My Chase Sapphire Reserve Application Result

I can’t remember the last time there was this much fuss about a credit card… though I admit, the new Chase Sapphire Reserve is amazing. Did you apply? While the Chase Sapphire Reserve has a $450 USD annual fee (that is not waived the first year), the card does come with some amazing benefits such as 100k Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4k USD in three months. The… Read More

My Current Credit Cards

Every few months I make a post summarising which current credit cards I have and what I’m planning on doing with them in the near future. I also shared what my credit card strategy is, and I was also debating about keeping both Starwood and Club Carlson credit cards (the personal and business version of each). Despite the changes in loyalty programmes in 2015, I… Read More

Barclaycard: Express Card Delivery doesn’t work!

Barclaycard US is a strange bank, they have some of the strictest rules when it comes to applying for credit cards and they also have some credit cards which aren’t as popular with consumers (as in foreign airline cards, sports cards, etc.).

Best Chase Sapphire Preferred Commercial

When it comes to credit card commercials, banks make some awesome ones. When it comes to advertisement, it is key to make great websites, banners, ads, etc. to promote your product and to ultimately get people to sign-up/buy it as much as possible. I don’t watch TV at all (does anyone these days?), and perhaps I’m missing out on some great commercials.. but worry not,… Read More

My Credit Card Strategy

I earn about 50% of my miles from credit cards (sign-up bonuses, everyday spending, etc.), 40% from actual flying, and finally 10% from the occasional mileage purchases and other related promotions. Since credit cards account for half of all of my miles, I figured I would share my credit card strategy. Keep in mind that I am in no way a financial adviser – this… Read More
