Citi Prestige vs. Chase Sapphire Ink??
Which should I put my spend on? I’ve gotten the sign up bonuses on both but am unsure which award program is more useful for airline transfers at a good value and with reasonable premium seat availability. I can’t find any articles on here comparing the two. For background, my partner and I have millions of miles on AA and he is Lifetime Platinum. I’m more interested in putting points toward programs on non-One World carriers. (We already have plenty of hotel points.)
[USER=178]@travel4b[/USER] You probably have a case to make for both cards. If you’ve been collecting points for a while then you know that different programs have value in different areas. The CSP will give you direct access to UA and SQ in *A while TY points can go to SQ and Eva. I think UR probably is the winner there but I’m not very familiar with the Eva program. On the other hand the TY points from the prestige might be a nice complement to your AA status. You can use them towards 1.66 cents off your AA fare for times when points don’t make sense while still leveraging your lifetime Plat status and save your miles for more expensive long haul redemptions…
