Despite your best efforts, multiple articles, and excellent advice, I am still a bit undecided on which credit card to go for to best meet my travel goals. In the end, I could probably just go with one and not try to be perfect and not worry about it, but thought I would ask for your help anyway.
To give you a perspective, I am already heavy in Delta and Marriott points, so definitely would like to diversify away from those and currently use Amex for just about all spending, so a Visa/MC would be helpful. (I think that rules out Starwood and similar)
Travel goals would be 1st Class on long routes (business class if I have to) – to Europe, Eastern Europe/Russia, Australia, and after that, maybe Far East.
Also seems like better to go with a flexible card that would be good for hotel stays as well as airline.
Your Beginners Guide says to go with Chase Sapphire, but you don’t mention the Citi Thank You there which also seems like a good option.
I don’t have the spending levels really needed to diversify more than a couple cards so I don’t see myself churning cards.
Any thoughts and advice?
Keep up the great work!
@ Rob — Great question! I’ll answer it on the main page of the blog tomorrow, if that’s okay.
