Stuff I Love: This Credit Card Has Incredible Miles Bonus
First, a little inside information for you.
Just about every website that talks about credit cards is getting an affiliate fee when you sign up.
They get between $50-200 in their pocket for each person who signs up.
It’s a great business model for them, but you, the consumer, don’t know if they are really recommending the best card or fudging a bit because they want to get the fee.
No need for that doubt here.
The Miles Husband and I do not get affiliate commission fees for credit cards, so if you see a plug, it is simply our way of passing along cards we are looking at signing up for ourselves.
A few things to keep in mind.
You’ll need a decent credit score of around 700 or above.
As great as the miles chasing game is, it’s not worth carrying any kind of balance. We recommend only going forward if you have the resources and discipline to pay off your balances every month.
This week, The Miles Husband is recommending Chase Sapphire Preferred.
You’ll get 50,000 in bonus miles after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
These are points that can be transferred to a number of airlines and hotels.
You get double miles for every dollar you spend on travel or restaurants.
There is no annual fee for the first year.
Miles Husband does say to think ahead–do you have $4,000 to spend over the next three months after you get the card?
One more tip–
You might think signing up both you and your spouse up and earn double the bonus.
