What am i doing wrong? You sure you're filtering on nonstop? With stops i'm getting a ton of days that are 70k, but shitty stops.

How does the Platinum AMEX compare to the CSR? Got a pre-approval in the mail with 125k points if you spend $6k in the first 3 months. Seems like the benefits offset the yearly fee pretty well too.

Edit: the fee is $695 so still pretty high even after monthly statement credits for travel fees, etc, but I think if you utilize all of them it's at least $100 more than the annual fee.

Edit: I take that back--the fee is $695 so still pretty high even after monthly statement credits for travel fees, etc.
I couldn’t justify the plat.

The venture x seems like the jam right now. Already used my $300 travel credit. Annual fee of $395 is a bargain.

IME, it was worth getting for the sign up bonus but I didn’t renew it.

If you have a 125k offer it’s worth it at least for the first year. Max out the airline credit and all the others.

I have CSR and chase business ink preferred. I transfer points to CSR for the 1.5 on travel. Does anybody have experience with ink unlimited? It says 1.5% cash back but would it have same points system aside from the 2 and 3 point categories? I don’t use those much so not so worried about the extra points.

Best use of Amex points is to transfer to one of their travel partners, correct? Trying to utilize my CSR and Amex points to get the most out of them.

Have an AA citi card for AA miles currently.

If I want to churn a bonus for miles to transfer to AA travel, what should I go for? :dunno:
