Miles & Points Interview: Two Bad Tourists

Auston and David
How and when did you start collecting miles and points?
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?
