It’s that time again! Here’s my 2019 #creditcard spend strategy. And while this year is similar to last year, there are a few differences thanks to a couple new cards. Check out the link in my bio for complete details!

🚨Credit Card Made Me Money!!🚨
.
That’s right! You heard me.....Most cash back credit cards will generally offer anywhere from 1% to 5% cash back – and will have guidelines regarding how much cash you can earn during a given timeframe.
.
The best cash back cards:
.
@discover IT & @chase Freedom are 5% on quarterly rotating categories
.
@capitalone Savor Card 4% on dining and entertainment, 2% on groceries, 1% on everything else
.
@chase Freedom Unlimited 1.5% on everything
.
@citi Double Cash: 1% on purchases & 1% as you pay
.
You have a few options on how to use this cash back. You can usually redeem cash back rewards for a statement credit, a check or a bank deposit.
.
So if you think about it, you can link your savings bank account to your cash back card and let that grow with interest over the years.
.
It’s not a lot but who would have that you’re credit card could make you money. 🤷🏻‍♂️ 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨Priority Pass🚨
.
How did I get 3 @prioritypass cards without paying $1?
.
Hefty annual fee credit cards almost always come with major perks. I happen to have 3 of those types of cards.
.
@chase Sapphire Reserve ($450 AF) ....this WAS the best one until football teams started abusing the policy. When the Reserve first came out you were granted unlimited entry fees. A value of $27 per person. As you could guess this was downgraded to yourself and 2 guest. Still a nice $81 perk.
.
The @americanexpress Hilton Aspire ($450 AF) entitles you to complimentary entry for you and 2 guest to all lounges.
.
The @americanexpress Hilton Ascend ($95 AF) gifts you 10 total entrees then $27 / person (including yourself)
.
There are more than 1200 @prioritypass airport lounges in the world for you to enjoy some complimentary food and drinks.
.
Bring your physical card as MOST airports accept the digital card but not all. You wouldn’t wanna miss out on the free goodies. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

Apparently #BrunoMars has a rum...? Generous samples at Park MGM lobby tonight! 😋

But the real story is how we used #chase #ultimaterewards points to get a (#free) room at #parkmgm so it’s easier to walk over to T-Mobile Arena for a #24karatmagicNYE 😁

🚨2018 Year In Review🚨
.
Over the last 12 months I’ve learned so much about credit and how credit cards can give you freedom to travel the world.
.
The @chase Trifecta was my first goal. 3 cards that allow maximum point earning. The Reserve (3x on Dining & Travel), the Freedom (5x on quarterly category spend), the Freedom Unlimited (1.5x on every transaction). Knowing what card to use gave me 2 round trip tickets to Hawaii at the end of January (100,000 Ultimate Rewards Points)
.
@amazon was my next card that earned me 5% back on @amazon spend. Even though this isn’t as valuable due to its 1 dimensional reward perk I chose it bc of the @chase 5/24 rule. After opening 5 cc you can no longer apply for any @chase cards until 2 yrs (24 months) has passed.
.
I was at dinner with my cousin one night and he pulled out the @pncbank Cash Back Rewards card so after hearing the perks I decided to go for it. The perks were great but it also gave me some diversity bc at the time all my cc’s were @chase. 4% at Gas Stations, 3% on dining, 2% on grocery spend, 1% on all other purchases.
.
Then I went on a @hiltonhonors frenzy. The @americanexpress Hilton Honors, Ascend, and Aspire all approved for a total of 325,000 sign-up bonus @hiltonhonors points. I’ve talked so much about Hilton recently so if you wanna read more about those benefits check out @thecreditcardtraveler 👋🏼 👋🏼

🚨New Card Alert🚨
.
The @americanexpress Hilton Aspire
.
As you may have known from a previous post, I am going to Hawaii in Jan/Feb and staying at the Grand Wailea, Waldorf Astoria. I had the @americanexpress Hilton Ascend card which got me 12pts/$1 at @waldorfastoria but with my new @americanexpress Hilton Aspire I will be getting 14pts/$1 at @hiltonhotels PLUS......
.
$250 Airline Credit
.
$250 Hilton Resort Credit
.
Diamond Status
.
Weekend night reward
.
With just those benefits alone, I will be able to recoup the $450 annual fee soooooo easily...
.
$750 with annual weekend night reward .
$250 on resort spend
.
$250 airline credit when I island hop from Maui to Oahu to go see Pearl Harbor
.
Merry Christmas Everyone! 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨What’s In My Wallet December 2018 🚨
.
Every transaction you make should have a reason why you chose to pay with that particular card.
.
@chase Sapphire Reserve
.
This is my everyday card. I get 3Xpts / $1 on dining and travel with an annual $300 travel credit
.
@americanexpress Hilton Ascend
.
This typically wouldn’t be a card in my wallet but I recently was approved for it and have been using it to meet the 100,0000pt @hiltonhonors Sign-up bonus
.
@chase Freedom Unlimited
.
For all the spending outside of Hilton, Dining and travel the @chase Freedom Unlimited is my go to because it earns 1.5Xpts / $1. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

This is part of the city sign in the San Pedro Sula Parque Central - forgive my creative cropping! A walk around the park was how I started my whirlwind tour of Honduras’ second largest city. Whenever I’m trying to get my bearings in a challenging city, I lean on @ihg Intercontinental hotels. They’re large, secure, and I’ve never been led astray by the concierges and staff. The $30/night budget hotels are better saved for ‘easy’ cities. Thanks for hosting, @realintercontinental_sps - I had a great time!

One of our favorite things we did on our trip to Kauai back in March was kayaking Wailua River and then hiking to a waterfall. I love being able to splurge a little on fun activities after we get our hotel and flights paid for with points. On this trip we used some Chase Ultimate Rewards to get a couple of nights at the Grand Hyatt Kauai. One of the reason I love Ultimate Rewards is because I can transfer them to amazing resorts like that one. Check out my new blog post to see all the reasons why I love Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Our Sapphire is connected to Debitize and is used for everyday spending. Debitize takes each transaction amount out of our checking account the next morning and pays off this credit card every two weeks. Click the link in my bio for more info on this free service.

Our Ink Business Preferred is generally used for our big purchases that require money to be transferred from our local savings account to our checking account to cover it.

For more info, check out the Credit Cards tab on my website under Menu.

As always, my credit card posts are aimed at those who have the discipline to use them without carrying a balance and paying interest. Know yourself and know your limits.🧡

Quick weekend in Austin to surprise my bestie @samanthagrebow for her bachelorette. That look of shock and surprise will stay with me for a long long time. Also, nothing beats downing queso and BBQ with friends.
