“This Hobby Provides Me the Equivalent of a $20,000 per Year Raise”

Welcome to the next installment of our interview series where folks share their thoughts about Big Travel with Small Money!

Miles & Points Interview:  Travel Miles 101

Alexi Zemsky and Brad Barrett write Travel Miles 101 to show folks how to earn and redeem miles the easy way.

They offer a free 15-day email course to get you up to speed on the basics of both earning and redeeming travel miles & points.  And as part of the course, they offer members access to a private Facebook group community with over 2,000 members.

And they say the combined knowledge of their graduates in this group is an excellent resource for crowdsourcing answers to specific questions.  It’s a safe place for people to ask questions and share successes and frustrations as they learn more about travel rewards.

Which card(s) have the most benefits for annual spending?  I spend more than $5,000 a month on credit cards these days, but I feel like I ran out of options for sign-up bonuses as I’ve had most of the cards in the past.

What do you use as your default credit card for everyday purchases to build points?  Could you give me couple of suggestions?

Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase British Airways, Which 1 Should You Pick?

UPDATE:   The offer for the British Airways card in this post has expired.  But check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

For a limited time, there’s an offer to earn a total of 100,000 British Airways Avios points with the Chase British Airways card.  But you have to spend $20,000 on the card to unlock the full sign-up bonus.

With the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, you’ll earn 40,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4,000 on the card within the 1st 3 months of account opening, which is more manageable for most folks.  And Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to British Airways Avios points (and other airline and hotel partners) at a 1:1 ratio.

So which 1 is a better choice?
