Recommended Posts

2020 Thread

 

For 2021, I'm doing things a little different. Instead of being a thread that is centric on Choice Hotels, I'll be posting the earnings and redemptions for all the programs I participate in.

 

Here is a list of credit cards and shopping portals I use most. I'm not gonna list the earnings multipliers for each card or program. Most people here already know what they are. For those that don't know, now is a good time for you to do some leg work and learn. DISCLAIMER-- Everybody's goals and strategy is different. There is no one size fits all. 

 

Credit Cards

 

Amex Green

Choice Privileges Visa Signature

Amex Delta Gold

Amex Delta Blue

Amex Platinum (card is on probation to be canceled June 2021)

Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select MC

Citi AAdvantage MileUp MC

Citi Double Cash MC

Citi Rewards+

Amtrak MC

BofA Cash Rewards Visa

IHG Premier MC

US Bank Cash+

 

Portals

 

Rakuten (Amex MR Earning)

DOSH

Delta Skymiles Dining

American Airlines AAdvantage Dining

Delta Skymiles Shopping

American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping

 

Let the points, miles, and cash back hoarding and redeeming begin!

Note to self. Pay closer attention to rewards programs that have fallen off my radar. In this case. Wells Fargo Go Far Rewards. I almost missed this one. I have the Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Signature.

Woke up this morning to an email from Citi.

I received a similar offer on my Executive card.  Unfortunately I buy all of my gas online.
