Several hotel credit cards give you a free night at one of their establishments every year when you pay the annual fee. The cool thing is this free night benefit is often is worth more than the cost of keeping the credit card, doesn’t require you to spend a certain amount of money on the card, and doesn’t require you to have any points in your account. It’s simply a totally a free night, including tax.

It makes sense to try to get the most value out of the free night and I’ve read articles listing the places around the world where you can get the most expensive room. I decided instead of that approach, I’d look at a place many people travel to each year. Walt Disney World (WDW). If you can stretch your vacation one more day by using a free night, that could be very valuable to you and your family.

Credit Card Review: Chase Sapphire Preferred

For a while, the Chase Sapphire Preferred was the darling of the miles and points blog universe. It earned valuable Ultimate Rewards points with bonus points for spending on travel and dining expenses. Those points could then be transferred to partners like Hyatt and United. What happened that forced the Sapphire Preferred into the back seat? The introduction of the Sapphire Reserve, that’s what happened. With a big brother that gave a larger bonus for spending in the same categories and more perks, the Sapphire Preferred fell into obscurity. Is it still worth it to carry the Preferred in your wallet? Lets find out… Continue reading “Credit Card Review: Chase Sapphire Preferred”

How To Avoid Extra Credit Card Fees During International Travel

Going on an international trip is very exciting but it can also be very expensive. Using a credit card to pay for purchases when traveling internationally is often the best way to get a good exchange rate and the rate your bank gets will be better than the one you’ll get on your own if you exchange cash. Using a card also means that you don’t have to carry around a bunch of cash with you.
