Changed the 3% category on the BofA Custom Cash back to "travel". The domicile we moved to back in August finally got with the times doing online payments for rent. My hope is it will code as a qualifying travel category like it did at the old place.

 

@cv91915 Following up. I paid rent early. The curiosity was killing me. It coded as a qualifying travel category. :clapping:

Hi @TheVig, we can pay rent with a credit card online too but they take a fee. I did the math and the 3% would cover the fee. So with the BofA card you can make a rent payment and it codes as a travel category?

Yes it codes as a travel category. The pic of the merchant description I posted was taken directly from my account after the charge posted.

I was poking around my Shell Fuel rewards app on my phone and noticed you can now earn AA miles. 2 cents/gal.

 

In 2022 these miles will be Loyalty Points toward AAdvantage status.  Noted, and thanks.  Never would have found this.

 

We don't burn a lot of gas, but it all adds up.

Nice thing about it, is you don't have to link a specific credit card. Just enter your phone number at the pump, and use whatever card works for you. 

 

We don't burn a lot of gas either in our personal vehicles. However I do in my company car. So using the company fleet card for gas, won't be an issue.

I started playing around with a new to me app called CoinOut. Basically another receipt scanning app like Fetch, except you earn real cash back. Like Fetch, they try to get you to buy specific items, but you don't have to. Currently earning anywhere from $0.02 to $1 a receipt. No credit card linking, so I don't have to worry about it interfering my card linked stack setups.

While not life altering, the GetUpside app is proving to be worthwhile. Besides getting CB on gas, they have been adding many restaurants that also happen to participate with DOSH, Rakuten, and airline dining programs. Many restaurants paying out 7%+ on GetUpside.

 

A typical, successful restaurant stack scenario for me has been:

 

1. Rewards Credit Card

2. GetUpside

3. DOSH

4. Skymiles Dining, AA Dining, or Rakuten

5. Fetch

6. CoinOut

In the last couple of days, AA miles have started posting to my AA account. Icing on the cake, is that stacking with GetUpside has not been negatively impacted.
