Miles to Memories Recap
Welcome to the weekly “Best of” Miles to Memories recap series. Here you will find links to all of the still relevant posts from the past week. We saw a ton of limited time deals that ended quickly this past week. Make sure to subscribe to our daily newsletter so you don’t miss out and join our Facebook Group for daily discussion and exclusives not available anywhere else!
This week was all about credit cards. The new Barclay’s Card went live and it’s not so great, neither are the changes to the Southwest Cards. We reviewed the new IHG card and discussed ways to maximize the 5% categories from Chase Freedom and Discover It. We also published a guide to help you figure out whether you should book using Chase Ultimate Rewards through the travel portal or transfer them to your loyalty accounts. Please let us know other topics you’d like to see covered in future.
To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!
