My Q4 Barclay promo on the 2% Priceline card is $1500 per month. 1k points for each month and 2k if I do all three months. Looks like I got a “higher spender” promo.
I am not a small monthly spender (but much less than DaveHanson). I did make the $1000 per month promo (Q3) for 5k points.
I am a bit challenged because I also have the 6% Synchrony/Marvel Sep-Dec promo that I am trying to hit. I don’t do MS (except for legitimate need gift cards), so I am having to sock drawer a lot of my other category cards for the time being.
Of course, property taxes and such are coming due soon.
Speaking on the 1.5% value points redeem rate on airline tickets. My only guess is that people were complaining about airline tickets that they were not getting 1.5% rate for and the only way for Barclaycard US to resolve was to add the airline MCCs to the 1.5% category.
I used to have this way back when I was getting 3x for retail air purchases with a Priceline AF card. I did drop that card to focus on this 5x/2x card. At one point, I had three different Priceline cards. Ah, the good old days.
