Points, points, points= $

Have you ever wondered if you are getting the best options from the points offered by your business credit card?  

There are so many choices, it's a bit bewildering at times.  I've looked at NerdWallet, a bank & credit card information website,  when trying to figure out what's best, and a few do seem to stand out.  

I think it's all about your lifestyle, and what you enjoy on downtime.  If your a traveler, something with airlines miles or points that can be transferred to travel partners that some times get you 25% more is great. If you need or want cash in your pocket- I think the Capital One Spark at 2 points for every dollar spent is the good or Discover which will give you double back on your first year anniversary, cool! 

I'm luck enough to have a family member who travels and has done due diligence on all cards available, so I just ask- hey which card is best for me?   Or sometimes, they just pester me to make the move because I'm being lazy and not really thinking about the benefits.   

Presently I'm switching over to Chase Business Ink Preferred, because they are offering 80K points if you spend a certain amount in the first three months.  That is nothing to sneeeze at, because they will be worth 25% more when I transferred them to our Hyatt account.  I love that because there are beautiful Hyatt's all over the world.  Hawaii- here we come (in November). 

Are you being a creature of comfort, like I was?   When is the last time you really looked at what is being offered and how does that relate to what your carrying around in your wallet right now?  It might be time to take a jump over to something else.  You may not have a family member reminding you, like I do, that there are better options. Don't let that stop you from getting the best deal.
