I hope that you’ve enjoyed the past week of travel information – here’s a recap of what you may have missed from Points With a Crew over the past week or so
Our first try at booking the ticket didn’t go so well, but finally we got it booked! I thought I’d check the cash price of the flights we’re taking
Final tally of the “cash” cost of the flights I’m taking – $27,732.70! (I think I’ll pay the 160,000 miles instead!)
The Chase 5/24 rule has been in place for several months now, but till now has only applied to the Chase Sapphire and Chase Freedom cards.
If you’re looking for a good co-branded card, there’s a Marriott credit card 80000 point offer – the highest signup bonus I’ve seen on this card.
Citibank came out with 2 pieces of bad news this week:
They no longer are allowing funding of checking accounts with a credit card, and they also shut down the accounts of several people (mostly big churners)
I had a bit of a Citibank account shutdown scare when I couldn’t find one of my accounts online, but thankfully it all turned out okay.
