We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.

    I received one of these after getting rid of my Amex Platinum Business in April 2020 after the world was shut down and Amex wouldn’t give me a break from their Annual Fee for their card that was suddenly of zero use. That left a bad taste in my mouth for Amex generally, but I think this is still a poor value and I won’t be taking it because the benefits are just too slight compared to the Annual Fee. I used to love using MR points on ANA to go to Asia, but that airline is a shell of its former self and has little to redeem, and CX/Asia Miles is even worse – I can’t spend the hundreds of thousands of MR Points I already have. And against the MR points of diminished value is the $600 annual fee which I’ll incur for several years before ever being able to cash in those points – not to mention the offensive, outrageous, and petty charge to actually use my MR points. I consider Chase miles of some use because I can at least redeem on SQ, which is actually flying, and has an airport which is working, but 140K Amex miles are of dubious value (to me).
