Upgraded JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card $300 Annual Travel Credit for 2019 Still Available

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and any other holiday in between that I missed.  A few weeks ago, I wrote Why Did I Upgrade my Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Visa Signature to JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite?  In that post, I went through all the card benefits and explained why this card was interesting to me.  One of the key features of this card is the $300 annual travel credit.  Accord to the terms and condition, the $300 Annual Travel Credit can be used for the following purchases, “airline lounge day pass, or towards a yearly lounge membership of your choice; airline seat upgrades; airline baggage fees; in-flight Internet/entertainment; in-flight meals.”

Since I still had a few weeks left in the year, I called JPMorgan Chase and asked if the $300 annual travel credit was available to me since I recently upgraded from the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card.  The rep said yes and listed the same qualifying purchases as above.  I started thinking about my upcoming trips to see if I could pay for airline seat upgrades on any of my flights…

How to Redeem City National Bank CNB Visa Infinite Points for Cash Back, Gift Cards & Merchandise

Good morning everyone.  After yesterday’s massive devaluation of the City National Bank CNB Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card (Doctor of Credit and Frequent Miler), I started planning to close this credit card since my $400 annual fee is scheduled to be billed later this month.  But first, I had a few orphaned CNB Points that I wanted to redeem.  If you only have a few thousand CNB Points, there are not many good redemption offers, but I will show you what I saw and what I learned during this process.  To get started, sign into your CNB Rewards account or create an account.

Unboxing my CNB City National Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Letter & Brochure

Good morning everyone.  2 weeks ago, I visited my local City National Bank (CNB) branch and applied for the City National Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card.  The credit card currently offers 75,000 City National Rewards Points after spending $5,000 in 3 months, plus $250 airline credit per cardmember, unlimited Priority Pass access, the Visa Infinite $100 companion travel discount, and much more.  Please check out Frequent Miler’s post and Doctor of Credit’s post to learn more about this credit card.

After waiting more than a week without hearing if I was approved or denied, I called CNB to check the status of my application.  I was told that I was approved for the credit card on November 2 and the credit card would arrive soon.  2 days later, I received the credit card via FedEx on November 6.  In this post, I will go through the unboxing process, show you my welcome letter, show you the brochure, and where to sign up for online access and to start earning City Nation Rewards Points.  But first, here is the card art from the front and back of the City National Crystal Visa Infinite Credit Card.  The credit card information is on the back, but when I blacked it out, you cannot see where it used to be.

Use Visa Infinite Credit Card to get $100 off Roundtrip Domestic Flights (Discount Air Benefit)

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  In this post, I will show you how to use your JPMorgan Chase Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite Credit Card to get $100 off round trip domestic flights.  Unfortunately, if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card, you are not eligible for this benefit.

It all started when I was looking for flights down to Orange County for Super Bowl weekend (Sunday, February 5, 2017).  United Airlines is/was having a fare sale for SFO-SNA and I found a great round trip flight for $127.  My brother (who now lives in the Bay Area – Larkspur to be specific) also wanted to fly down to Orange County that weekend, so I was excited to use the new Visa Infinite Discount Air Benefit.
