Keep, Cancel or Convert? US Bank Radisson Rewards Business Credit Card ($60 Annual Fee)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  As part of my “Keep, Cancel or Convert?” series, I like to evaluate and reevaluate credit cards to make sure they still deserve a spot in my wallet (or credit card drawer). For today’s post, I will review my US Bank Radisson Rewards Business Credit Card (no longer available to new cardholders) which just charged me the $60 annual fee.  The only reason I keep this credit card year after year is the 40,000 anniversary Radisson Rewards Points.  I am basically buying 40,000 Radisson Rewards Points for $60, which is 0.15 cents per point (CPP).  I probably value Radisson Rewards Points at 0.4-0.5 CPP, so I have no problem paying the annual fee every year.

Even though I planned on keeping this credit card, I called US Bank to ask if there were any retention offers available.  After reviewing my account, the rep first said she could cut my interest rate in half.  I politely declined that offer and said last year I was offered Radisson Rewards Points to keep the credit card open – was that offer still available?  The rep said yes, but it was only for 2,500 Radisson Rewards Points.  I told her that was better than nothing and accepted the offer.  The rep said I should see the 2,500 Radisson Rewards Points on my next statement.

Keep, Cancel or Convert? Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card ($89 Annual Fee)

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  Last week, I was checking my Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card (currently offering a sign up bonus of 125,000 IHG Rewards Points after spending $3,000 in 3 months) statement and saw that the $89 annual fee posted to my account.  As part of my “Keep, Cancel or Convert?” series, I like to evaluate and reevaluate credit cards to make sure they still deserve a spot in my wallet (or credit card drawer).  There are 3 main reasons to keep this credit card: 1 free night certificate good for any IHG property up to 40,000 IHG Rewards Points, 4th night free when you pay for your entire stay with IHG Rewards Points, and 10x IHG Rewards Points when paying for IHG hotels (if you are a new credit card holder, you will get 25x at IHG Hotels for the first 12 months).

This card is a keeper for me, but I decided to call Chase and see if they had any retention offers available.  I mentioned to the Chase rep that I also have the Chase IHG Rewards Select Credit Card and was hoping they would waive the annual fee on this credit card.  The rep looked at my account and said there were no retention offers available.  At that time, I thanked her for looking and told her I would keep the credit card open.

How I did on that British Airways / Match.com Deal from 2017

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  A few years ago, British Airways was offer 150x Avios at Match.com.  After fighting with British Airways and Match.com for a few months to get my 82,286 British Airways Avios, I ended up getting a full refund from Match.com (I would have much preferred the British Airways Avios over the full refund).  Thankfully, I met a wonderful girl on Match.com named Laura…

Rumor: Capital One to Launch Premium Credit Card (Q2 2020 Launch)

I have it on good authority that Capital One is going to launch a premium credit card to compete with the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Platinum Card from American Express, and other premium cards.  My source has let me know the following details about this card:

  • 10X points per dollar on hotels booked through the Capital One portal
  • 5X points per dollar on airfare booked through the Capital One portal
  • 4X points per dollar at restaurants
  • 1X points per dollar on all other purchases
  • Additional point bonuses at certain spend thresholds
  • $300 travel credit
  • $495 annual fee

I’ve been told that this card is slated for a Q2 2020 launch, so it may be awhile before we have confirmation about this card offering and any of the specific details.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted on any developments!

Turkish Airlines Transfer Time from Citi Thank You Points (17 Hours 21 Minutes with AwardWallet Balance Watch)

Updated 8:30am PT on 8/12/19: I did another transfer, so I added the second data points to the bottom of this post.


Good afternoon everyone.  2 days ago, I read Frequent Miler’s post Forget email, book Turkish awards over the phone (7.5K each way) and decided to create a Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles account (the Turkish Airlines frequent flyer program).  I wanted to test the transfer time and make sure everything was working properly, so I transferred 1,000 Citi Thank You Points to my new Turkish Airlines account on 7/30/19 at 1:46pm.  How long would it take for the miles to post to my Turkish Airlines account?
