Three Little [Red] Birds

The Bird!
The Bird!

Rise up this mornin’,
Smile with the risin’ sun,
Three little [red] birds
Each by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou: “)

They’re finally here: 3 little Red Birds waiting for me to MS 5k on each card. After a healthy amount of traveling last year my points’ deposits are running a little low. After applying for just about every cred card available, the chances of striking it big with quick bonuses is also low.

You have too many inquires on your credit file.” 

Luckily the Red Bird has come to save the day. With the birds in my pocket it’s time to come up with a MS strategy.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

1. Hilton Reserve: 10k for a free night for Tahiti.

2. Barclays Arrival retention offer: 1k spend for some nominal amount of travel credit.

3. The Bullpen: 

  • SPG
  • LifeMiles/Club Carlson (if US Bank works)
  • Giftcards on Ink at office supplies store

Should make for an exciting few months till a billion mile man no longer keeps it a secret.

Till then, sing on Bob…

“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right! “
