In February I got the Chase Sapphire Preferred card & will get 50K Ultimate Rewards in another month or two (depending on billing cycle). I'll be ready to obtain a new CC soon! So a recommendation is needed, and if anybody can give me an action plan that would be GREAT! I currently have the Delta Skymiles AMEX. The $95 annual fee pays for our luggage & I enjoy the zone 2 boarding. My annual household credit card spend is 20K (or $1500-$1700 month). Mostly groceries, gas, eating out, utilities, big ticket items, and travel (mostly road trips 10-14 nights/year at Mom & Pop or resort type motels and we take a cruise every 12-18 months). We obtain little mileage from flying as we only take 1 or 2 domestic trips each year. My ultimate goal is a 7 to 10 night trip for 2 to Maui in 2013 (January, February, March, or November). Perhaps if I go a less aggressive route it won't happen until 2014. Needed are airline tickets (coach is fine), Car Rental (economy is fine), and Hotels (We have stayed at the Hyatt Regency Maui & would like to stay there again, if possible, but anything equivalent will do). The closest airport is GFK and I can be there in 10 minutes. The only commercial airline service [unfortunately] is Delta. I could drive to FAR, which is about a 70 mile drive each way, but that means gas, parking fees, possible hotel stay due to bad weather (or very early/late flight), additional time off work, but if I can get an expensive trip for little or nothing, I'd give it a try. FAR airlines are: Delta, United, American Eagle (same as AA?) DL Miles: I currently have 130,000 & husband has 42,000. We do have enough miles for airline tickets but maybe the miles could be used for hotel or car rental instead. AA Miles: I have 6,000 United Miles: We each have 8,900 It may be hard to convince my husband to take out a credit card too. Would be nice as he's a sales rep & puts on another 1K a month on his credit card (GM card, and we have used the $3,500 rebate dollars once already, but our next vehicle may be a different make so I just cringe each time the statement comes). We each have credit scores of 800+. He just thinks this whole idea of getting points/miles for nothing is too good to be true. Maybe in another year or two he will understand. So for now I would like some thoughts on which card I should take out next. Thanks.
