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.

    Hi Zach any tips for a flight to Albania in early May of next year for my wifes Birthday. Been watching for deals but seems like international prices went up even higher. Hoping something pops up for travel Tuesday but not holding my breath. 250k Amex points. Tampa to Albania.

    Also was hoping to stop in Rome before coming back. How does that work with international flights?
    Thank You for your time!

    How does this work? I went to rebook and it didn’t give me an option to put in the promo code.

  • Jack June 15, 2021

    Unclear what the “rebook to save cash means”… I could rebook flights made for late October for flights in December at same discounted rates?

    • Miles June 15, 2021

      Hey Jack – If you had flights currently booked in the promo window you could rebook those flights to save money if this 50% off rate was cheaper, but they would need to fall within the promo window and you’d need to book by 6/17
