How to Get a $700 Ritz-Carlton Stay for 20,000 Starwood Points

You can use miles and points in whichever way makes sense for you.  One of my favorite ways is for a memorable experience to last a lifetime.

And because you can now transfer Starwood points to Marriott and Ritz-Carlton, you’ll be able to book unforgettable luxury hotel stays at Ritz-Carlton hotels using Starwood points.  Because Marriott and Ritz-Carlton essentially have the same rewards program, just with different marketing and branding.

This is terrific option if you’re celebrating a special occasion like an anniversary, birthday, honeymoon, proposal, or retirement!

Do You Know This Easy Way to Track Your Chase Freedom 5X Spending?

I love having the Chase Freedom card in my wallet.  And so does Emily

It has no annual fee.  So it’s a fantastic card to keep forever because it’s free to have.

And the card has quarterly rotating bonus categories that earns 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points, or 5% cash back.  For example, the current quarterly bonus categories (ends December 31, 2016) includes department stores, drugstores, and wholesale clubs including Costco.

Tracking your Chase Freedom 5X spend is important!  Because you can monitor how close you are to reaching the $1,500 maximum each quarter.  This way, you’ll be able to get the most rewards!
