Points Update January 2017

Second post!

If you remember my post from last month, this will become a monthly item on the writing board.  Rather than just updating my Keeping Score page, I want to explain a few things.  You know, why I do what I do.

If I just put numbers in front of you, I’m the only one that’s going to benefit from it.  If I explain those numbers, I hope it helps you a little bit too!

My goal?

I want to get everyone travelling a bit more, and a bit cheaper, too.

First Impressions: Bank of America Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card

My second business credit card!

When I applied for my first business card, I only based it on my occasional reselling of items on Amazon or on Ebay.  Luckily, American Express was happy to stroke my ego, agreeing that I had a “business” and I snagged a Starwood Preferred Business Credit Card.

Now, I’m happy to say my side hustle is actually holding its own.

So much so, that I had to increase my spending power.  I not only requested (and was approved) for a credit line increase on my Starwood card, but I took out a new Alaska Airlines Visa Business Card from Bank of America!

Points Update December 2016

Hey everyone!

Remember that Keeping Score page I created a while back?

I totally understand if you don’t remember.  I realized the page wasn’t entirely useful in its current state.  You see, I update it every month.  That’s great for me, I get to see how far I’ve come.  But for somebody just finding this blog, it’s not so helpful.  So you have a lot of points?  Cool.

It’d be a lot more helpful if I explained how to get those, huh?

I’ve decided to write a monthly post, outlining the biggest changes and updates to my portfolio of points and miles.  This will be the inaugural post, and just about every month I’ll write a new update, to coincide with updating the page itself.
