Chase Saved Account Manager: Track Where your Credit Cards are Stored Online & in Mobile Wallets

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  I just got an email from Chase and I scrolled all the way to the bottom and saw a section called “Track where your card is stored.”  I decided to look into this feature, which is called the Chase Saved Account Manager.  It is actually pretty cool and helpful to see where your credit cards are stored online or in mobile wallets (like ApplePay and Google Pay).  This could be a useful feature if your old credit card expires and you need to update the credit card information or if your credit card is lost or stolen – you will know exactly which websites and apps have your credit card number stored (from previous online or in-app purchases).  Without further ado, let’s dive into the Chase Saved Account Manager feature.

Buy FTU Online Annual Membership for $49 & Get Free Access to FTU Virtual Seminar (February 20)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I just received an email from Frequent Traveler University (FTU) that the $49 FTU Online Annual Membership price has been extended through January 31.  Beginning February 1, the price will rise to $129.  If you want to save $80 on an annual membership, you only have a few days left to act.

With your annual membership, you will receive free access to the next FTU Virtual Seminar on February 20 (or buy a single ticket for $25).  Here is the tentative schedule and lineup of speakers (seminars start Saturday at 11am ET / 8am PT). I really enjoyed attending the first FTU Virtual Seminar back on December 12 and I’m sure the next seminar will be just as entertaining and educational.

Listen to Grant & Nick (from Frequent Miler) on the Risk of Ruin Podcast

Good morning everyone, I hope you had an enjoyable MLK Jr. Weekend.  I am a big fan of miles & points podcasts and I recently had the pleasure to join Nick from Frequent Miler on the latest episode of the Risk of Ruin Podcast (hosted by John Reeder).  John is a great story teller and expertly wove our experiences and stories together into a great podcast.  I highly recommend listening to this podcast on your favorite podcasting platform:

Ask Me (Almost) Anything Friday

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  I am looking forward to my MLK Jr. 3 day weekend and hope you are too.  Travel with Grant has always been about writing blog posts that interest me and I write blog posts that I would want to read (hopefully readers want to read those posts too).  My inspiration to write comes from first hand experiences with travel and rewards credit cards, in addition to reading other miles & points blogs and listening to miles & points podcasts.  I don’t have any blog posts at the forefront of my mind right now, so I am looking to my readers for some inspiration.  What are you interested in right now?  Do you have any questions about traveling, miles and points, or credit card rewards?

If you do, please leave a comment below and I will do my best to answer them all.  I should be able to answer some of them in the comments section, but others may lead to full on blog posts of their own.  My only request is that you do not ask me any complicated award booking questions like, “I want to get 25 people to Australia for Christmas in first class.”  Trust me, I’m not sitting on the greatest award booking secrets ever known, so my short answer will be to reach out to an award booking service and pray that they can help you out.  That is my one and only request, but I welcome all other questions.

Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, and enjoy your long weekend!

Flying to the United States? You’ll Need Proof of a COVID Test (Starting January 26)

Buenos días everyone!

Starting January 26, all passengers traveling to the United States will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 viral test (PCR or antigen) dated within 3 days prior to departure, unless they have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past three months (in which case they will need to provide a copy of their positive test dated within three months of departure and a letter from a medical professional saying they are cleared to travel).

This policy applies to all passengers traveling on flights to the US, regardless of citizenship or residency, including passengers connecting onward to a third country. It does not change any existing travel restrictions, including the presidential proclamations that deny entry to most travelers who have been in Brazil, China, Iran, Ireland, the United Kingdom, or the European Schengen Area within the past 14 days.
