Hi, I'm from California and I'm going to be going to grad school in Washington D.C. starting next year, for at least a year and possibly more.
I would like to come back to Cali as often as possible and it would be nice if I could spend as little as possible on airline tickets.
Between this August and the end of the year I'm sure I would like to make 4 or 5 flights one way.
How much would someone typically have to spend to get all of that for free (coach is fine, any airline is fine.)
I have a credit score of 705 and Amex just sent me a pre-approved offer for their standard gold card in the mail. Is that probably the best I can do with my credit score? 23 years old, never a late payment, almost five years of credit history.
Lastly, let's say I charge 10,000 dollars to my card this year - approximately how many flights from LA to DC does that get me, on Amex Gold? on other cards?
