    Day Trips to Disney or Split Stay?

    I don’t think you’re nuts. We did exactly what you described, but in hindsight, we wished we would have ended at Universal, as it would have been more relaxing. Our split stay really went fine until Storm Harper hit, and we just couldn’t afford to stay longer at the Polynesian. We also would...

    I love credit cards so much! v2.0 (see first page for add'l details)

    Will it hurt our credit if I close a Disney Rewards card we have had for 3 years? We have several cards that are older. We are paying a $49 annual fee and not earning enough to make it worth keeping. Also, we have recently opened 2 Chase Ink Preferred cards and are wondering if it will hurt...

    Day Trips to Disney or Split Stay?

    We found the same for the February break. For our other trips in January, we were able to reserve a Deluxe Disney resort at a reduced rate. We just can’t justify moving from a Deluxe Universal resort for a reasonable rate to a Disney resort for considerably more money.

    Day Trips to Disney or Split Stay?

    That’s what we were thinking. On our last stay, which was a split stay, we ended up having to tack on 2 hotel stays on the end at Universal due to Storm Harper. We started at US Portofino, then to the Polynesian, and went back to US (Sapphire Falls and RPR) when we were stranded due to the...

    Day Trips to Disney or Split Stay?

    We went to Disney and US last year and had a great time at both. We ended up upgrading our passes for US and are planning a return trip to RPR over February break. All along we have been planning to stay the entire week at RPR and just commute the couple days we want to go to Disney for the new...

    Favorite Family Vacation?

    Do it! You will love it. We went last April and stayed 4 nights at a 3 bedroom at Riverstone Resort and Spa and 2 nights at DreamMore, for when we went to Dollywood. DreamMore resort is comparable to any Disney hotel and it even offers a separate entrance to Dollywood for its guests. Dollywood...

    Thank you. This is reassuring. I actually logged in again tonight and “Earning on Next Statement” is 81,851!

    I love credit cards so much! v2.0 (see first page for add'l details)

    Okay, so right now, it shows I’ve spent a total of $5,330. There is a balance of $3,330 after a $2,000 payment. But, points earned since last anniversary date says 4593 and points earned on next statement says 1824. 1% per $1 earned is 3593 and shop through chase is 866. I did transfer points...

    I did have a couple of returns. but they were subtracted from the earnings, so I assumed would be reduced from total purchases and points.

    CIP MSR Question. My statement says purchases total $3,889, but the rewards for every dollar spent says 3,593. My total purchases for the next statement is $1,287, so MSR would be met with the first figure, but not the second. Which number is the one Chase uses? I don’t see any sort of notice...

    Is it possible to product change from a Chase Disney Rewards cats with the $49 fee to a Chase Freedom card that, I believe, does not have the fee ?

    Help me decide between RPR & PBH

    Thank you! Right now, the price is more at Portofino, so I think we will stick with RPR unless the price drops on PBR, which it did on our last trip. Our boys are 10.

    What ages are your boys and what did they like about PBR?

    I love credit cards so much! v2.0 (see first page for add'l details)

    I currently use a credit sesame just to make sure we are keeping our score and credit limit where we need to be to continue churning. I continue to get notices that Chase has add someone to my card as an authorized user. I am guessing it is myself and DH added to the other, but I haven’t called...

    Help me decide between RPR & PBH

    Thank you! I’m leaning towards Portofino. Our boys really liked both resorts and would be happy with either. I honestly think I would enjoy the extra space at PBR. That’s a good point about the extra space that club provides. We are used to traveling and staying in a two bedroom or suite, and...

    Help me decide between RPR & PBH

    Thank you! That’s what I’m struggling with. $150 per night more seems steep. We didn’t pay that out of pocket on food on our last trip.

    Help me decide between RPR & PBH

    We stayed at both PBH and RPR on our last trip in January on a combined Universal/Disney trip. We are returning to Universal in February, but we are not combining with a Disney resort this time, although do plan to go to Disney for one or two days. DH does not want to move hotels at all this...

    Thank you! Excited for this. Is the Freedom 3% all the time except when there are rotating categories that earn more or am I confusing it with another card?

    Can you PC an old Chase Slate card to a Chase Freedom card? DH has an old Chase Slate card that I don’t want to be closed by the lender and we would use if I could switch it to a Freedom.
