing authorized user cards.

At any rate here are the current offers I see when I login to my AMEX account, click on my Starwood card, and then click on “Offers for you.”

Be sure to save the offer to the card you want to use before spending on the card.

Step Up To The Plate: Hyatt Is Next To Devalue

2 Fridays ago United devalued their award chart. I had more thoughts on that here.

This past Friday Delta devalued their award chart. They devalue their award chart more often than the Browns lose a football game so I didn’t bother even covering that. There’s a reason they’re called Skypesos.

And now as expected Hyatt is devaluing their generous award chart. With high-end Hyatt hotels going for $750, $1,000, or even $1,500 per night the program was just too generous with the highest category topping out at 22,000 points per night. After all Hilton’s high-end hotels go for 95,000 points per night and Starwood’s high-end hotels go for 30K off peak, 35K peak, or 60K-70K points per night in all-suite hotels.

This FAQ page has the gory details.
-The cost for a category 5 hotel goes from 18K to 20K (11.1% increase)
-The cost for a category 6 hotel goes from 22K to 25K (13.6% increase)
-A category 7 is added at 30K points per night (36.4% increase)

The cost to redeem for a suite also goes up:
-The cost for a category 2 suite goes from 12K to 13K (8.3% increase)
-The cost for a category 3 suite goes from 18K to 20K (11.1% increase)
-The cost for a category 4 suite goes from 23K to 24K (4.3% increase)
-The cost for a category 5 suite goes from 27K to 32K (18.5% increase)
-The cost for a category 6 suite goes from 33K to 40K (21.2% increase)
-The cost for a category 7 suite is 48K (45.5% increase)

Additionally 22 hotels will be going up categories.  It’s a double whammy as you’re going to pay even more for the higher categories. Those include:
Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo from 2 to 3 (50% increase)
Grand Hyatt Melbourne from 3 to 4 (25% increase)
Andaz West Hollywood from 4 to 5 (33.3% increase)
Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile from 4 to 5 (33.3% increase)
Hyatt Place New York from 4 to 5 (33.3% increase)
Park Hyatt Melbourne from 4 to 5 (33.3% increase)
Andaz London from 5 to 6 (38.9% increase)
Hyatt 48 Lex from 5 to 6 (38.9% increase)
Hyatt Union Square New York from 5 to 6 (38.9% increase)
Park Hyatt Beaver Creek from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)
Park Hyatt Milan from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)
Park Hyatt Paris from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)
Park Hyatt Sydney from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)
Park Hyatt Tokyo from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)
Park Hyatt Zurich from 6 to 7 (36.4% increase)

The hotels that jump from 4 to 5 are especially painful because Hyatt cardholders will no longer be able to use their anniversary nights at those hotels. And they attack the main category 4 values including the Andaz WeHo/LA, The Park Hyatt Melbourne, and the Hyatt Place NYC. I’ve stayed at all 3 of those hotels and it definitely stings to lose them.  There is no longer a Hyatt hotel in NYC where you can use the anniversary night.

The hotels that jump from 6 to 7 are not surprises, these are the crown jewels of the Hyatt collection. The only real shocker is that the Park Hyatt Maldives, which can go for as much as $1,500/night with tax remains a category 6.

17 hotels go down in category. The few highlights include:
Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa goes from 6 to 5.
Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe goes from 6 to 5.
Hyatt Regency Maui goes from 6 to 5.

I guess on the bright side only 6 ultra high-end hotels will be in the new category 7.  That’s more fair than Starwood’s category 7 that includes many hotels that simply don’t belong there.  Though I’d have to assume that the new Park Hyatt NYC will open next year as a category 7 as well.

Worth noting:
-All Free Night Award redemptions booked before January 7, 2014 will follow the lower award chart regardless of the date of the stay..
-Any Free Night Award redemption booked on January 7, 2014 or after will follow the new Award Chart.
-Hyatt Gold Passport Customer Service will proactively deposit a point refund if you book a hotel that is going down in category.
-Any Free Night Award reservation booked before January 7, 2014 for stays starting January 7, 2014 can be modified through February 15, 2014 following the terms of the lower Award Chart. Any modifications made to these reservations after February 15, 2014 will follow the terms of the new Award Chart.

Next up: American and USAirways are due for a devaluation.

Seating is limited and all 4 seminars that I have run so far (Crown Heights, NY. Boro Park, NY. Lakewood, NJ, and Chicago) have sold out so don’t procrastinate!

Hope to see you there!

Excellent Lufthansa First Class Availability Next Year

Lufthansa typically blocks its partners from accessing their first class award space between North America and Germany until 15 days before the flight.

However they just started a new route, Toronto-Munich, and someone forgot to flip on the blocking switch.  The route starts 06/05/14 and there is incredible business and first class award availability.

-Under United’s current award chart a one-way business class award to Europe is 50,000 miles and a one-way first class award to Europe is 67,500 miles.

-Under United’s current award chart if you would want to go to Israel a one-way business class award would be 60,000 miles and a one-way first class award is 75,000 miles.

United.com isn’t smart enough to piece together the whole itinerary so you’ll have to do it yourself and have United call you to actually book it. Be sure to ask to waive the phone fee as it can’t be done online.

Ideally when searching for an award you’ll want to search for every segment separately.  After searching United.com for award flights from Munich to Tel Aviv I then searched for Toronto-Tel Aviv and found this (click to enlarge):

ua11

 

And then searching separately to get from NYC to Toronto:

ua12

 

All you’d have to do is give the United agent your desired flights (with the first class flight from NYC-Toronto) and it will price out at the same rate from NYC as it is from Toronto to Tel Aviv. The first blue box is the 40K coach saver award, the second blue box is the 60K business saver, and the third the 75K first saver. Note that the shorter Munich-Tel Aviv flight is coach.
If you find dates without NYC-Toronto availability consider using 4,500 BA Avios+$2.50 to book a flight on American from Chicago or NYC to Toronto.

Dates with Munich-Tel Aviv availability: June 15, 22, 23, 29, 30. July 1, 6, 7, 13, 20, 27. August 5, 26, 28. September 9, 14, 21, 22, 23, 28.  There is better availability for Tel Aviv-Munich but that return routing would require an overnight in Munich so you may want to find another routing back home.  Or use different miles-you can book a one-way award home on El Al with American or El Al miles.  You can book a one-way award home on Delta with Flying Blue miles. Etc, etc.

You can do the same thing for any other city in the world that you want to get to via Toronto and Munich to fly Lufthansa First Class.

Of course if you want to experience the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt you can always add on a flight from Munich-Frankfurt. It’s quite an incredible experience and come 02/01 it will get way more expensive with United miles.

Or book what DDF member AJK just did. Bali-Bangkok-Frankfurt in Thai First Class (free massage in Bangkok when flying Thai First) and then Frankfurt-Munich (which grants him First Class Terminal access)-Toronto in Lufthansa First Class before connecting onto NYC.
All that goodness for just 70,000 United miles.

Bear in mind that you can also get a free stopover and 2 free open-jaws with a round-trip United award, so if you’re going to Israel you can checkout some European cities as well for the same rate.

HT: Lucky and jmansour for the heads-up.

Bluebird Tweets On; WalMart ATM Gets Even Easier Than Before

The naysayers said it wasn’t sustainable, but 13 months later Bluebird from American Express is still going strong.

The Bluebird thread on DDF has over 6,200 posts, the most of any DDF thread.

Bluebird is a checking alternative where you can get free checks, pay your credit card bills, pay your mortgage, etc.  You need a social security number to get it but there is no credit check or hard pull.

Vanilla Reloads:
If your local CVS has Vanilla Reloads loading your Bluebird is easy. You get a $500 Vanilla Reload for $503.95 and load the $500 to your Bluebird online. You can buy up to $5,000 per day.
If you’re going for a signup bonus this is a no-brainer.
But let’s say just using your Starwood card and not trying to meet the $5,000 needed to have a total of 30,000 Starpoints. You are buying 500 Starpoints for $3.95. With the 25% bonus for transferring Starpoints into miles that’s 625 miles. That’s like buying miles for 0.63 cents each.
-You can use 60,000 ANA miles for a round-trip to Israel on United or USAirways without fuel surcharges. If you did that with Vanilla Reloads it would cost $378 for the 60,000 miles for the round-trip.
-You can use 25,000 Flying Blue miles plus $280 in fuel surcharges for a round-trip to Israel. If you did that with Vanilla Reloads it would cost $157.50 for the 25,000 miles plus the $280 in surcharges or $437.50 for the round-trip.
-You can use 90,000 ANA miles for a round-trip in business class to Israel on United or USAirways without fuel surcharges. If you did that with Vanilla Reloads it would cost $567 for the 90,000 miles for the round-trip.
-You can use 90,000 USAirways miles for a round-trip in business class to Asia without fuel surcharges. You can even get a free stopover in Israel for as long as you want along the way. If you did that with Vanilla Reloads it would cost $567 for the 90,000 miles for the round-trip.
-You can use 135,000 American miles for a round-trip in first class to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific without fuel surcharges. If you did that with Vanilla Reloads it would cost $850.50 for the 135,000 miles for the round-trip. That’s a flight that would normally cost $25,000.

Gift Cards at WalMart:
Yesterday at one of my local WalMarts I was able to load $2,000 onto 2 Bluebird cards using the ATM. Previously I had chosen to load my WalMart Money Card and the machine would require an override to load more than $1,800 within about 30 minutes.  When I had used the Bluebird option previously it didn’t work.  This time the “load Bluebird” option worked perfectly.  Even better, when using this option it had no problem with the $2,000 of back-to-back-to-back loading.  Plus it didn’t give me any errors and it seemed to work a lot faster than with the WalMart money card option.

If the ATM machine is broken at your local store be sure to file a complaint with WalMart corporate.

Today some people on DDF reported issues loading using a WalMart cashier so I went back to try that as well. I’m happy to report no issues at all. At customer service last time they asked if it was a gift card and I replied that it was a debit card with a pin, which is the truth. They said it wouldn’t work but of course it did. This time I just went to a regular cashier and loaded it with them without problems. On occasion a regular cashier won’t know how to do it-just tell them to use “70 action code” to process a Bliebird load, they should know what the means.

Gift cards at other stores:
I’m sitting on a nice pile of gift cards and Bluebird has a $1,000 daily load limit at WalMart so I also went to a grocery store to buy a money order. The store charges 58 cents for a $500 money order.  WalMart also sells money order and has a billpay option without going through Bluebird, but those are tougher to do thanks to the customer service counter often rejecting gift cards and frowning upon split tender transactions when you use more than one card at a time..
I had no problem splitting the charge using 4 gift cards to get a $500 money order for $500.58. I won’t be depositing it into a checking account with a bank at which I also have credit cards.

Many of these gift cards came from when Chase was still offering free gift cards. But I also have lots of gift cards from Staples and Office Max bought on Ink cards.
A $200 Visa gift card costs $206.95. At Staples you can get an automatic $3 rebate on each card thanks to Plink.
The pin on these gift cards is the last 4 digits of the card number, no need to set anything.

Again, if you’re just trying to reach the spend threshold this is a no-brainer.
But let’s say just using your Ink Plus, Ink Bold, or Ink Cash card and not trying to meet the $5,000 needed to have a total of 55,000 points. Thanks to quintuple points on cable, telecom, and office supplies you get 1,035 points for each card purchased.
You are buying 1,035 points for for $3.95 ($6.95 fee less $3 plink rebate). That’s like buying miles for 0.38 cents each.
-You can use 22,000 points transferred to Hyatt for a $1,500 villa in the Maldives. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $83.60 per night.
-You can use 30,000 points transferred to Korean for a round-trip to Hawaii on Alaska or Hawaiian. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $114 for the round-trip.
-You can use 30,000 points transferred to Southwest for about $570 worth of paid flights. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $114 for those flights.
-You can use 80,000 points transferred to United for a round-trip to Israel. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $304 for the round-trip. (Effective 02/01 this goes up to 85,000 or $323)
-You can use 120,000 points transferred to United for a round-trip business class ticket to Israel. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $456 for the round-trip. (Effective for tickets bought after 01/31 this goes up to 140,000 on United or $532. On partner airlines this goes up to 160,000 or $608.)
-You can use 160,000 points transferred to Korean for a round-trip in Kosmo Suites class to Asia. If you did that with gift cards it would cost $608 for the round-trip. That’s a flight that would normally cost $20,000.  Just be sure to enjoy the open bar with $200 bottles of scotch 😀
