re: Best use out of Chase Sapphire Card - homeskillet
I have the Chase Sapphire and have used points for a car rental. I have points saved for a future vacation. Sometimes I get a better rental car rate through the site than I can even with my corporate discount code. For a lot of airline flights, you are better off transferring the points for m...

re: Rewards credit cards...which one to go with - homeskillet
if you do online purchases from Home Depot or Lowes, or if you have the time to start doing some, you can always get 5%, sometimes 10% cashback on your Discover. When I have a big project I am planning, or when I buy a new tool that is 100 or more, I order online and do in-store pick up. You have ...

We have 529 plans for each kid (2). They will probably fund a year of college at Alabama or another state school. Our deal to them is if they earn a scholarship, they go where they earned it. If not, it is two years at a community college, living at home, then two more locally at a four year college...

re: Is Amex worth it? - homeskillet
Based on that, I would say no. Compare it against the discover card. For a 175 dollar fee, if you average 2% cash back, which you probably won't, your first 8750 in purchases are to pay the fee back. Discover has no annual fee and you earn 1% on everything and 5% on rotating categories such as gas, ...

This works best if you are a business traveler, but don't they all??? at 270k Marriott points (category 1-5), you get 7 nights at a Marriott resort of your choice worldwide, plus 120k airline miles of your choice. 120k airline miles gets you and a partner to pretty much anywhere on United or a S...
