Chase Now Taking Applications For The Freedom Unlimited

Chase is now taking applications for the new Freedom Unlimited card in-branch!  They announced earlier this month the launch of the Freedom Unlimited, which will earn 1.5x Ultimate Rewards points per $1 on every purchase.  This will NOT replace the original Freedom with the rotating 5x categories!  Both cards are going to co-exist.

Using United to Book Lufthansa Business Class

United is great for booking award travel since they don’t charge high taxes or surcharges, and using United to book Lufthansa Business Class is great for other reasons as well.  Sometimes you may be looking for award availability for more than 2 people, and this means that you can pretty much forget about First Class.  The availability isn’t there.  With Business Class, you have a chance to find award availability for a larger group.  In this post, I’m going to share a recent award flight search for a group of 6 people.

New Chase Freedom In The Works?

Update:  Million Mile Secrets confirms that this change is coming and that the old Freedom with 5x categories will no longer be available to new applicants.  Since they have a business relationship with Chase, this information should be reliable.

Is there a new Chase Freedom in the works?  Credit Boards user C316 reported yesterday that Chase is planning to offer a new card called the Freedom Unlimited that offers 1.5% cash back on all transactions.  The new card would have no rotating 5% categories.

Booking First Class On The A380 With Lufthansa

I figured I would talk today about booking First Class on the A380 with Lufthansa.  I travel to Germany frequently, and Lufthansa is one of my favorite carriers, despite the taxes and surcharges.  Their premium cabin experience is much better than US airlines.  The A380 also gives you the opportunity to fly on the upper deck!

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.
