Pay your $20,000 a month in 'discretionary expenses' with your CC.

Im about to get a rewards card also. Havent gotten around to it, would have pocketed a couple hundred by now So since Im a full time student and about to go into the workforce, I only want cash (not a consultant so I dont have much use for Starwood points) Is Amex Blue the best way to go? Thanks

I love my Amex. I bought a new iPhone, accidentally dropped it and got a cracked screen. Amex refunds the money. I get a new iPhone. Buy a Marc Jacobs belt at the boutique (no returns). It breaks. Get refunded. Also, roadside assistance, they'll call a tow truck and tell your family what happened. Lots of rewards... I think I've flown to LA and Seattle for free at least 5 times now. If you don't have an Amex yet, you're missing out man.

Do you have the Blue Sky card?

Are those things worth it? I have a couple of sig cards and never used the concierge service. Oh yeah, and AMEX has the best rewards hands down if you charge a lot.

I only had to make one purchase after I first signed up and they gave me a bonus 25,000 points (about $300 in travel credit) which was enough to get me to Seattle through Jet Blue. Points accrue pretty fast depending on how much you spend.

I have the Chase Freedom card. It's terrible APR-wise, but I got $200.00 cash back with my first purchase. Plus, I get 1% cash back on everything, and 5% back on categories that change quarterly. Right now, grocery stores are 5%. Last quarter, gas was 5%.

Second on the AmEx SPG card, although Starwood is not nearly ubiquitous enough - there are plenty of places I end up where there isn't a nearby Starwood hotel (whatever, just burn points at the Tokyo Westin Ebisu on my annual trip).

Since not everywhere accepts Amex (especially here on the west coast), check Flyertalk for the best current deals out there on travel cards.

For those of us who are not quite baller status, what do you think of the Capital One Venture Rewards Card? They give you two "miles" for every dollar spent. Air travel fares on any airline are reimbursed according to a formula in which the fare is multiplied by 100 to calculate its cost in miles. In other words, a $350 ticket would cost 35,000 miles which would be accrued after $17,500 in expenditures. It does have a $59 annual fee, but it is more flexible than most other rewards programs with no blackout dates or airline restrictions and its 2 miles per dollar accrual rate is at least as good as any other airline rewards program that I know of.

Chase APR isn't terrible at all...if excellent credit, its around 11.25% or so, but the cash back rewards are no hassle and the best in comparison
