Following for advice on best travel cards

Best approach is to get flexible points from Chase, which you can transfer to a variety of airlines and hotels on a 1:1 basis or redeem like cash through the Chase travel portal. I’d start with a Chase Sapphire Preferred. The current sign up bonus is 60k points. Please DM me for referral link - don’t give the commission to some rich blogger by clicking through a website! 😃

Chase for sure! I’ve been stacking points for a couple years and have earned almost a million. And in no way have I spent that much $. The points easily transfer if you prefer. Some really great Fb groups with lots of info as well

Depends what your point spend strategy is. Are you looking for point spending sweet spots so you can burn points for premium cabin flights and lavish hotels or are you looking for a more simple ROI. On the more simple the Chase rewards cards are good. I'd also recommend the BofA premium rewards if you can also get over $100k of AUM at ML edge or some other way of hitting their platinum status tier. That card then basically gives a 5.25% cashback on travel spend. You stay free agent and it is simple.
