And its time to start thinking about what to do for my VR spend for the rest of time until it gets shut down at CVS. I am in BOS, so as far as I know the only place to pick up the 'nilla is there. I have to try cumbie and be sure but the word on the street is they are strict cash only. If anyone else has hints I am open to them. Getting to a WalMart is actually a big pain in the butt. 30-45min drive though with traffic it could be 2 hours. So, I figure we can all talk about our plans now that we have lost our HHonor. Cards that I have to choose from: Amex Gold Premer Rewards HHonors Surpass Starwood Business Chase Sapphire Ink Bold UA Select (2xGas/Groceries/Restaurants/Home Improvement grandfathered in) Priority Club Select Citi Nothing Worth mentioning (AA Platinum, No Fee HHonors Card, Thow Away TY Card) Capital One Venture. The Only options I can come up with are 1. Direct Purchase with Starwood. Upside: Everyone Loves Starwood. Could make gold status Downside: Still a 1x 2. Double the Miles Double the Fees Purchases from a Grocery Store on $500 gift cards with UA Select / Amex Gold Purchase Reloads with Gift Cards at CVS Upside: Earns double the rate (ie 20k UA miles per month) Hit Amex 15k bonus Downside: Paying nearly $0.01 per point $200 in fees vs $80 For direct purchase. 3. Direct Purchase on Capital One. Upside: Makes Cash Money. $120 Profit per month assuming the points are used for travel Can use to pay off things I do in Iceland next weekend over the next few months Downside: Having 20,000 Capital 1 Miles much less useful on the upper side than anyone else's I am thinking a mixture. IF nothing else changes, do something like 5k on Amex 5k Starwood and hit the 15k Amex Bonus and the SPG Gold for 2014/2015 if I turn the corner in December Am I missing any good angles, or is there a an app strategy I should go for? 90 days is up 5th of June so thats another possibility. What is your situation looking like? Where's your Drugstore spending going next?
