Meghan: Thanks Daraius! I used a recent AMEX offer to make ~$1,000 by reselling Xboxes I bought through Dell on eBay and Craigslist. It took some time and effort, but for me, it was worth it!
Reselling Can Be a Lucrative Hobby. But It Takes Time and Preparation, so It Isn’t for Everyone!

If you don’t know all 20 of Marriott’s hotel brands, you could be missing out on redeeming your points at some great hotels!
That’s because several brands, like Protea or Autograph Collection, don’t come with the Marriott name. So some folks might see a hotel with an unfamiliar name, and miss a chance to redeem their points!
And now that the Chase Marriott card comes with 100,000 Marriott points after spending $5,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening, there’s even more reason to become familiar with Marriott’s hotel brands.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Harold, commented:
If I downgrade my Chase Sapphire Preferred to the Chase Freedom Unlimited, can I still transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points from the Freedom Unlimited to the Chase Sapphire Reserve?
On its own, the points you earn from the Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each toward travel or for cash back.
But when you pair it with another eligible Chase Ultimate Rewards card like the Sapphire Reserve, you’ll have the flexibility to combine points and transfer them to terrific airline and hotel partners.
With a downgrade, you’ll also avoid duplicate benefits and save on annual fees. That’s why after getting the Sapphire Reserve, I downgraded the Sapphire Preferred to the no annual fee Freedom Unlimited.
