Up to this point my husband and I have just randomly applied to whatever cards had amazing bonuses, so after using some for a few trips we have a motley collection of points. But now we want to earn with a goal in mind. We would like to take our family of four to Europe in business class in 2014, so I'd like to start now building up the points we'll need. I was hoping to use the Grand Slam and build up US Air miles, but it hasn't happened yet, so looking for plan B. Here's what we have so far: ME: BA: 33,722 DL: 49,993 UA: 11,117 AA: 155,000 (going to be using 100,000 for a trip soon) HIM: BA: 205,721 DL: 9,611 AA: 33,000 We've both had the BA card. I've already had both personal CitiAA cards, him only the Visa (denied the Amex). I had a CO card but cancelled before it became UA. I have a no-fee DL Amex from a long time ago. He had an Amex Gold but cancelled before the fee. Each have a Marriott card. Haven't applied for anything in over 8 months. So where would you go from here? What programs/cards would you focus on to get a family to Europe in comfort from the west coast (Bay Area)? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!!
