Preferred Blows Reserve Out Of The Water, Easy Miles & Points Wins, Shawn Hits Up South Beach

In this episode of the Miles to Memories podcast we talk about Shawn’s recent visit to South Beach and Central Florida.  We also talk about why the Sapphire Preferred has been kicking the Sapphire Reserves butt lately. Lastly, we talk about the small miles and points wins we love, and hate.

  1. I’ve been on the fence as to renewing the Reserve come Dec. I think I will do another round of using up the TSA credit ( got the card in 2016) as I’m up for renewal on that then down shift to the Preferred. You make a compelling case that the annual fee is not worth it. Thanks for posting this podcast. I was in South Beach two weeks ago for Spring Break. Family was there early and out early so missed the madness.
