Which Bonus offers are just points and not transferrable to various airlines. They always state value but the real value is in putting them in to airlines for miles.??

I want to take a one week trip to Ireland with my 20 year old son in March 2018. I got the American Airlines Citi Advantage Platinum Select card with 50,000 miles if spending $3,000 in 3 months. I still need to get more points to travel free (Milesaver) in March and also would like to get free hotel.. I will be traveling from Tampa, Florida.

What other credit cards do you suggest I get?

Thanks for all that you do!

I want to go on an African safari(anywhere but South Africa) are there any hotel chains that own or partner with any all inclusive safaris in Africa I would could points to pay for?

I need to be able to pay my mortgage and car payments with my Chase credit card. Since you can’t load a bluebird with a gift card how do you do it now?

I need to transfer SPG points to an airline. I would like to go to Sicily next year. I have 68,000 avios but I do not want to pay the ridiculous surcharges. Should I put miles into an Alaska account or Flying Blue? Which one would be most economical to fly economy from Washington DC?
