Weekly Update (November 16, 2015)

Things are cruising along nicely here.  I used free gas tactics to get $30.83 in free gas in the past 5 days.  Nicoleen’s Citi Hilton Reserve bonus spend is completed.  We got Nicoleen’s authorized user card in the mail for my Chase Hyatt and she made a purchase with it, earning us 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points.  And to top it off, I finally posted a couple articles I’ve been meaning to finish for some time now.

Credit Card News
The Chase Sapphire Preferred sign-up bonus has been jacked up to 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points!  Another 5,000 bonus is available for adding an authorized user.  With the $4k required spend for the bonus an at least $1k of that in the 2x categories of dining or travel, getting this card is worth 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points!  That’s enough for a round trip to Europe during peak season (when transferred to United, for example).  My referral links for this card are expired but if you are interested in getting it, here’s the direct link to the Chase website.  Or you can try clicking through another blogger’s links, but make sure the offer is for the jacked up bonus and not the standard 40,000 + 5,000 offer.
