You can use PYB with chase at 1.5x if you want immediate cash. Otherwise international J/F always offer the best cpp. Hyatt is also pretty good (UR).

Actually PYB is pay yourself back. Close enough though 🤣

The best redemption value has always been long haul international flights in J (transferring points to an airline, NOT booking through AmEx/Chase travel and paying with points). You can sometimes get good value with very high end hotels that have astronomical nightly rates (e.g., ski hotels, island destinations, luxury hotels in big cities).

Redeeming chase points for Hyatt stays is usually great value

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
