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
As always, if you’ve enjoyed some of these posts, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or sign up for our our once-daily email
If you’ve been following along, you know that we are planning a round the world trip (it’s on my travel bucket list!)
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.
We recently learned that it will soon apply to business cards like the Chase Ink, and now it’s coming to Chase co-branded cards as well!
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.
