Get Your Money! Minimum Redemption Amounts for Cash Back Cards

Cash back cards allow you to turn the points you earn with your card into a statement credit or a deposit into your bank account.  And some cards will mail you a check.

You can often redeem for cash back at a rate of 1 cent per point.  You’ll get a much better value by earning points towards travel with most cards.

Better Offer Returns for Alaska Airlines Card: 25,000 Miles + $100 Statement Credit!

I wrote about a better offer for the Bank of America Alaska airlines card last month.  And now, via View From the Wing, there’s a new working link!

You’ll earn 25,000 Alaska Airlines miles when your account is approved.  And a $100 statement credit after you spend $1,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account.

That more than makes up for the $75 annual fee, which is NOT waived for the 1st year.

A Stopover in Vibrant Hong Kong: Part 5 – Eating in Hong Kong

Daraius and I took my parents on an around-the-world trip to the MaldivesIndia, and Hong Kong.  My step-dad, Mark, had never been outside the US, and my mom had only been to India.

We had a free stopover in Hong Kong with our Cathay Pacific flight back to the US.

Daraius and I thought it would be a great experience for them to see Hong Kong because it’s such a dynamic city!  It’s also very different from both India and the Maldives.
