I also went for the Visa Hilton card to get 40,000 points with a minimum spend of $1,000 within the first 4 months.
I'll work on meeting the spend requirements (paying off each card on time each month of course!) for these two cards, plus the Chase Sapphire for airfare from yesterday. Then once I have the bonus points, redeem for my Portland trip, then reassess which cards will be next!
I'm tracking all this through Award Wallet, and also a quick spreadsheet too just to be sure I'm not forgetting any details.
It's just the start, but already a bit addictive!
