Hi Everyone, Hello! I'm a newbie, both to MilePoint and to this whole idea of churning cards/earning FF points. I'm enjoying reading all the threads here. I'm hoping you all wouldn't mind helping me out. I received a targeted offer from SW for the 50000 pts with $2000 spend. I noticed in the "exclusive card member benefits" section of the offer, it says, " Redeem for International Flights." Huh? I didn't think SW was part of any alliances or anything? Then, I checked and it says to click on the " More rewards" butoonnon the Chase website and you can use them to get international flights? Has anyone done this? Is it easy to find choices of flights you want (I would use them to go to Europe mostly)? Do you need tons and tons of reward points to redeem them? I'm just trying to figure out if I should I apply for just this card (since for my domestic flights I always use SW anyway). I would like to get a few cards rather than churn a whole bunch. Right now I just have the CapOne Venture cash-back card. I would probably pick up a Chase Sapphire Preferred and a Starwood Preferred Guest too (apply for those in June). Or, maybe skip the CSP if I get the SW card instead? Is there a reason to do/not this? Are they (the SW points) not really as valuable/transferable as a CSP and SPG when redeeming for international flights? Thanks for any tips and I look forward to reading and learning more about this. THANK YOU.
