Why You Should Put Your Airline Cards In a Drawer
points are also tremendously flexible They have the most transfer partners of
any card. For example, there are 31
different airline transfer partners! Why is this important? You never know which airline is going to have
the best deal at the time you are booking.
Having flexibility allows you the freedom you don’t get with a specific
airline card. With your specific airline
miles earning card, you earn miles at a 1:1 ratio of dollars spent to miles
earned for everyday purchases. With the
Starwood card you will also earn points at a 1:1 ratio. But, when you transfer Starpoints to almost any
one of it’s 31 transfer partners, you get a 25% bonus when you transfer in
increments of 20,000 points. For each 20,000 points transferred, you get UR 25,000 miles. Not only are you beating the earning rate of
your airline specific card on everyday spending, but you can use the miles on
any of the 31 partner airlines! How’s
that for flexibility? I’m not saying
that you shouldn’t hold an airline specific card, but put it in the drawer for
everyday spending. Get yourself a
Starwood personal and business card today! The sign up bonus is currently 25,000 Starpoints.
