I’ve been in the credit card game for a year or so now and am trying to see what methods are most effective to maximize you point usage.
Current lineup is CSP, CFU, Amex Gold, Discover It, Skymiles Gold. I found airlines are the best use of points, but how do y’all make sure you’re using them well?
My method right now is tally up the flights on google flights first, then hit Southwest to see points vs miles, then go to Amex Travel, Chase Travel, and then once I’ve narrowed it down I’ll go to the airline’s websites/apps to see what their awards are.
Is there a benefit to transferring points to airlines rather than going through Chase Travel or Amex Travel? It seems like you can be overwhelmed quickly, are there certain methods that y’all think are better?
