Look into the Hyatt AI properties, the Ziva are always getting good reviews, for sure have ones in Jamaica and a few spots in Mexico. Transfer UR to Hyatt should be 25K/ night for both of you is a great value. Park Hyatt St Kitts always gets good reviews as well. Not sure if those are what you're looking for but your UR can get you 3 nights for free today before the MS

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion
Apologies in advance if this has been asked a million times already but I signed up for the Chase Saffire Preferred card in August and added my wife as an authorized user. We got our 50k bonus.

Can she turn around and sign up for the Chase Saffire Reserve card, add me as an authorized user and we get the 50k bonus again?

Or do they protect against that?

Need help picking a new card to churn. I've already churned the chase sapphire reserve, chase ink business rewards, amex platinum cards. Any good options?

you like AA points? You can get the Citi AA Platinum/Business cards and the Barclaycard Aviator/Business cards. The Barclaycard business card appears a bit tougher to get though

Those would give you around 250,000 AA points

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion
My annual fee for csr just charged and I plan on downgrading for refund. I have 40 days to do so for full refund.

I have the $300 credit available, but have no travel plans. What can I do to use the travel credit before downgrading? Are there gift cards out there that count?

SW credit cards trigger it for the Amex credit, might work for Chase too since you buy from Southwest.com. Don't know for sure though.

Question bump


I’m in the market for my first credit card. I read the last 6 pages or so and it wasn’t clear what the best option is. Who has interest free financing, best perks, and no yearly fee? Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if you have credit established by some other means, but I've seen Discover suggested as a good first card option. If you have a thin credit file, it can be difficult to get approved for an unsecured card. How long are you looking for 0% APR?

I'm looking into getting a new credit card for traveling perks. I think I have it narrowed down to CSR or CSP. I'm trying to decide if that $450 annual fee will be worth it. I have several trips in mind that I would like to take over the next couple of years. Just trying to get the most bang for my buck. Looking at some of my trends my biggest expense seem to be restaurants.

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion
The annual fee is really $150 since $300 is automatically credited back for ANY travel (parking, uber, tours, etc.) without any hoops to jump through. $150 for lounge access, global entry ($129 value I think?) and an extra 1% on food and travel and better redemption rates on travel makes Reserve a no brainer to me especially if you're about to travel a lot.

If you are going to travel 100% get the CSR over the CSP.

It's an absolute no brainer like the previous post mentioned.

100k Marriott rewards worth much?

Just got email for the Bonvoy Boundless card.

People who know way more than me seem very down on all of the changes that came with the Marriott rebranding.

But that doesn't mean it can't still be a decent card, probably just not on the level it used to be.

Personally though, I haven't done a ton of research into it. But 100k sign up is a 100k sign up.

Not sure where you read this. But this change sucks for everyone.

Not honoring reservations, status, etc. Bonvoyed.com is a whole site dedicated to how bad they've been. I would hope it'll be something they'll straighten out with time but 100K is a lot and could probably get good value.

So you agree with what I said but are confused where I read it??

But to answer I think I read about it in DoC as well as several threads in r/churning.
