-Building Credit And Credit Card FAQs: Your Questions Answered
-Final Hours To Earn 100K+ Chase Points On 1 Card; Here Are 22 Ways You Can Use Those Points!


The Chase Sapphire Reserve took the mileage world by storm last year by offering 100,000 signup points and a boatload of other benefits. Chase took a $200-$300MM loss just in the 2016 Q4 on the card, so it’s no surprise that the massive signup bonus is coming to an end.

Here’s How To View Credit Card Offers On This Site

Currently the card offers 100,000 points for spending $4,000 in 3 months. Effective 1/12 that will go down to 50K points for spending $4,000. This offer will go offline sometime on the 11th, so try to apply by 1/10 to lock in the 100K bonus. The 100K bonus should be available in branch until 3/12.

You can use the 100K points for $1,500 in travel or you can transfer them into airline miles or hotel points.

The $300 in travel spend and $100 Global Entry fees that are refunded count towards the $4K threshold. You’ll even get the keep the bonus points for travel spending that is refunded. The annual fee does not count towards the spend threshold.

Note that if you have opened up 5 or more consumer credit cards in the past 2 years it can be difficult to get approved for most cards from Chase. Read more about 5/24 here.

Annual fee:

The card has a $450 annual fee which is not waived for the first year. The effective annual fee though is much lower thanks to the travel credit.

Travel credit:

The Sapphire Reserve offers a $300 automatic travel credit to offset the annual fee.

The credit is good for any kind of travel related spending including airfare, car rentals, hotels, Disney tickets, Cruises, subways, taxis, and much more. Read a list of confirmed transactions that will trigger a credit here.

As the credit is per calendar year that means you’ll get $600 of travel refunds in your first cardmembership year with a $300 credit in 2017 and a $300 credit in 2018.

You must finish 2017 travel spending before your December 2017 statement closes and you you can start 2018 travel spending in December 2017 after your December statement closes.

Combined with the signup bonus that means you can get $2,100 in travel in your first cardmembership year.

After the first year, the annual travel credit effectively lowers the annual fee of the card to $150 per year. That’s only $55 per year more than Sapphire Preferred and it comes with a lot of valuable benefits that make the card a keeper:

Sapphire Reserve offers 3 points per dollar on all of the travel items listed in this post. It also offers triple points on dining including restaurants, fast food, coffee shops, bars, lounges, and cafes.

There are no foreign transaction fees.

You’ll be able to access over 900 clubs worldwide with Priority Pass and you can bring unlimited guests with you into the lounge for free! That includes lounges with kosher food and wine in Newark and Tel Aviv. You can call Chase to enroll in Priority Pass or you can enroll online here. You can even pay to access Priority Pass lounges before you get your membership card and you can call Chase to refund those lounge entries!

The Newark Art & Lounge in Terminal B is located before security and doesn’t require a boarding pass, so you can stop in for free kosher food and wine at any time!

Every 4 years you can get a $100 credit for a 5 year Global Entry membership which also includes TSA pre-check. That means you can skip the lines and forms when flying back from abroad and you can leave your shoes on, laptops in their bags, and go through metal detectors when flying from the US. It makes flying so much easier!

Additional cardholders cost $75/year and include a Priority Pass membership with free guesting privileges as well.

Increased cash back or miles:
The Sapphire Reserve allows you to use all your Chase points for 1.5 cents each per dollar towards travel.

The ability to choose between 1.5 cents per dollar or mileage transfers make Sapphire Reserve an incredibly versatile credit card. Thanks to their ability to be used at a high value as miles or when redeemed directly from Chase for travel, I called them “Hybrid points.”

You can choose to hunt for award tickets bargains and then transfer them into real airline miles instantly. The value of airline miles can be extremely high for one-way tickets, last-minute tickets, and first class tickets.

Or you can just use them for paid airfare, hotels, car rentals, or activities at a value of 1.5 cents each.

You can earn even more by spending on other Chase cards and transferring those points to Sapphire Reserve:
-If you have a Freedom Unlimited card you earn 1.5 points per dollar everywhere that are worth 2.25% towards travel when you transfer them to Sapphire Reserve.
-If you have a Freedom card you earn 5 points per dollar on rotating categories that are worth 7.5% towards travel when you transfer them to Sapphire Reserve.
-If you have Ink Plus or Ink Cash card you earn 5 points per dollar on office supplies, gift cards from office supply stores to hundreds of other stores, and telecom that are worth 7.5% towards travel when you transfer them to Sapphire Reserve. Gas, hotel, and dining purchases also have double point bonuses worth 3% towards travel.
-If you have Ink Business Preferred card you earn 3 points per dollar on travel, shipping, internet, cable, and telecom, and advertising on social media and search engines.that are worth 4.5% towards travel when you transfer them to Sapphire Reserve.

That means you can be earning between 2.25%-7.5% back everywhere.

If you already have a Sapphire Preferred card you can downgrade it to Freedom or Freedom Unlimited to take advantage of their spending benefits and you can always transfer those points to Sapphire Reserve to make them 50% more valuable.

As a Visa Infinite card, it also comes with some benefits like discounts on car rentals, including 30% off at Silvercar.

Sapphire Reserve comes with primary rental car CDW insurance in every country in the world. Most other cards only have secondary coverage when you rent a car in your home country. This means that if you damage your rental vehicle you must file the claim with your own personal insurance policy first, and only if they won’t cover the damage will the credit card cover the damage. Even additional cardholders get primary coverage when they rent.

Most credit cards also exclude countries like Israel from coverage, however all Chase cards cover you worldwide, including in Israel. And they will give you a letter of coverage stating that you are covered in Israel so that you don’t have to argue at the rental car counter that your Chase Visa does give CDW coverage.

Plus you get triple points on car rentals, meaning there is no better card out there for car rentals!

-Roadside Assistance: Coverage for up to 4 incidents per year. The battery in my 2011 Altima died on me twice in the past month and Chase sent out assistance with ease. And yes, I did finally buy a new car battery.

-Trip cancellation insurance is free.
Trip cancellation reimburses up to $10,000 per person, up to $20,000 per trip, and up to $40,000 per year if you need to cancel for injury, death, or sickness experienced by you, a traveling companion, or an immediate family member of you or your traveling companion. Other covered reasons include severe weather, military orders, terrorism, jury duty, home dwelling becoming inhabitable, quarantine, or financial insolvency of the travel agency or operator of your trip.

Other card benefits include:
-Price protection. Find a lower price in a store or online on a non-auction site within 90 days and get back up to $500/item and $2,500/year.
-Return protection. Return an item to a store that won’t take back an item for up to 90 days ($500/item, $1,000/year)
-Purchase protection: 120 days of protection in case of damage or theft on items you buy ($10,000/item, $50K/year)
-Warranty protection: An extra year of warranty coverage on purchases ($10K/item, $50K/account)
-Lost Luggage Protection: If your checked or carry-on bags are lost you can be reimbursed by up to $3,000 per person.
-Trip Delay Protection: If you are delayed that either requires an overnight stay or is more than 6 hours you can be reimbursed for up to $500 in expenses per person.
-Baggage Delay Protection: If your bags are delayed by more than 6 hours you can be reimbursed for up to $100 in expenses per person per day, for up to $500 per person.
-Travel Accident Insurance: Coverage if you are injured or killed on a trip.
-Visa Infinite Concierge is included free of charge.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve card earns Ultimate Rewards points and has the ability to transfer points into miles.  It also gives you the ability to transfer points from fantastic no annual fee cards like Chase Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and Ink Cash into miles as well, as those cards can’t transfer points directly into miles without having the Sapphire Reserve, Sapphire Preferred, or Ink Plus card.

You can also transfer points at an equal ratio to your own or to one authorized user’s airline and hotel programs:
-United (Star Alliance)
-Singapore (Star Alliance)
-British Airways (OneWorld)
-Korean (Skyteam)
-Air France/KLM Flying Blue (Skyteam)
-Southwest
-Virgin Atlantic
-Hyatt
-Marriott
-Ritz Carlton
-IHG

Point Currency:

Chase Ultimate Rewards offer instant and fee-free transfers to top-notch mileage and points programs at a 1:1 ratio.

You can transfer points to a household member’s Chase card or to an authorized user’s airline/hotel programs.

You can also transfer points to Chase business Ink cards like Ink Plus and Ink Cash where you can transfer from there to other business owner’s cards and/or programs.

Transfer partners include:
United (Star Alliance) is an excellent currency. They never charge fuel surcharges, they allow one-way awards for half the mileage, they have short-haul awards for 10,000 miles, they often run discounted award promotions, they allow for an “excursionist perk“, and they have dozens of partners to fly on, most of which can be booked on their website.
British Airways (OneWorld) is awesome for short-haul awards, though partner American has been stingy with award space of late. Awards start from just 4.5K miles. Flights to Israel on Air Berlin are just 60,000 miles round-trip with no fuel surcharges. They allow one-way awards for half the mileage. There are no close-in or expedite fees. You can cancel an award for as little as $5.60. Infants are only charged 10% of the miles on international trips instead of 10% of the full fare like US carriers charge. Plus they don’t collect fuel surcharges on American within the western hemisphere, on Qantas from or within Australia, on Air Berlin, Aer Lingus, Alaska, or LAN and you can transfer points to Iberia to limit fuel surcharges there as well.
You can read more in this post on everything you need to know about BA Avios. And you can see 110 places you can go to nonstop from NYC with Avios.
Korean (Skyteam) offers unbeatable first class availability (A380 First Class Trip Report here) and they also have true bargains on partner travel, just 30,000 miles to fly round-trip on Hawaiian or Alaska to Hawaii in coach or 60,000 miles in first. And it’s just 20,000 miles to fly to Alaska in coach or 40,000 miles in first. You can even get a free stopover on the way to or in Alaska! If there is Delta saver availability you can even fly to Hawaii, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands round-trip for just 25,000 miles in coach or 45,000 miles in business. 
Air France/KLM Flying Blue (Skyteam) offers promo awards from rotating North American cities to Europe, Israel, and Russia from just 12,500 miles each way. Regular awards to Israel are just 25K miles each way, though some fuel surcharges apply on most airlines except for Delta.
Singapore (Star Alliance) offers private walled-in first class suites that can only be booked with their miles. A suite one-way from JFK to Europe is 57,375 miles. Travel to the US48, Hawaii, Alaska, Europe, and Israel can all be had on the cheap. There are no close-in booking fees and changes and cancellations are very cheap. Fuel surcharges apply when flying on most airlines besides United. More info here.
Southwest offers a value of about 1.7 cents per point towards award travel, though that rate can now vary. Plus you get 2 free checked bags, free flight changes or flight cancellations. and you can even get a point refund if the price of your flight goes down.
Virgin Atlantic has some niche uses with awards on Delta.
Hyatt is a very powerful hotel currency. They have a cash and points option that offers some excellent values and more importantly those stays earn points, elite stay credits, promo credits, and you can use suite upgrades on cash and point stays as well. It remains far less expensive for high-end hotel stays than any other hotel program.
-You can also transfer points to Marriott, Ritz Carlton, and IHG.

-Generally speaking you’ll want to use the 1.5 cents per point option when redeeming for round-trip coach tickets booked in advance. You’ll generally want to transfer to miles for business class, first class, last minute and one-way coach awards. You’ll be better off with 1.5 cents per points for IHG and Marriott hotels, but Hyatt points can often be worth more than 1.5 cents each, so you’ll want to transfer points to Hyatt in those cases.

Will you be signing up for Sapphire Reserve before the 100K bonus goes away? Hit the comments!

Business charge card:

As this is a business card it won’t show up on your personal credit report.That means it won’t against you for Chase’s 5/24 guideline. It also means that spending on the card won’t hurt your credit score like it would on a consumer card.

As it’s a charge card without a defined credit line it’s not subject the limit of 5 American Express credit cards per person.

You don’t need to be a traditional “business owner” as you might think of one to get a business card.

For example if Joe Smith sells items on Ebay or on Amazon, or has any other side business/hobby and wants a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures he can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith Sole Proprietorship” as the business name. You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field as well as in the social security number field.

Final Hours To Earn 100K+ Chase Points On 1 Card; Here Are 22 Ways You Can Use Those Points!

The Chase Sapphire Reserve’s whopping 100,000 point bonus ends this afternoon for online applications.

You can view credit card offers by clicking on the “Credit Card Offers” tab on top of the DansDeals banner to view links for card offers. You can click on the link that says “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

Here’s How To View Credit Card Offers On This Site

You need to spend $4,000 to get the bonus within 3 months, though the card counts the $300 in refunded travel expenses and $100 in refunded Global Entry/Pre-Check fees towards the $4K. If you visit Priority Pass lounges before you get your physical membership card you can get those charges refunded and they will also count towards the $4K. The Newark Art & Lounge used by El Al is located before security and doesn’t require a boarding pass. You can stop in there for free kosher food and wine at any time!

When you’re done spending $4,000 you’ll have between 104K-112K points depending on your spending categories.

If you and your spouse each signup you can quickly have double that. I helped a friend apply and get approved for a Sapphire Preferred, Sapphire Reserve, and an Ink Business Preferred card via 3BM and now he has a quarter million points!

What can you do with the 104K-112K points you’ll have after opening a Sapphire Reserve and meeting the spend threshold?

There are endless possibilities, but here are 20 in no particular order.

Point transfers to all airline and hotel partners are at a 1:1 ratio.

1. You can redeem them for $1,100 in cash.

I hope you don’t, but the option is available if you just want to take the cash and run.

2. You can redeem 110K points for $1,650 in travel.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve allows you redeem for travel at a value at 1.5 cents per point, a 50% bonus from cards like Chase Freedom. (Or course you can still spend on Freedom to earn 5 points per dollar and then transfer them to Sapphire Reserve to make them worth 1.5 cents each).

You can transfer points from your other cards and from cards belonging to your spouse or additional cardholders to your Sapphire Reserve as well to redeem them for 1.5 cents each.

That includes airfare, hotels, car rentals, or travel activities redeemed via the Chase travel portal.

You can also call to book awards not found on the portal, like to book Southwest flights.

You can save tons of miles this way when redeeming for inexpensive coach flights.

The same United flight that is 49.9K Chase points…

…would cost 170K United miles+$46:

3. You can transfer points to United to book 11 short-haul one-way awards (10K each) or 8 long-haul domestic one-way awards (12.5K each).

Even last-minute flights are just 10K-12.5K miles. I’ve redeemed for last-minute flights that would have otherwise cost more than $1,000 for 10K miles, talk about a good use of miles!

4. You can transfer points to Korean to book 4 round-trips to Hawaii (25K miles) on Delta or 5 round-trips to Alaska on Alaska Airlines (20K miles).

There are no fuel surcharges.

JFK-Honolulu nonstop for 25K miles round-trip:

The 25K coach award and 45K first class award within North America applies for any travel within “Mexico, United States (including Hawaii), US Virgin Islands, Canada, and Puerto Rico” Read more about this option here.

5. You can transfer points to Korean to book a first class suite from JFK to Asia or Asia to Tel Aviv for 80K miles:

You can fly in a Kosmo 2.0 walled-in suite on a brand new 747-8 from JFK to Seoul for just 80K miles+$104. If you were paying cash for the flight it would set you back over $10,000, so this is a value greater than 12 cents per mile:

ke

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

80K miles plus $23 is enough to fly in first class from Seoul to Tel Aviv. Or fly from Asia to Tel Aviv for 35K in coach or 62.5K in business.

ke

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. You can transfer to British Airways for 24 one-way international short-haul awards (4.5K each) or 14 domestic short-haul awards (7.5K each).

You can fly short hauls like London-Milan, Iguazu Falls-Sao Paulo, Johannesburg-Victoria Falls, Hong Kong to Taiwan, Melbourne to Sydney, and between most cities within Europe for 4.5K Avios.

You can fly between New York and places like Bermuda, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Miami, Orlando, Montreal, Pittsburgh, or Toronto, or between Miami and the Bahamas or Cancun, or between LA and Cabo on OneWorld partner American.for 7.5K Avios.

7. You can transfer to British Airways for 7 one-way domestic first class short-haul awards (15K each).

These used to cost 30K Avios as American coded their domestic first class flights as true first class, costing 4 times the price of coach. Now they have been reclassified as business class which means it only costs twice the price coach.

There are no fuel surcharges.

If you find nonstop MileSAAver award space on AA.com then BA can book it. For example NYC-Miami in business class is 25K AA miles or just 15K BA Avios. Plus BA only charges $5.60 to refund your award versus $150 to refund an AA award.

8. You can transfer to Singapore for 5 one-way flights on United in a lie-flat business class bed between Newark and Los Angeles or San Francisco (20K miles each).

Singapore only charges 20K miles each way for domestic business or first class on United. The same rates apply for United’s premium service between Newark and Los Angeles or San Francisco!

There are no fuel surcharges.

9. You can transfer to Singapore for 2 one-way flights in a couples suite between JFK and Frankfurt.

You can fly in Singapore suites class from JFK to Frankfurt for just 57,375 miles one-way with the 15% online booking discount that is applied after selecting a flight.  This is truly an aspirational award and Singapore service is second to none.  You’ll even have access to the Virgin Clubhouse in JFK with good kosher meals as well.

Fuel surcharges are about $200.

You can read my trip report on flying Singapore to Paris here.

There are single and double suites available. This is the double:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10. You can transfer miles to British Airways for 9 one-way nonstop from the West Coast to any Hawaiian Island.

You can fly from the west coast nonstop to Hawaii on AA or Alaska for just 12.5K Avios each way.

Note that you must call BA to book awards on Alaska.

There are no fuel surcharges.

11. You can transfer to Hyatt for 4-9 nights in resorts like the Park Hyatt Maldives.

The Hyatt award chart is great for high-end hotels.  It caps out at 30K points for real gems like the Park Hyatt Sydney, the Park Hyatt Paris, and the Park Hyatt Zurich that can go for $1,500 per night.  Other hotel chains charge double, triple, or quadruple that amount of points for their high-end properties and they’re not nearly as good as the Park Hyatt chain.

Park Hyatt Sydney

A real sweet spot for Hyatt points are cash and points for category 6 hotels. These include real gems like the Park Hyatt Maldives, Grand Hyatt Kauai, the Andaz Maui, the Confidante Miami Beach, the Hyatt Carmel Highlands, and the Andaz 5th Avenue.

???????????????????????????????

Andaz Maui

The Park Hyatt Maldives can also go for $1,500 per night but it’s just 25K points!

 

You can stretch your points even farther by using just 12,500 points plus $150 per night for a category 6 hotel.  Best of all it’s considered a paid stay, so you qualify for promotions and can use suite upgrade certificates.

hyatt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are also incredible uses for lower categories.

Category 3 hotels include the Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach Honolulu, the Hyatt Place LaGuardia, the Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo, the Hyatt Palm Springs, CA.

You can stay in a category 4 property for just 15K points or 7.5K points+$100 in hotels like the highly rated Andaz Papagayo Resort in Costa Rica, the Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, the Park Hyatt Toronto, the Hyatt Regency Kowloon, Hong Kong, the Park Hyatt Seoul, or the Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile.

Category 5 hotels include the Andaz West Hollywood in LA, the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort an hour south of LA, the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort just north of San Diego, the Hyatt Regency Maui, the Hyatt Place NYC, and 2 of my favorite Hyatt hotels, the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, and the Park Hyatt Melbourne.

Park Hyatt Buenos Aires

12. You can transfer points for 2 or 3 one-ways from Bangkok to Sydney.

Want to get to the Park Hyatt Sydney and see the opera house from your bed?

When Mimi and I flew around the world in 2010 we started off in Thailand and then flew down under to tour Australia for a few weeks.

It’s just 40K miles for a 10 hour flight in Thai first class from Thailand to Australia. You’ll even get an hour long massage for free in the Bangkok first class lounge.

There are no fuel surcharges.

13. You can transfer points to Korean to fly round-trip from Australia to New Zealand in an Emirates First Class A380…with a shower spa onboard.

While you’re down under, hop from Australia to New Zealand in gilded style on Emirates and brag about taking a shower 39,000 feet in the air.

An A380 first class flight from the US to Dubai would run 210K Korean miles.  There are cheaper ways of doing that with miles from JAL, though you’ll need Starpoints to transfer to JAL.

14. Transfer to Hyatt to help earn a Southwest companion pass.

Until 3/31 you can transfer hotel points to Southwest and they will count towards the 110K points needed to earn a companion pass valid for unlimited uses 12/31/18.

While transfers from Chase don’t count for companion pass, transfers from Hyatt do.

50K Chase points transfers into 50K Hyatt points. 50K Hyatt points transfers into 30K Southwest points and those points will count towards the 110K requirement.

If you transfer 100K Chase points to Southwest via Hyatt you’ll have 60K points towards the 110K requirement.

If you don’t have any Starpoints or Marriott points to transfer to Southwest you would need 200K Chase points which would become 120K Southwest points via Hyatt and you would have the companion pass.

Points earned from the Southwest credit cards also count towards the 110K requirement.

15. Transfer to Southwest points.
There are no aspirational awards with Southwest, but you will get a decent value per point towards award travel.
Plus you get 2 free checked bags, free flight changes and flight cancellations. You can even get a point refund if the price of your flight goes down. There are no fuel surcharges.

A flight from Long Beach to Vegas is just 987 points+$5.60 one-way, a value of 2.4 cents per point. And it can be cancelled at any time with no penalty!

16. Transfers points to Singapore and fly round-trip on United between the US48 and Alaska for 25K miles in coach or 40K in business class.

United charges 35K miles to get to stunning Alaska in coach and 60K in business.  Transfer miles to Singapore and they’ll book those same flights for just 25K or 40K.

There are no fuel surcharges.

Never thought of going to Alaska?  Read Something Fishy’s epic trip report with his trademark stunning pictures and you’ll want to start planning a trip.

17. Transfer points to Singapore to fly round-trip on United between the US49 and Hawaii for 35K miles in coach or 60K in business class.

United charges 45K miles to get to the paradise also known as Hawaii in coach and 80K in business.  Transfer miles to Singapore and they’ll book those same flights for just 35K or 60K.

There are no fuel surcharges.

18. Transfer points to Singapore and fly one-way on United between the US and Israel for 37.5K miles in coach or 57.5K in business class.

Singapore charges fuel surcharges on most airlines, but not on United.

While you may be better off redeeming points for a round-trip, one-way tickets are notoriously expensive and can be a great use of a mileage redemption.

Note that if you want to travel on other airlines you may do better transferring to United, where fuel surcharges are never collected.

You’ll need to call Singapore to book.

19. Transfer points to Air France/KLM Flying Blue to book travel to Israel for 12.5K-18,750 miles each way.

Air France and KLM have monthly promo awards where you can book travel to/from the US and Europe, Israel, or Russia for just 12.5K or 18,750 miles each way in coach or 46,875 miles in business class.

You can view this month’s promo awards here.

Fuel surcharges can add $90 in coach or $220 in business.

20. Transfer to United for the excursionist perk.

Sure you can use 85K miles to fly from Tel Aviv to NYC.

But why not make life more interesting and fly to NYC and Alaska for the same amount of miles thanks to the excursionist perk.

21. Transfer to British Airways and fly from JFK to Vancouver in Cathay Pacific business class for 37.5K Avios or first class for 50K Avios.

Cathay Pacific has the most comfortable seat, bed, and first class Pajamas in the sky.

You can fly in business class nonstop from JFK to Vancouver for 37.5K Avios in business class or 50K Avios in first class each way.

I’ve flown this route in 2011 and 2016 and it’s by the far the best flight within North America. Vancouver is also a fantastic city with amazing sights and great kosher food. I keep finding myself wanting to return and I’ll do just that for Pesach this year where I’ll talk more about some great redemption options.

22. Bid on United exclusive experiences.

United auctions off some incredible experience with their miles.

Until I tossed the first pitch before game 7 of last year’s World Series I thought that my coolest use of miles when redeeming 25K United miles to steal 2nd base in middle of the 7th inning.

Another reader then bought their son a Bar Mitzvah present that he’ll never forget with their United miles.

Have you used United miles to bid on experiences yet?

 

Points can also be transferred to Virgin Atlantic, Marriott, Ritz Carlton, and IHG.

AMEX Targets More Accounts For Incredible Sam’s Club Offer!

Update 1/19: This offer is now full if you haven’t saved it to your account already.

Update 1/12: 5 of the $500 Mastercards split among 2 targeted cards for $2,024.70 after $500 off:

Originally posted on 1/10:

AMEX Offers are a great way to save money.

There is currently an offer on primary and secondary AMEX Business cards to get 20% back from Sam’s Club. You can get up to $250 back with this offer per targeted card! The offer runs through 1/31 and is only valid in-club.

If you aren’t a member you can join here for $45 and get a free $25 Sam’s Club gift card.

Previously many of my cards were not targeted, but yesterday dozens more of my secondary AMEX business cards were targeted for the offer.

To see if you have this offer in your account just login to your AMEX account, click on any of your cards to go the activity page, click on “AMEX Offers For You,” and save the offer to your account.

If you also have multiple cards with the offer don’t rush to save the offer to your account!  Open up the Offers page for each card in a separate tab in the same browser.  Then go between the tabs to save the offer to each of your targeted cards.  Otherwise once you save the offer to one card it disappears from your other cards.

You can use this link to access the old AMEX Offers interface, which some people find easier to save multiple offers with the multi-tab method.

Always check all primary and secondary card offers, as secondary cards will often have offers that the primary card does not. You can add secondary cards in your own name to your primary login or you can create a new login for other secondary cards.

Note that you only have to worry about an offer disappearing from other cards when they are registered to the same account. Saving an offer won’t affect cards that have their own login.

If you mess up and don’t save the offer to a card you can always remove a card from one login and make a dedicated login for it to register it. Alternatively you can remove the card that has an offer saved to it and the offer will reappear for the rest of the cards registered to that account. Once you properly save the offer to all cards on that account you can re-register the deleted card back to the same account.

There are many ways to maximize this offer:

Officially the 20% back offer is only valid for one transaction per card, but many DDF users report receiving 20% back on all transactions made on the same day. Of course this is a YMMV (Your mileage may vary) situation and you might only get 20% back on the first transaction made on a targeted card.

-If you shop at WalMart or Sam’s Club you can buy Sam’s Club gift cards that also work at WalMart. $1,250 of gift cards will effectively cost you $1,000. You can also sell the gift cards to sites like CardPool or CardCash.

-You can buy Disney gift cards that can be used for Disney theme park tickets, resorts, water parks, cruises, adventure vacations, hotels, annual passes, merchandise, dining, shows like Cirque du Soleil, activities, and more.. Sam’s Club sells $150 of these gift cards for $143.88. You can buy 9 of these for $1,294.92 less $250. That’s $1,350 of Disney credit for $1,044.92, an effective 22.6% discount.

-You can buy Southwest gift cards. Sam’s Club sells $150 of these gift cards for $142.98. You can buy 9 of these for $1,286.82 less $250. That’s $1,350 of Southwest credit for $1,036.82, an effective 23.2% discount.

-Other discounted gift cards include iTunes, Regal Cinemas, and more.

-A variable load $500 Mastercard costs $504.94 with fees. You can only buy 1 variable card per transaction. If you have 2 targeted cards you purchase 5 Mastercards in 5 transactions. Charge 2 of the Mastercards to each card. On the 5th transaction ask to split the payment between your 2 targeted cards. In total you’ll get $2,500 of Mastercards for $2,524.70 less $500=$2,024.70. Effectively you’re buying $2,500 of gift cards with a 19% discount. You can use the Vanilla branded $500 Mastercard to buy money orders from select post offices and grocery stores, though that is always YMMV. You can use any 4 numbers as the PIN for the card. Or you can always use the card for everyday spending, as a gift, or as a donation with an effective 19% discount. I used this method yesterday and will update the post with the results.

-A fixed $200 Mastercard costs $206.48 with fees. You can buy multiple of these per transaction. If you buy 6 of the $200 cards you’ll pay $1,238.88 for $1,200 of Mastercards and you’ll get 20% back, or $247.78, for a total of $991.10. Effectively you’re buying $1,200 of gift cards with a 17.4% discount. You’ll have some leftover rebate with this method, so you can also purchase a Sams Club/WalMart gift card of $11.12 in the same transaction for $8.90 to finish off the $250 maximum cash back per card.

You can split a transaction with up to 5 targeted AMEX cards, so you can buy more than 6 of the $200 Mastercards at a time if you want.

You can use the Vanilla branded $200 Mastercard to buy money orders from select post offices and grocery stores. You can use any 4 numbers as the PIN for the card. Or you can always use the card for everyday spending, as a gift, or as a donation with an effective 17.4% discount.

-A variable load $500 AMEX costs $504.48 with fees. I haven’t tested these yet, but I’d assume that these are also only 1 card per transaction. If you have 2 targeted cards you purchase 5 AMEX gift cards in 5 transactions. Charge 2 of the AMEX gift cards to each targeted card. On the 5th transaction ask to split the payment between your 2 targeted cards. In total you’ll get $2,500 of AMEX gift cards for $2,522.40 less $500=$2,022.40. Effectively you’re buying $2,500 of gift cards with a 19.1% discount. Note that these cards have no PIN, so your only option with these will be to sell them or use them for everyday spending, as a gift, or as a donation.

Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones For $309 Shipped Via eBay Daily Deals

-Ritz Camera doesn’t collect sales tax for orders shipped outside of New Jersey.

These are the gold standard of Noise-cancelling headphones. I use them every day and find them to be much more comfortable than its predecessors. Being able to move around with out any cords attached at work or on a plane is a true pleasure. They also fold into a more compact case than previous versions.

The noise cancellation drowns out the drone of an airplane engine so well that when you take them off in middle of a flight you’ll be in shock that you were ever able to fly without them. They make for a peaceful flight and I sleep like a baby on the plane with them over my ears.

Get 250 Stars Each Time You Load $10 To Your Starbucks Gold Card Via Chase Pay!

Get 250 Stars Each Time You Load $10 To Your Starbucks Gold Card Via Chase Pay!

I didn’t get this offer and I wasn’t sure if this was a targeted offer, so I loaded $10 onto my Starbucks Gold card at 2pm on Sunday.

The 250 bonus points posted at 10pm last night.

From the Starbucks app just click Chase Pay as the payment method and then select the Chase card of your choice.

Note that you can only use a Chase login that has no business cards. You will need to create a new Chase login for only your personal cards to use Chase Pay.

You need just 125 points to get any size food or drink for free at Starbucks.

I like to test the fences though so I downloaded the Chase Pay app and changed the default payment card.

Then I went back into the Starbucks app and loaded another $10 via Chase Pay.

In less than 2 hours another 250 points posted:

Convert Virgin America Miles Into Alaska Miles At A 1:1.3 Ratio; Check Your Account For 10K Bonus Miles!

You can now convert Virgin America miles to Alaska miles at a 1:1.3 ratio here. Points transfer instantly.

There are lots of great uses for Alaska miles.

Note that this is a one-way street. The only reason to transfer now is to redeem an award with Alaska. Otherwise you can let your points stay on the Virgin America side and wait until you need Alaska miles or until they forcibly transfer all points over to Alaska.

In other news, people that had a Virgin America account as of 12/5 also got a nice surprise in their Alaska account. Here is the gift I found in my account:

If you only have a Virgin America account and not an Alaska account you should get an email asking you to open an Alaska account to claim your choice of 10K miles or $100 off a flight.

Register For AMEX NYC Restaurant Savings; Save At Reserve Cut

Register For AMEX NYC Restaurant Savings

From 1/23-2/10 you can save $5 off $35 up to 4 times per AMEX card at participating restaurants in NYC. You can view participating restaurants here.

Each $35+ transaction would have to be paid for separately for credit. A $70 transaction would only get a $5 credit, but if it was charged as $35 twice you would get $10 back.

You can register all primary and secondary AMEX cards.

Reserve Cut, the most upscale kosher restaurant in NYC, is participating. They have a 3 course prix-fixe lunch menu for $29, their current menu can be found here. After $2.57 tax and a tip you’ll get to the $35 required for a $5 statement credit, dropping the cost for lunch down to about $30. DDF reviews say that portions are small. There is a steak option, but it’s only 5 ounces. For lunch that’s fine, just don’t expect to leave stuffed if you go with the prix-fixe.

Of course the $5 off $35 works for lunch, dinner, or gift cards, there’s no need to use the prix-fixe option.

DD strategy: For 2 people going out for lunch I’d recommend sharing 1 prix-fixe menu ($29), 1 steak sandwich with fries ($32), and 1 order of short-rib tacos ($26). The total for that is $87 which should put you just over $105 after tax and tip. You’ll save $15 by charging is as 3x$35 payments, dropping the total bill to less than $95 after tax and tip.

They also now have a 1/2 pound Wagyu Burger served with “bacon” and porcini mushrooms and grilled onions for $34 at lunch that has been getting good reviews though I haven’t tried that yet.

In general I think their dinners are overpriced. I got a $94 Wagyu steak on a DDF DO on the way back from United’s Island Hopper that was wholly unimpressive:

I’d take Mike’s Bistro’s $54 short ribs any day over that:

???????????????????????????????

 

 

However Reserve Cut’s lunches are a great value.

Their $32 Steak Sandwich comes loaded with heavenly caramelized onions and with delicious fries. I’ve had different cuts of steak on this sandwich and some have definitely been better than others, but overall I think it’s a great value and personally I’d go this route and save $5 on this sandwich over the prix-fixe menu with a 4 ounce steak…

Reserve Cut’s Mushroom Porcini Soup is excellent:

And their short rib tacos are truly sublime:

Their drinks are very good as well:

And the desserts I’ve had there have been great, though the prix-fixe dessert options have had mixed reviews.

So, who will be the first to ask their waiter to swipe their card 4 separate times to pay for their meal 😀

Yes, Sapphire Reserve Has Primary Car Rental CDW Coverage In Israel; DROPR Applies In Writing Just As It Does Over The Phone…

Related:
-Last Chance For Chase Sapphire Reserve 100,000 Point Signup Bonus; Get $2,100 In Travel!


In November I wrote about HUCA (Hang up, Call again) and DROPR (Don’t rely on phone reps, pronounced Drop-Er) after a rep told a DD reader bad information about the timing of the Sapphire Reserve travel credit.

Phone reps are typically the worst offenders. I’ve gotten more than enough comically bad information from phone reps of banks, airlines, hotels, and other companies to fill a book.

Sometimes companies will honor what their phone reps say. I had a Chase Continental Presidential Plus credit card with a grandfathered $100 annual fee. When they launched the Chase United Club card a rep agreed to switch the card over and honor the $100 annual fee. I wrote down the rep’s name and the time of the conversation. When the year was up I was billed $395 but when I referenced the rep’s name and the time of the conversation Chase was able to listen to the recording and honor the $100 annual fee along with a $60 annual 1K bill credit. That was my go-to card for general spending until Chase came out with the Freedom Unlimited card.

But many times companies won’t honor erroneous information, so it helps to double check information received on places like the DansDeals Forums where people with experience can verify what you were told.

Even written information can be bad.

When the Sapphire Reserve came out 2 Chase SM reps told me that additional users get their own Global Entry fee credit, which turned out to be bad information:

chase1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

chase2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That turned out to be false. Additional users don’t get Global Entry reimbursement.

Recently another case of bad information received in writing came up on the DansDeals Forums.

I received a letter from Chase stating that the Sapphire Reserve card gives primary rental car CDW insurance in every country in the world and shared that in my posts on the card.

When I rented from Hertz in Israel that asked for proof of coverage and they accepted that letter.

DDF member “saul” called Chase about renting in Israel and received this written response stating that the card didn’t provide coverage in Israel:

 

csr5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He shared on DDF,

“I am traveling at the end of the week, and following Dan’s rules, I asked for written confirmation that my new Chase Sapphire Reserve card covers the CDW in Israel. So the document that they sent me specifically excludes Israel. I called the benifits department and they said that the documents for chase sapphire reserve specifically exclude Israel.
I switched back to the chase sapphire preferred-it should arrive in 2 days.”

 

He did indeed follow the rule of getting it in writing. But even in writing DROPR and HUCA still apply.

I told him to call again and the rep told him that the previous rep was mistaken.
He got the correct letter on the 2nd call stating that the card does actually provide primary coverage worldwide, including Israel:

csr4

Should You Buy Starpoints To Earn Southwest Companion Pass Status?

-The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express offers 25K points for spending $3,000 in 3 months.

-The Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express offers 25K points for spending $5,000 in 3 months


You can transfer 90K Starpoints into 270K Marriott Rewards points.

With 270K Marriott points you can get 7 nights in a Marriott hotel, 120K Southwest points, and a Southwest Companion Pass. With that pass you’ll get to bring a companion with you for free on all Southwest paid tickets, Southwest award tickets, and Southwest tickets booked with AMEX or Chase points, though you need to call AMEX or Chase to actually book travel on Southwest. There is no limit to how many times you can use the companion pass. The pass will expire 12/31/18. Hotel points must be transferred by 3/31/17 in order to earn companion pass status. You can read more about this limited time offer here.

120K Southwest points will net between $1,800-$2,400 of free flights. Thanks to the companion pass you can bring someone along for free, which will mean you can use those points for $3,600-$4,800 of free flights. Plus of course you’ll get a 7 night category 1-5 hotel stay.

You can buy up to 30,000 Starpoints per year here. Starpoints were on sale, but that ended on 12/31 and points are currently 3.5 cents each. You may be able to buy points for less than that on the grey market.

30K Starpoints would set you back $1,050. If you have a Starwood AMEX you would earn 2.1K Starpoints for the purchase, so effectively you’ll have paid $1,050 for 32.1K Starpoints or 3.27 cents per Starpoint.

If you already have most of the Starpoints and will utilize the companion pass then buying some points is a no-brainer.

If you need more than 30K Starpoints you’ll have to buy them with additional Starwood accounts. You can freely transfer Starpoints between Starwood accounts that are located at the same address. Note that you need to wait 14 days from when you open a new Starwood account until you can buy Starpoints.

If you have no Starpoints you can open a Starwood consumer AMEX and Starwood business AMEX to rack up points. The signup bonus will post within a few days of completing the $3K or $5K spend threshold.

Otherwise you can purchase 30K Starpoints from 3 accounts to accumulate the required 90K Starpoints. It would set you back some $3,150, but if you’ll use the 7 free nights and take full advantage of the 120K Southwest points and the companion pass it can make sense. If you’re not sure if you’ll be able to use those 120K points with the companion pass then it likely doesn’t make sense unless you already have some Starpoints.

Of course there are other ways to get to 110K companion pass qualifying Southwest points besides buying Starpoints. Those include:
-You can open Chase Southwest or Marriott credit cards.
-You can transfer Marriott points between members for a specific award and then redeem 270K points for the 7 nights+120K points package.
-You can transfer Chase points to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio and then redeem 270K points for the 7 nights+120K points package.
-You can transfer AMEX points to Starwood at a 3:1 ratio and from Starwood to Marriott at a 1:3 ratio and then redeem 270K points for the 7 nights+120K points package.
-You can transfer Chase points to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio and Hyatt points to Southwest at a 50K:30K ratio.

Will you go for Companion Pass status before the hotel point transfer opportunity ends?
