I’m sure most people have heard that the Lufthansa 50K offer is back. If you spend $5,000 in 3 months on the Lufthansa Miles and More credit card, you can earn 55,000 Lufthansa miles. The best use of Lufthansa miles in my opinion is flying business class domestically on United from LAX to New York. Another use is 85,000 and fuel surcharges for Lufthansa First Class one-way. I didn’t apply for this credit card a couple months ago, because I think that the Barclaycard Arrival is a more flexible and practical card. From my experience, Barclaycard is strict and sensitive to many credit inquiries and especially recent Barclaycard applications. I’ve heard to wait at least 6 months between each Barclaycard application. Of course everyone’s situation is different and you don’t have to adhere to my advice.
I’ve been noticing that the same AMEX offers from AMEX Twitter sync promotions are showing up in your AMEX account now. Well they have been for a while, but I’ve just been noticing it recently. The deal that caught my eye the most is the $25 off $75 at Staples. I’m definitely going to make a trip to Staples to buy a $200 Visa gift card by charging $75 on AMEX and the rest on Chase Ink Bold. I’ll use my wife’s AMEX card too, so that should be some nice free money. I’ve also sync’d my Chase Ink Bold to Plink, which will give me extra rewards. I’ll report back next week to see if everything worked out.
On another note: I will be a guest speaker for an entrepreneur class at Cal State Northridge tomorrow. It’s my first speaking engagement for this website, so wish me luck! I will be talking about points in miles in a beginners environment and talk about how I started Romsdeals, and a bit about turning a hobby into a business (I don’t like that word though).
