Question for you (and this may be applicable to a number of your readers) – now that the announcement has been made about Visa/Citi being Costco’s replacement card providers, what are your thoughts on which card a heavy spender should move to? Our family spends upwards of $1m/year on Costco for our small businesses, currently all on Amex Centurion, which has been a beneficial relationship given the free DL Platinum status and ease of use of MR to DL miles (historically, at least). Ideally we move to something that’s still rewarding for travel redemptions
My question is: given that level of spend and the desire to have flexibility on travel awards, what ideal cards should we consider? My guess is you’ll recommend one of the Chase cards given the flexibility of UR, but United sucks and excluding that pretty much leaves us with nothing (don’t care for WN). Thoughts?
@ FM — Well what remains to be seen is if they’ll take all Visa cards, or just Citi Visa card. If they take all Visa cards I’d consider the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Alaska Airlines Visa, or American AAdvantage Visa for premium international redemptions.
