Income Taxes: When You Should (and Should NOT) Use a Credit Card!

It’s that time of year again!  April 15, 2015, is the IRS tax filing deadline, and readers often ask if it’s worth paying taxes with a credit card to earn miles and points.

I’ve written about paying income taxes with a credit card, and whether doing so will code as a cash advance (it won’t).

But because you’ll pay processing fees of up to 2.35%, it’s generally not worth it except under specific circumstances.

New IHG Rewards Club Dining Members Can Get Up to 5,000 IHG Points

Some folks are getting offers of 80,000 IHG points on the IHG card.  However, Emily and I weren’t 1 of them. :(.

For folks who weren’t targeted or who aren’t eligible for the 70,000 IHG point offer but want to earn IHG points quickly, there’s another way.

If you haven’t signed-up for IHG’s Rewards Club dining program, you can get up to 5,000 IHG points.

An Easy Way to See Where You Can Go With British Airways Avios Points

First, I must say, I love maps!  So I am very biased in favor of this free tool that quickly shows where you can fly with British Airways Avios points!

One of the best uses of British Airways Avios points is for short-haul domestic flights on partner airlines like American Airlines, US Airways, and Alaska Airlines.

That’s because they have a distance-based award chart, which means you’ll pay fewer points (and no fuel surcharges) for shorter trips.

The visual map tool by Wandering Aramean makes it much easier to figure out how many British Airways Avios points you’ll need for a short-haul, nonstop award flight.
