Tip When Churning Cards

Make your life easier. Always talk to a representative when activating any new credit card. Confirm (1) The amount of bonus miles you’ll be receiving, (2) How much money you need to spend, and (3) The date you need to spend it by. Trust me on this. You’ll be in much better shape with any disagreements if you  handle them at activation.

Southwest Airlines Card – 2 Free Round-Trips

Great Southwest credit card offer to report!

I’d still get the Sapphire card first (click here for the credit card page) but they’re both great choices. If you haven’t applied for a Chase card in the last 30 days, you should grab one of these. Here’s the details:

  • 50,000 points (enough for 2 Wanna Get Away round-trips)
  • 6,000 points on every anniversary date (equal to $100 towards Wanna Get Away fares)
  • Annual fee of $99 is not waived
  • Click here to apply
