Yeah it’s hard to go back to no loop- not too hard to stitch one on though.
They hold 200 pounds.
There are no international fees.
811 on Credit Sesame. My main ding is only having one type of account (credit cards).
Some cards offer redemption for specific goods, and many, including Chase cards, let you redeem points at specific retailers, but those redemptions are likely to be the worst of all possible returns.
You can get 2% back on everything with something like the Citi Double Cash. It’s not going to compare to the potential of UR points for example, but it’s easy.
I’ve used the remote from across the room, wouldn’t worry about it.
For some recommendations, of course All-Clad is our reader favorite, along with Lodge on the cast iron front. Pick up another bestseller, the Hudson Chainmail Scrubber, for easy cleaning of the cast iron, and you can totally hit it with soap, just don’t soak it. Some great tips here for cleaning the stainless steel.
You should get all of them, basically. The Preferred which you’ll later downgrade to a Freedom, the Reserve as your main card for dining/travel and redemption, the Unlimited as a fallback. There’s a $150 signup bonus on the Freedom at the moment. You can transfer any points from the other cards to the Reserve.
We don’t assume anything.
Get the Reserve. Move all your current UR points to the Reserve. When your next annual fee on the Preferred is coming up, call Chase and switch your Preferred to a Freedom or Unlimited. You can have more than one Freedom.
Yep, but they’ll be on sale.
Yeah but you’ll lose a bunch of value.
Don’t cancel cards unless you have to. If they’re no fee just throw them in a drawer. If there’s a fee call once a year and tell them you’re going to cancel unless they waive it. Or you can sometimes “downgrade” fee cards to their no fee counterparts.
Yep, but “upgrades” do not come with the sign-up bonus.
Do you do a lot of restaurant dining? Remember the sign-up bonus is huge, you could always cancel if you find it’s not working out for you in the future.
