You can send up to $1k with a verified bank account monthly at no charge with a credit card. Very simple. You would need to set up one for you and her.

You send her $1k monthly. It goes in to her bank account, she withdraws, gives you check or cash.

Wow... How do they not charge a fee if they are paying the CC processing fees?

Or is this one of the luring you in ploys?

They are using the first $1k as a loss leader in hopes that you will send more than that. I imagine Amazon has negotiated very low CC processing fees, but still taking a loss on first $1k.

And with cause . I love what Amazon is doing, but damn, it's a tough stock for me to put my money.

Until then...I'll gladly use their Amazon payments as easy points . It's an easy way for my wife and I to rack up 24k SPG points annually and doing nothing except typing in email address and hitting submit.

Sorry for noob question, but how does one use AA miles on BA? As in how can I link the miles on AA Citi Card to BA flights?


If you are getting credit for the miles you can call the airline and tell them what miles you'd like when you travel. You can book on and fly on American and tell them to credit you in Avios.

The link given details how to cash in one airlines miles for a flight on the other. You can actually use them for any OneWorld partner. For instance, using AA miles you don't want to fly overseas on British Airways as they charge an expensive fuel surcharge. Air Berlin has no fuel surcharge and your American Airlines miles can be redeemed there.

This card is a no brainer for me.
I get more points off this card than any other card from regular and MS spend.
If you were looking to get a card soon, at 60k points I'd jump on it. 60K UR points are valued at close to $800 and you can definitely get more out of them than that.

How limited is limited time with Chase, typically? I wasn't planning on getting a Chase business card until the end of the year to maximize my waived yearly fees, but 60,000 points is hard to turn down.

It truly varies from card to card. I'd guess a month or so, but that is just a guess.

It seems like I remember them running it last year for about a month.

The annual fee is applied at card activation date not calendar year.

Yes, it is.

If you are married, it's wise to rotate the Ink products with the CSP between you and your wife, so at all times you can transfer UR points to/from each other and your Freedom/Ink cash cards without doubling up on unnecessary annual fees.
