Chase Cards To Get Before The 5/24 Rule Implementation

As we posted last week, Chase may start applying the 5/24 rule to ALL of their cards starting in April.  That means that if you have 5 or more new cards (including authorized users) in the previous 24 months, you will be denied for ANY new card application.  In this post, I am going to highlight some of the better Chase cards that you should consider getting before the rule change.

4,500 Avios Flights From Berlin

Since the British Airways award chart devaluation in the US this month, I have been trying to highlight some of the bargains you can still find with Avios.  Remember that the Zone 1 changes only impacted flights departing or arriving in the US!  There are still 4,500 Avios options available outside of the US.  In this post, I am going to share a few 4,500 Avios flights from Berlin.

Dallas to Tokyo First Class Award Space on American Airlines

In searching for award space on flights from my home airport, DFW, I noticed that from Dallas to Tokyo First Class award space on American Airlines is very open right now!  This is a great way to get some use out of your AAdvantage miles before the fast approaching March 22 devaluation.  After the change, you will pay a whopping 80,000 miles one-way in First Class instead of 62,500!

Is The British Airways Travel Together Ticket Worth It

Is the British Airways Travel Together Ticket worth it?  The Travel Together Ticket can be earned by spending $30,000 per year on your Chase British Airways Visa.  Normally this is probably not such a hot topic, but considering the 100,000 Avios signup bonus currently available on that card after $20,000 in spending, I imagine that there are far more people considering whether or not it is worth it to complete the additional $10,000 in spending required for the Travel Together Ticket.
