This post is the first of many in which I will summarize last week’s posts. Links are provided to each one for curiosity.
This week’s posts included four card reviews and one explanation post. I will be continuing to create posts like the latter to keep the blog interesting.
Monday’s post spotlighted Chase’s top business card, The Ink Business Preferred. This mid-tier business card has an 80,000 Ultimate Rewards (UR) points bonus and many 3x categories. For $95 per year, card-members are getting a stellar deal for travel.
Tuesday’s post was in the same family as Monday’s. The Ink Business Unlimited is a no annual fee business card from Chase. It earns 1.5x UR points on all purchases just like the Chase Freedom Unlimited. It also comes with a bonus of 50,000 UR points after spending $3,000.
You can transfer points earned to partners if you get this card and the Ink Business Preferred. The same holds true with either of the Chase Sapphire cards.
On Wednesday, I switched to Amex and reviewed their Blue Business Plus card. Amex’s entry-level business card earns 2x Membership Rewards (MR) points on the first $50,000 in purchases each year.
MR lovers would be hard-pressed to find a better deal than this card for pure earning. It doesn’t have any significant perks, but it is a cost-free way to maintain your MR points balance.
I switched to Citi on Thursday and reviewed their mid-tier card, the Premier. This is the only personal card that I reviewed this week and its great if you want to earn Thank You (TY) points.
The Citi Premier has a 50,000 TY point sign-up bonus that can be earned after spending $4,000. It also earns 3x points on General Travel and Gas. International travelers can earn quickly with this $95 annual fee card.
This post introduced a new format to PYCR in which I explain different credit card related topics. I explain my version of the Five Credit Card Tiers and give readers another way to think about card diversification. This post explains why having at least one card from each tier (except Tier V) is beneficial for travelers.
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday! Stay posted for more content next week!
