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!
Tracking Chase Freedom 5X Bonus Spending Can Help You Earn Points Toward Big Travel Like a Free Night at the Park Hyatt Chicago!

The 3 airlines are offering limited time fare sales. So you’ll want to act quickly if you want to get in on these deals.
For example, I found a one-way Frontier Airlines flight from Atlanta to Orlando for ~$19 on January 10, 2017. Or a one-way JetBlue flight from New York to Los Angeles for ~$105!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Mark, emailed:
A few months ago, I applied for the Chase Southwest personal and small business credit cards to get the Southwest Companion Pass. I was only approved for the Chase Southwest personal card, so I’ve only earned 55,000 Southwest points this year.
I do not have any Starwood points, but I DO have 80,000 Marriott Rewards points. Can I transfer 55,000 Marriott Rewards points to my Southwest mileage account to get a total of 110,000 Southwest points and earn a Southwest Companion Pass?
Thanks for reaching out, Mark!
Marriott points do not transfer to Southwest at a ratio of 1:1, so you’ll need more Marriott points to get the additional 55,000 Southwest points for a Companion Pass. And because it’s later in the year, you’ll have to earn the remaining Southwest points fast!
The Southwest Companion Pass Cuts Airfare Expenses for You and a Travel Buddy in Half. Here’s How to Earn It Through a Transfer From Marriott!
I’ll explain some options for how to get the Southwest Companion Pass quickly!
