Sunday Someday: Cleveland

Share with a friend

The Sunday Someday weekly series features bucket list destinations and how to get there using miles and points.

Yes, I know you’re thinking, “Cleveland and bucket list, that’s a misnomer.”  Tahiti for some people, Cleveland for others, to each their own. A city that is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame can’t be all that bad.

Today’s Sunday Someday is Cleveland.

If you want the best weather, summer and early fall are the best times to visit Cleveland.

You can use airline miles and points to get to Cleveland.

You can fly round-trip coach for 9,000 British Airways Avios points, if you’re within 650 miles from Cleveland.

Don’t have British Airways Avios points?  You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to British Airways.

No Chase Ultimate Rewards points?  20,000 United miles gets you a round-trip coach ticket to Cleveland.

Southwest Airlines also flies to Cleveland. With the Southwest Companion Pass, your companion can fly for free. You can get the Southwest Companion Pass after earning 110,000 Southwest points a calendar year.  The fastest way to the Southwest Companion Pass is by signing up for two Southwest credit cards.

Why should Cleveland be on your bucket list?

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.
