Points & Miles Assessment Service

 

The points and miles earned through credit cards can be extremely valuable. When used wisely, these can help you travel the world in ways most people can only dream of. However, we constantly hear stories about colossal misuse of points and miles. Additionally, some people have certain misconceptions about credit cards that severely restrict their points and miles earning capabilities.

 

When you request our Points & Miles Assessment ("PMA") service, we will gauge your travel interests and goals, analyze your spending patterns, identify what credit cards you currently have and evaluate how you had previously gone about redeeming the points and miles earned through your credit cards. Based on the information provided, we will prepare a detailed report indicating which of your credit cards you should continue using and how, which of your credit cards you should stop using and which credit cards you should apply to, along with a schedule indicating when you should apply to these new cards in order to minimize any potential negative impact on your credit and increase your chances of approval.
