Anyone on the credit card game? What's your current strategy and card? I'm thinking of applying for the AMEX Platinum when it gets to 75k-100k sign on bonus.

      I definitely want to learn more about this, thank you for the references! Does it matter to wait for 100k sign up offers or it's really rare?

      100k is unicorn. You never know. 70k is doable. More that matters I when you have spend not other way around.

      Don’t wait for 100, chase took a massive hit in their books when they came out with that 100 bonus for the new reserve when it was first released. I don’t see another one coming for a while.

    I can get you 70k bonus right away lol. I have a Centurion.
    Usually when you use the Black card the referral bonus is bumped up by 10k. I have seen 60k as well as 70k with same referral I generated.

      That's a lot of annual payments, how you keep track of what is what? This is definitely something I want to learn.

    Check out the points guy website and the chase bundling strategy. Right now I have the sapphire reserve and freedom unlimited. Freedom gives me 3x points for any purchase and then the reserve gives me 50% additional if I use those points on travel.

      How do you get 3x with freedom unlimited? It should only be 1.5 x 1.25 =1.875x

      Signup promo for the CFU - 3x instead of 1.5x for the first year.

      Exactly what he said. Even then, the $450 annual bonus for the reserve is really only $150 because they give you $300 annually to use for any travel. Airlines, train, uber, etc. freedom has no annual fee
