re: My friend's girlfriend went on a "girls' trip" to Greece. Should I warn him? - Uhtred
There are many different types of hostels and the experience you have at a hostel is typically driven by the type of hostel you're in. For instance, there are some hostels that are just a bed. No common area, no bar. Just a bed. Some hostels have nice common areas with a bar, perhaps a live b...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
Oh, a lot of this depends on which Ink Business card you have. Cash, Unlimited or Preferred? If it's preferred, then you can downgrade your Chase Sapphire Preferred to Chase Freedom Unlimited, and as long as it's tied to your account with the Ink Business Preferred, you can convert your 'cashback' i...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
I think you may need to make a decision here. Do you want to accrue rewards points from credit card spend? or do you want to avoid annual fees? The perks of accruing rewards points tend to outweigh the annual fee, in my opinion. But everyone has to make that determination for themselves. Becau...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
I'd say keep the Discover card for 'age' of credit for your overall score. Which sapphire do you have? Preferred or Reserve? the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited are no-annual-fee cashback cards unless paired with one of the two Sapphire cards. When paired, you can transfer into UR points. Preferr...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
Teddy may have a different opinion, but I never transfer Chase UR points (or any flexible points currency) to a hotel loyalty program - unless I just want to transfer a few to hit a specific number... like a top-off, if I'm just a few hundred or a few thousand points from an award night that I'm loo...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
not quite. hotels are pretty static. with Marriott, for instance, a 35,000-point property is a 35,000-point property. The different categories of properties determine the points. Which is similar to how airlines price static awards among domestic, to Europe, to N. Asia, to S. Asia, etc. With sta...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Uhtred
static pricing charts are something like this: Domestic flights (one-way): Economy - 12,500 Business/First - 25,000 Flights from N.A. to Europe Economy - 30,000 Business - 70,000 First - 115,000 With dynamic pricing, the number of points will change based on the actual price of the fli...
