What is the best hotel card to get? Currently have reward numbers will all the major players, but no cc's for any of them. Me and my fiance have the companion pass with southwest and want to sign up for a hotel card with great bonuses and rewards to really drop the cost of vacations.

How do I pick the best airline and hotel chain for reward status? I'm about to start traveling a lot more next year, and I don't have any real strong loyalties. I live in the north-east in a mid-sized city, and will be traveling mostly in the north-east. My airport is primarily served by American, Delta and Southwest, but isn't a hub for any airline.

Thinking about cashing out my City TY points for cash and closing Citi Premier if they don't give me a retention bonus. Am I missing any obvious plays to get significantly more than 1c per point? There are occasionally transfer bonuses but i mostly fly Delta and Southwest and the only tempting one was Virgin and the ability to book Delta first class for a decent rate but that was a few years ago, not sure that is still an option. No international travel planned in immediate future.

Does southwest ever board people out of the check in order? I arrived just in time for my group's boarding and I asked this woman for her boarding number and she told me boarding is out of order. The whole selling point of SW is that you have more favorable seating options depending on how quickly you check in and board. So I ignored her and she and her husband got offended. Trying to figure out whether they were trying to cut in line or whether I'm really in the wrong.

Have a somewhat confusing question hoping to get some insight. I had to cancel a Southwest flight last year due to covid. They issued a credit but informed me I had to book a flight that was before 9/22/21 or the credit would be lost. Here’s my question: if I book the flight so it is before the 22nd and use the credit to pay for it, if I decide to change flight dates to after 9/22 would that transfer over? Or would I have to forfeit the credit and pay for the flight. Hope this makes sense!
