Results of 2017 Reader Survey

This year it’s all about travel tips and travel deals

The top two types of posts you like are travel tips/travel hacks and travel deals.  Posts about miles and points, trip reports and reviews, and credit card information tied for third. A big change from last year’s preference of posts on miles and points, travel tips, and trip reports and reviews.

Blog Changes

1.  Travel Deals

Because everyone who completed the survey said they wanted more travel deals, I’ll start posting them again. But it may mean more than two posts a week…

2.  Two Posts Per Week

All of you said you’re happy with two posts a week. Less is more, I get it. 🙂

For the most part, I’ll stick to keeping your inbox empty. But when there’s a travel deal or something that you should know about sooner vs later, I’m going to post. And I’m assuming you’ll be okay with that. 🙂

3.  Table of Contents

Say good bye to the table of contents. I added the table of contents at the beginning of the year. Because many of you said it makes you skim the posts, you may be missing out on some details. So I’m probably going to trash it.

4.  Credit Card Page

A lot of you said you had no idea you could use our links to apply for credit cards.

Pro-tip: You’ll find the latest offers on our credit card page.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card is the best card to get started in the world of miles and points. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining, $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.

Chase Freedom Unlimited®

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of an additional 1.5% cash back on all your purchases up to $20,000 your first year.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal, 3% cash back at drugstores and restaurants (including delivery and takeout), 1.5% cash back on all other purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card or Ink Business Cash® Credit Card, you can use your points to travel for free.
