Here are the Top 5 Credit Cards for Travel Rewards!

Every month when I update my Top 5 Credit Card Deals for Travel Rewards, I scour the web for the best offers.  I want my readers to come here and find the best offers without all the clutter — these are the offers my I’m signing up for myself or suggesting to friends and family.  

Earlier this year I booked my trip to the Maldives, Vietnam, Singapore (with Kuala Lumpur still to book) for 120k miles per person in Business Class.  Its coming up soon – without miles, there is no way I could have bought these flights (which cost about $10,000 per person).  Anyone can do the same.

If none of these cards are what you’re looking for, check out the credit card offer directory and tools here.

Top 5 Credit Cards for Travel Rewards - Billboard

 

THE TOP 5

 

1) Chase Ink Plus Business Credit Card

Links to Apply:  Apply online now (until recently this was only available in person at a bank branch)

  • Link 1
  • Link 2: My affiliate link:  Takes you to my business card post which contains an affiliate link.  It’s an extra step- thank you if you use the link there to sign up!

Bonus: After spending $5,000 in 3 months you receive 70,000 Ultimate Reward Points (which are worth at least $1k if you redeem them for United Miles).

Annual Fee: $95 (not waived)

Why you should get it:

  • Limited Time Offer!  This may be expiring 10/19/14!   If you want it…don’t wait.  They have never offer 70,000 points for this card.
  • The #1 reason: Ultimate Reward Points transfer to United 1:1 – so 70,000 Ultimate Reward Points = 70,000 United Miles.  After you spend the required $5k, you will have a total of 75,000 points which is worth 3 domestic round trip tickets (worth approx $1,000+)
  • Read my more detailed post here
  • This is the highest offer I’ve ever seen for Chase Ink cards!  The usually offer is 50k points which was increased up to 60k twice in the last two years.
  • 5 points per dollar spent at office supply stores, cell phone, landline, internet and cable services
  • Free Lounge Club Membership – including 2 visits to airport lounges free.  Click here to get your membership (for some reason, Chase does not provide this info to you unless you ask).  The invitation code is “CHASEINK”.

Lyft is delivering free Chobani Pumpkin-Spice Greek Yogurt in Manhattan today!

I noticed a strange new option when I loaded my Lyft app today – I could choose Chobani??

Lyft App - Request Free Chobani Greek Yogurt

According to Bloomberg, “Chobani is teaming with on-demand ride service Lyft Inc. to deliver 1,000 free cups of its pumpkin-spice flavor (limited batch) around the city today, followed by a giveaway at the store tomorrow.”

When I try to “request Chobani” on my Lyft app, it keeps telling me the drivers are busy (its raining too which doesn’t help).  One lucky reader was able to snag a case of the new pumpkin spice flavor (thanks for sending the pic!).   Sign in now and try to get some free yogurt if you are in Manhattan!
