Credit Card Questions
 
Hello flyers,

So, I have been playing the credit card game for almost a year now, and I seem to have plateaued. My question is, once you have opened pretty much all of the cards whose bonuses will benefit you, do you just sit tight (close after 6-8 months) and wait a year or so to start another round? Most of these cards say that you are not eligible for a bonus if had the card in the past year. So maybe that is the answer to my question?

Also, I live in Shanghai, and, as a teacher, I do get a fair amount of time for vacation. I have diversified my miles plan which worries me in not being able to take advantage of all of them, but I am also interested in finding out which airline would be the best to chase status for international benefits. As far as my research has gone, I have not seen any really that will provide you with intl. upgrades even with the highest status.

Sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance for any advice.

Try to keep amex cards open (get the retention bonus) as you can't get a bonus twice with them anymore ( unless it's a business card) .

This is not true for all countries.
