re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Sho Nuff
[quote]As far as spg goes, I can't spend 15-30K points on 1 night when it could potentially mean a one way flight to somewhere. But I am sure it is fantastic either way.[/quote] St Regis Rome is 750 Euro a night for when we're going. I think 20k SPG is worth that all day. ETA: [quote]Using fre...

[quote]Essentially a $1,600 sign up bonus for $1k/3m spending. That's ridiculous. [/quote] Definitely. [quote]You can even stay at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek which is $1000/night for a $2k bonus.[/quote] Yeah, will look into this card for a specific trip so me and the wife can do 4 nights. ...

[quote]Rome Cavalieri[/quote] Available on 6/22 and 6/23 for 80k per night if anyone is interested. I don't have Hilton and the offer of 40k is shite. Too bad I didn't get in on it a few months ago when it was 80k, we could've had 2 nights at the Waldorf in Rome. Didn't know I was going to Italy unt...

[quote]What is your app history in the past few months? Have you had the CSP/Ink before?[/quote] Never had INk/CSP before. I have gotten in the last 6 months: Prestige SW AS I got the IHG in May, UA in July 2014. So not sure where that puts me but I'm thinking if I am going to get a Chase car...

[quote]I guess I'm snagging the Ink and United cards while I can. [/quote] What Chase do you have currently? I have UA, SW, and IHG. I was just thinking of getting the Hyatt for my Euro trip but they aren't where we're going in Italy and it's an airport hotel in Amsterdam. Should I look i...

[quote]You could also look into Chase Hyatt card in 3 months from when you apply for these cards. $1K spend = 2 nights at any hyatt, anytime.[/quote] [quote]Hyatt's are limited in # of properties though, so you want to make sure where you're going first.[/quote] With this new Chase issue coming I ...

I have used AwardMapper and check IHG site nearly everyday. Please share if you have something or if you prefer offline I'd be happy to give you my email. I have been trying to get my wife and I there for almost a year now. We have enough points to do 5 nights or more if we do points and cash. She [...

[quote]Alternatively, if you are set on Bora Bora, you and your SO could both get the IHG card that gives you 80K points each for a total of 160K points. You can use 50K points per night to book directly into an OWB at the InterContinental Thalasso. [/quote] Give up on this false hope. And it's abo...

[quote]You're applying for AS cards every 90 days? Personal and biz?[/quote] I have not done it yet, but Afro has done it I believe and has had 4 cards at one (2 biz and 2 personal). I am thinking about doing it soon since it's no minimum spend unless you do the $100 statement credit then you have ...

[quote]If you were in this situation and had been having sex with her around the time she disappeared, you would be stupid to not get a lawyer. [/quote] Agreed. He was likely banging her and he figures $15k is cheaper than 50% of everything if his current finds out he was sleeping with his ex and h...

[quote] I am sure you will get a better experience by going with a knowledgeable local guide, but for some things (Sistine Chapel, Forum, Colosseum, Pantheon) it is pretty easy to bring a set of head phones and click play while he talks you through where to walk and what to look at.

[quote] If you want to do the Vatican you have to get a tour. Without a tour you're stuck in long lines.

[quote]There are two things about touring the Vatican though. The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. St. Peter's Basilica is a must. It's just ridiculous. [/quote] Checking this out on Viator as well, did you use them or go on your own? If you did the tour, did it include the tombs that Fo...
