🤔“You live in a @marriotthotels You Spend in a @marriotthotels ....why don’t you have the best marriot rewards credit card?? 🤦🏻‍♂️
.
My family isn’t into the whole travel hacking game like I am so it takes A LOT of convincing to get them to see the light.
.
My sister, @gtm310 lives in a @marriotthotels. She was a current Marriott cardholder but when @chase released the new Marriott Premier Plus I talked her ear off until she got it.
.
At the time, (thanks to me) she applied for the 100k sign-up bonus after you spend $3,000 in 3 months. The current offer is now 75,000 Marriott points.
.
6x on @marriotthotels spend
.
2x on all other purchases
.
Annual free night with 35,000pt redemption level.
.
Automatic Silver status
.
Path to gold after $35,000 spend
.
15 Elite Night Credits
.
$95 annual fee
.
Looks like she’s doing JUSSSTTTTT fine....all thanks to me. 😂 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨 Charge vs Credit Cards 🚨
.
@americanexpress has GREAT charge cards that can earn you A LOT of Membership Rewards points that can be transferred to partnered airlines or hotels!
.
Here are some of the main differences:
.
Credit Line:
.
Charge cards have no limit: Just because there is no credit line doesn’t mean you have a magic card and can buy $1,000,000 Ferrari with one transaction. Your purchasing power can adjust with the use of the card, your payment history, credit record and financial resources. This is a good thing because there is no effective utilization rate that can have a negative impact on your credit score if over 30% (give or take)
.
Credit card has pre-approved max limit: simply meaning if your credit line is $5,000 you CAN’T carry a balance over $5,000.
.
Monthly Payment:
.
Charge cards requires you to pay off the full months balance.
.
Credit cards have a monthly statement balance that is required every month. You can pay off the amount in full (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) OR pay the minimum amount.
.
Interest Rates:
.
Charge cards: None. Late payments do apply.
.
Credit cards: if you only pay the minimum amount, an interest rate will apply until the full amount is paid off. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨Free Night🚨
.
Pleasant surprise in the emails this morning!
.
With the @americanexpress Hilton Aspire this is an annual perk
.
With the @americanexpress Hilton Ascend (my card) you earn this free weekend night (Friday / Saturday / Sunday) at ANY Hilton Hotel by meeting a minimum spend of $15k in a calendar year.
.
Luckily for me I am able to put my rents on the card without a huge processing fee by using a 3rd party! 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨Gold Status🚨
.
That feeling when you get @hiltonhonors Gold Status simply for signing up for a credit card when some rookie earned gold status by paying for 40 hotel nights! 😂
.
Do yourself a favor and sign up for the @americanexpress Hilton Ascend credit card and automatically get gold status. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler #newbie

🚨Credit Card Application🚨
.
Do you ever lay and ponder when it’s appropriate to sign up for your next credit card? Cuz I sure do.
.
This is a loaded questions with a lot of factors you have to take into consideration. I’m going to hit a few of the MAIN topics.
.
Most credit card sign-up bonuses require you to meet a minimum spend in 2 or 3 months time. So never apply before the sign-up bonus details. .
Same bank: @chase has a 5/24 rule where you can’t apply for more than 5 cards in a 24 month window. There are some exceptions to this. @americanexpress looks at number of accounts open, line of credit, and length of time since last opened account.
.
Inquiry: every time you apply for a card the credit card company will do a hard pull aka hard inquiry in determining your pending decision. This will drop your score a few points but will typically rebound quickly. If you’ve recently applied for a card but were denied and want to apply for another one the following week you may want to think twice about that. Multiple hard inquiries can be red flags and IMMEDIATE rejections.
.
My recommendation: for single card holders 3 months of steadily building credit is safe. For multiple credit card holders you may want to hold off for 6 months. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

This year has been a BUSY year as far as #awardtravel goes. Some of the more significant things to happen recently are the loss of #koreanair as an #ultimaterewards transfer partner as well as the launch of the Rose #goldcard from #Amex. So it’s time once again to reevaluate the best way to earn #hawaii award travel just on #creditcard spend. And as you’ll see in my post today linked in my bio, things got interesting.

I was going back and forth on the Sultry palette but then I saw my sister @sjhauls swatches and her look using it and I knew I wanted it 😍

I also purchased the coconut probiotic moisturizer from @pacificabeauty which is a new one for me. I have extremely dry skin in the winter, and I heard this was a great dupe for the toofaced hangover primer.

From @catrice.us I grabbed up the prime and fine dewy fixing spray and the prime and fine smoothing refiner. I’ve got to say the primer is unlike any I’ve had and I am loving it! It does an amazing job blurring wrinkles,pores,and imperfections.
I also grabbed some @ardellbeauty lashes and a great little lash tool. Finally some @nyxcosmetics glitter, because who doesn’t need glitter in their life?

Just hit 400K @hiltonhonors points.
.
The valuation for each @hiltonhonors point is roughly $0.005
.
So 400,000 @hiltonhonors points = $2,000 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

This is how Sarah and I felt when we called to figure out why we couldn’t find a referral link for our @chase Reserve cards.
.
That’s Right!....@chase has concluded all the referral links for any @chase card.
.
Apparently it’s been effective since at least 10/1/18.

Sorry for the bad news people. If you aren’t having this problem please comment down below. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

Who knew we would love #caymanislands turtle center so much! Cayman Islands is a beautiful Island, but we were taken aback by their cost of living. Lunch for a family of four can cost upwards of $80 USD. We were fortunate to have flown with @southwestair and being a rewards memeber of both Southwest and @chase we were able to get flight and hotel for $125 total in taxes for a four day vacation. More on #travelpoints and #grandcayman in future posts. #themoorewetravel #travelingkids #flysouthwest

Wow 3 amazing meals over from LAX-ICN-SIN on Singapore Airlines. Lobster thermador, kung pao chicken and filet mignon. Who knew you could have fine dining and excellent champagne and wine on a plane? Fantastic flight crew and service all around. Only complaint is the hard bed on the 777-300ER. .used @americanexpress points transferred to Krisflyer program!

.
Marriot Premier Plus Credit Card via @chase
.
75,000 point Sign-up bonus
.
6x / $1 at over 6,500 @marriotthotels and @spg qualified resorts

.
Automatic Silver Elite Status (path to Gold after $35,000 / year)
.
$95 Annual Fee 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨Weddings Can Be Expensive🚨
.
How to get free stays
.
Roughly 10,000 points will get you a free stay at a category 1 Hotel for most hotel brands. @hyatt @hiltonhotels @marriotthotels
.
If you don’t want to spend points or money (minus your annual fee) some credit cards give you a free stay every annual year for simply being a card holder. These are more PREMIUM hotel branded cards. ($450 - $550 Annual Fee)
@americanexpress Hilton Aspire ($450 AF)
.
You will be able to find lower tier cards like the @americanexpress Hilton Ascend ($95 AF) that will give you a free weekend night after $15,000 spend in a calendar year. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

Home buying expenses are really ratcheting up my mileage account balances 🤑 Over 1/3 of a free domestic flight just by front-loading $1950 of guaranteed expenses on gift cards. Man, I love my hobby!! ✈️💰


7

🚨Free Drinks🚨
.
There’s a few ways to go about this...
.
Pretty much any premium rewards card will include some type of travel credit. Airline drinks typically are covered under that travel credit perk. These are the cards that usually have a hefty annual fee but are typically outweighed with the perks that come with the card.
.
@southwestair will give you a drink coupon after traveling 10 @southwestair flights. (Best to book 5 Round Trip flights with 1 way tickets) Unfortunately, redeeming flights through points/miles don’t count.
.
Travel during certain holidays
.
If you haven’t traveled on an airline for quite some time they will entice you to fly with a free drink coupon. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

Option one was 58k I just packed @raphaelvarane #ultimaterewards, #divisions and current bid is 96k, ne t pic will show

🚨Double & Triple Dipping🚨
.
First off, you feel like a boss walking out of a restaurant/ bar knowing you just took them for 2x or 3x the points you should have.
.
Reason number 8,928,817,235 why I love @hiltonhonors
.
Linking ANY credit card to the Hilton dining portal will allow you to earn Hilton points as well as the perks the linked card has.
.
If you link your Hilton card you will not only receive Hilton points from cc perks but you will also earn @hiltonhonors points through the portal
.
I have the @americanexpress Ascend so instead of 6pts / $1 I now earn $14pts / $1 at qualified restaurants. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler

🚨EARN WITHOUT SPENDING!?🚨
.
Nowadays everyone is willing to send a little incentive to have a review done of their product.
.
Surveys are a perfect example of this.
.
If you’re done with work and just sitting on the couch why not fill out a quick survey or two and earn some points.
.
As you can see here, I earned 230 Hilton Honors points in a matter of 30 minutes without spending $1.
.
To put this into perspective:
.
With the Hilton Ascend branded card that’s....
.
$19 spent at Hilton
.
$39 spent at restaurants
.
$79 on all other spend
.
I prefer earning points for free. That’s just me though. 👋🏼 👋🏼 @thecreditcardtraveler
