I’m trying to decide how to handle all the good credit card offers:

  1. Write a post about all the offers I hear about – this means more emails for you and possibly more duplicate content with other bloggers who may have ‘beaten me to the punch’. I often will write about a card if I can be one of the first to tell you about it, or if I can show you how to get more value out of the card (either on the earning or burning side). Sometimes I think that if I write about a card, I’ll just be a “Me Too Millie” by saying what has already been said.
  2. Write a post once a week that highlights any new card offers or card improvements for the week. I’d mostly just link to whoever I think had the best write up on the card (especially if I think there’s not much I can add to the discussion).

As an example, I didn’t write about the 75,000 AMEX business offer this week because it was only for one day, and you would have got two emails that day. I haven’t yet written about the 70,000 Marriott offer, and I’ve yet to properly address the American Airlines 50,000 offer.

Do you want more content more frequently? Or do you want me to filter the content so you only get 3-4 emails per week?

    I would prefer to have as much information as possible as soon as possible. I don’t think it’s possible to have too much info. Also, I don’t have time to read ALL the other blogs.

    Can you give me an idea of the value of a Membership Rewards point compared to an SPG point? I’m trying to figure out whether transferring MR points to SPG points at a 750 MR to 333 SPG ratio is a good idea. I need hotel points but don’t want to use my MR points foolishly.

      Karen,
      My schedule didn’t allow me to do a full post on this. I would say that 750 MR is much more valuable than 333 SPG. I’d decide where you are trying to go to see if there was a better transfer option for hotels.
      Again, I wouldn’t transfer 750 MR points for 333 SPG unless there was a specific trip you were planning.
