    I hope you can help me–I am unsure of what cards I should get and how I should use award points/miles. I live in Seattle and the places I want to visit are Japan, Greece, Orlando(Disney) Costa Rica, and Hawaii. Currently, I have the SW visa sig. card with 53K+ miles, The Amex Delta platinum with 20K+ miles, the SPG and will finish minimum spend for 30K points this month. I’m thinking I want to get the Chase Hyatt, BA, and Saphire cards. I’m new at MS and using Plastiq currently to meet minimum spends. What would you recommend? Sorry for a long complex question. Thanks, Kevin in Seattle.

    how much do you spend monthly? I would get one transferable points card like the CSP put as much as I could on it. I would alternate between the SPG for non bonus and the CSP for anything else.

    [USER=996]@KevinC5769[/USER] – check out Travel Codex, another Boarding Area blog, for tips on manufactured spending. Its forum area has lots of topics on how to generate points & miles with very little cash outlay. At a minimum you can use Bluebird/Serve for $5000 a month in spend.
