Why should you do this?
With the Bluebird card you can pay all sorts of bills, such as your mortgage and student loans, that you can’t pay with a credit card. Since you are earning points for buying Vanilla Reload cards with a credit card and then using those Vanilla Reload cards to pay your bill via Bluebird, you are now earning miles and points for paying those bills!
By doing this on a $1,500 mortgage each month, you’d earn an extra 18,000 miles each year if you simply use a regular credit card.
But wait…it gets even better! You can earn A LOT MORE points for paying your mortgage or student loans.
Simply use your Chase Ink Bold or Chase Ink Plus to buy gift cards at Office Depot and earn 5x per $1, then use those gift cards to buy Vanilla Reloads, and get 5x for paying off your student loans or mortgage.
That’s 90,000 Chase points a year!
Or, you can buy Vanilla Reload cards with a credit card that earns more than 1x per $1 spent, such as using the Amex Hilton Hhonors, which earns 6x/$1 spent at drugstores and really rack in the points.
$1,500 a month with the Hilton card at a CVS or Walgreens would earn you 9,000 points a month or 108,000 Hilton points a year. Now that’s some serious pointage, friends!
