I’m not saying you are crazy like me and that, after you participate in a bonus promotion of any kind, like last month’s World of Hyatt credit card promotion where you got 5,000 bonus World of Hyatt points if you made 50 transactions on your World of Hyatt Credit card in the month of February, that you check the Hyatt app every single day until the points post.

But if you were like me, then today is the big day…

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

hyatt 5000 bonus points

Remember that you got 5,000 points for 50 transactions within the month of February, 25 got you 2,500 points and 10 got you 1,000 points. I, of course, went for the 50 😉

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.


  1. Yes, I got my Hyatt bonus for making 50 purchases of $1.10 reloading my Amazon account. It was silly making all those small charges but worth the 5,000 Hyatt points. Your post is where I got the idea to make those 50 purchases. Thanks you for the great info.
