Listen Up: Dan Frommer on How to Score All the Points

Listen Up BY kiara mills 03/26/2018


As we head into ice-cream season, we are sincerely hoping that Häagen-Dazs gets back to Claire ASAP about stocking up on their vanilla bean (emphasis on the bean) flavor. And, speaking of getting it together, Claire and Erica talk with Dan Frommer, creator of the Points Party newsletter, about which credit cards truly give you a bang for your buck.

P.S. Don’t give up on dry shampoo just yet: La Tierra Sagrada’s smells great, absorbs fast, and is 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS.


Special and amazing guest Dan Frommer on gettin’ the most out of your credit card in any situation...


  • Subscribe to Points Party!
  • Dan (and Bloomberg) can’t recommend the Chase Sapphire Reserve card enough if you’re a frequent traveler who eats out a lot and can stomach the annual fee.
  • If cash rewards are more your speed: Uber has a credit card, and there’s an Amazon Prime one, too.
  • If you’ve got a favorite airline, stock up on miles with a card. Dan’s got an American Airlines one, and C+E are all about Delta.
  • Chase Freedom does it up with bonus categories, which can serve you especially well if you learn to play ‘em like Dan does.
  • Want some more Dan? He’s also the editor of Recode!
