Spending after reaching 30k Bonus

Postby anthonyri » Wed Jul 23, 2014 5:09 pm

Hi everyone,

I've been reading the forums for a bit and have found a lot of information on here very useful! This is my first post and just have a quick question.

I got the AMEX PRG Jan 1st and have reached my 30k spending bonus for the year last week which was an additional 15,000 points.

Should I open up another card to take advantage of another annual bonus or should I just keep using my AMEX to rack up points?

I was looking at the Chase Sapphire Preferred card because I go out a lot for drinks / dinners so I figured I could get the 2x bonus every time I go out. I don't think that card has an annual bonus but the 2X bonus would help make up for that.

I also have Bank of America Cash Back rewards but rarely use that card.

Any input will help! Thanks!

Only you can really determine if its worth it. The card has a 95 annual fee which is going up (not sure if it's been raised yet) and is really meant to be a travel card.

You need to compare the benefits vs the potential spend you'd put on the card to determine if it fits you as well as look at the perks it has. That's an analysis which you are in the best position to make and we would only be guessing at. Just Google the CSP and look at your potential use and spend on the card, and decide.
