How many credit cards does the Frequent Miler team have? – Ask Us Anything Ep 63

7

We had a lot of fun questions on our most recent Ask Us Anything, Live episode, including a question about how many credit cards each of the Frequent Miler team has. Maybe it’s a spoiler alert to say that one person has over 80 credit cards (between them and their spouse). Can you guess which Frequent Miler team member that is?

03:30 – Am I eligible for business credit cards?

08:18 – If you book two basic tickets without seat assignments for an adult and a toddler, will the airline automatically seat you together? If so, at what age will this no longer happen?

18:54 – ​Greg, now that you’re not chasing Delta status, how are you going to redirect the 250k spend you used to do for Delta Diamond? Any other airline / hotel status are you’re chasing?

22:28 – Tim, does it make sense for a new business traveler based in SFO / NYC to be Alaska loyal and credit all Alaska / American Airlines flights to Alaska, or American? I feel like Alaska miles aren’t as valuable and American Airlines shines.

27:00 – Anyone have suggestions for a use of Hilton FNC (free night certificate) for this month on the East Coast?

30:54 – Booking British Airways from USA to LHR and trying to minimize fees – Party of 4 including 1 lap infant, 1 person is One World Emerald. What’s the best program? Krisflyer? Nick mentioned 4-5 ways to reduce British Airways fees! Thanks!!

37:49 – I drive a company car with a company gas card that I cannot earn miles on. Besides the Shell/American Airlines partnership that earns 3x miles per gallon, what other options do I have to get some rewards on this?

39:52 – ​My p2 (player 2) and I both have been approved for 6 Chase Ink cards across two businesses each. How do I know when I should stop applying for Chase Ink cards? Is it safe to just keep applying until I get denied?

50:13 – ​Do y’all use Travel Freely to track your cards? Why/why not?

53:20 – I very rarely fly internationally and am having difficulty finding good value with American Express points; am I missing out on other good sweet spot redemption options outside of international business tickets?

54:05 – ​Is there a point were too much available open credit card limit may prevent you from being approved for new cards by an issuer (i.e. $200K, $300K, etc)?

56:18 – Has anyone had any luck using Hilton Aspire resort credit early? I have a trip planned for December 2024 and would love to double-dip the $200 aspire credit. So the $200 aspire Hilton resort credit is Jan to June and resets July to December. Would love to find a way to use $400 for my December Hilton trip
