Rewards program noobie here and hoping to get my general strategy checked off. I understand financial advice can’t be given but I’m hoping any glaring errors I’m making can be highlighted.
I’m planning on going with two credit cards; an Amex that generates Ascent points with bonuses for supermarkets and fuel, and an Australian bank card for when Amex isn’t accepted. This will result in a points being generated in two separate rewards programs.
Is it an ok strategy to plan on combining the points from these two rewards programs when I want to redeem them for a flight? As an example, combining from Amex Member Rewards with ANZ Rewards to Velocity or Krisflyer. Is that wise? Or will I need to find an alternative strategy?
I appreciate any insight!
