Blog Giveaway 15000 Marriott Points
Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Have the Same Loyalty Program. So You Can Use Marriott Points to Stay at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay!

Folks new to our hobby sometimes shy away from credit cards with large annual fees.  They might not feel paying a big fee is worth it.

But if you’ve been collecting miles & points for a while, you know many of those cards come with amazing benefits that can easily negate the high annul fee.  And sometimes even make you a profit!

For example, the Chase Ritz-Carlton comes with a $450 annual fee.  But you’ll get a $300 annual travel credit each calendar year which you can use for qualifying airline purchases, like baggage fees, seat upgrades, etc.  And because you receive this perk each calendar year, you’ll earn the bonus after opening the card in 2017, and AGAIN in 2018.  Before your second annual fee is due!

And when you enter this contest, you’ll have a chance to win 15,000 Marriott points, which can be redeemed at Ritz-Carlton hotels. 😉

Over $1,000 in fees!

Like others, I’m so disappointed with this new model of having to share on social media just to enter your giveaway. As others have said, it’s a shame to see the direction this site has taken in recent months. I used to come here pretty exclusively for travel news, bargains and hints but now I rarely click on any links in the daily emails. I’ll check back now and then to see if things improve but for now I’m going to stick with other less commercialized sites.

My thought exactly.

And it would be nice if their was some feedback on this from the website’s founders. But there is none anymore. It seems they don’t really care about their “loyal readers”.

paying 300.00 in annual fees, but have saved over 800.00 this year alone. Free hotel rooms, baggage, and free flights. Charge everything and pay off each month to make it worthwhile
