Turo Spend $150 get $30 back

If you’re unfamiliar with Turo, it’s basically Airbnb for cars. You, me, anyone with some keys that meets Turo’s car standards can rent their vehicle out to you. I’ve used the company personally on multiple occasions to rent Range Rovers, BMWs, Jaguars, and a Tesla. Often, you’ll find deals that are MUCH better than you would otherwise pay at a traditional car rental agency.

*One thing to pay attention to though is the insurance. If you have a card that includes rental car insurance, it WILL NOT cover Turo. So factor the added insurance into your total price.

I’ve found Turo to not only offer cooler cars, but often at much cheaper prices.

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.

    American Express Gold: https://americanexpress.com/en-us/referral/KENNYB08Yx?XLINK=MYCP

    The Gold card is currently offering a 60,000 sign up bonus after $6,000 spent in 6 months.

    I find the gold card to be most useful for food purchases, earning 4x points at restaurants and grocery stores. You can recover almost all of the annual fee for the gold card $240 of the $250 if you take advantage of the monthly credits from food delivery and Uber. I like to accumulate additional Amex points by using shopping portals like Rakuten.

    Check with your regular car insurance before buying Turo’s. Mine covers Turo car rentals.
