// Travel Credit Card Trifecta
I’ve covered may top travel cards in specific details in prior posts but the reason I’m talking to you today is because I had a friend ask me what’s the best credit card mix to plan his honeymoon.
He wants to travel in first class but doesn’t know when or where which means he needs to be flexible so today I want to talk about the best credit card mix to prepare you for any travel plans.
The 3 following cards are what I use on a daily basis to maximize points for travel.
I’ve used these points to fly on Singapore airlines suites Class, Emirates first class and Lufthansa first class on trips to Tokyo, Thailand and Europe.
Making your total points redemption 20X on any hotel booking.
If you haven’t used hotels.com before, don’t worry they’re great. In the past year I’ve stayed at the Plymouth Miami Beach, bill & coo Mykonos, Belle mont farm st kitts and tons of other amazing properties
And thanks to this card I’ve earned 20X
// Capital One Venture Card added new transfer partners in 2019
Prior to January of 2019 Capital one points weren’t worth much but since then they’ve added 14 partners
With these points you can fly to Europe, Asia or South America in business or first class
With your hotels.com rewards, it’s easy to redeem, when you’re checking out just apply your free night
// this card earns 5x on travel and dining
As of Jan 2019 the prestige is the top card out there thanks to its 5x points on travel and dining
They’ve also added a $250 travel credit that should be good for Uber or any travel category
The annual fee is going up to $495 from $450 but it’s easily worth it
// how does this card compare to others?
So the Amex platinum personal card also offers 5x on airfare but earns just 1x on dining
And the chase sapphire reserve is way down at 3x for both categories making it almost pointless
I will say chase has some good transfer partners like united and Korean air which the prestige does not
Marriott Bonvoy Business™ American Express® Card
So this is your card that’s going to round out your trifecta
The bonus categories aren’t any good, but what it lacks in bonus categories it makes up for in transfer partners
You can transfer to over 40 airlines which is super helpful when you’re trying to plan a honeymoon or any trip and you come across an airline where your points won’t transfer
// my favorite transfer partners are Korean, United, Japan JAL and Alaska airlines
These airlines aren’t found in most rewards transfer programs and JAL and Alaska you actually can’t transfer to from anyone but the Marriott/bonvoy program.
So this card earns
• 6x on Marriott spend
• 4x at U.S. restaurants, at U.S. gas stations, on wireless telephone services purchased directly from U.S. service providers and on U.S. purchases for shipping
• 2x on all other purchases
6x is higher than 5x from the prestige but what sucks about this new bonvoy program is points are worth 1/3 their old value
Instead of being able to transfer 20k points and getting 20k miles now you get just 7k miles for every 20k points. Most partners transfer at a 3:1 ratio
// there is a $125 annual fee which is $0 the first year
One of the best parts about transferring your Marriott Bonvoy points to airline partners is that you get a 5,000-mile bonus for every 60,000 points you transfer. As an example, if you were to move 60,000 Marriott Bonvoy points to American Airlines AAdvantage, you’d receive 25,000 AAdvantage miles. This gives you an effective transfer ratio of 2.4:1.
