Miles and Points Update

1. New IHG PointBreaks list is now bookable. You can transfer points from Ultimate Rewards, though, it’s not the best use of that program. I don’t recommend you do the “IHG cash+points trick,”  because you would risk account closure. You can Google it if you wish.

On to the next one.

2. There is currently a new $50 sign-up bonus for Fidelity Amex card. It has been as high as $75 in the past, so keep that in mind. I’ve updated the links in my best long-term cards list. The card does not pay me commission.

3. Today is the last day to take advantage of 5% bonus on gas station purchases with your Chase Freedom. If you have a store that sells Visa gift cards or other prepaid products, you could consider taking advantage of this promotion. Even with a 1% fee, you would be making  a decent profit, provided you can easily liquidate the cards.

4. Today only get 1.5 %  cash back on purchase of Amex gift cards from Topcashback (my link). Remember not to use any discount codes or coupons. (h/t Frequent Miler)

5. If you have a Chase Ink Plus card, watch your email for a possibility to refer others and get 10,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards when this person applies by October 10th. Dan from Pointswithacrew mentioned that you can also go to to see if you are eligible.

Your friends in turn can get 70,000 points after spending $5,000 in 3 months. Annual fee of $95 is not waived. If you applied within the last 60 days, send a secure message and see if Chase can match it.

This offer is as good as it gets, though only you can decide if it’s right for you. I do make a commission on this increased bonus if you choose to apply through my site. I’m not sure what the end date is, but can only assume it’s also October 10th. Thanks for supporting my blog, as always!

On a related note, it looks like Chase Ink Bold will be discontinued soon, according to Dansdeals. is still showing it, though my affiliate site doesn’t.

  1. This Chase Ink offer is making me feel giddy, like how I get around Frozone from the Incredibles at Disney World. That is a lot of UR Points. It’s moments like these that I wish I had at least started up a blog in the past few months.

    It may be worth a shot. I am trying to hold off on apps until the New Year but it’s hard to pass this up.

    • @Cheapblackdad Your wisecracks and expressions make ME feel giddy! 🙂 You should totally start a blog, I’ll read it. You are welcome to do a guest post on my blog anytime, I’m not kidding. I’m not making enough to pay you for it, but maybe a small Amazon gift card?
      As far as this offer goes, that is totally up to you. It is a very good bonus, no question. Only you can decide if this is the right time to go for it.
