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.
But because you’ll pay processing fees of up to 2.35%, it’s generally not worth it except under specific circumstances.
Here’s how to pay taxes with a credit card and when it might make sense for you.
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.
The points are easy to get but is it worth it?
The sale is good for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays only. Great for business travel, but not for a weekend getaway.
If you live close to the sale cities this could be a great deal!
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.
The site will save you a lot of time. Now you don’t have to look up distances (by using Great Circle Mapper for example) or award charts. I’ll show you how to use it!
And I’ll remind you of 3 easy ways to collect lots of British Airways Avios points for your flights!
