the best way to utilize frequent flyer programs for corporate travel

Big Company gives me an American Express card.
I've joined the Membership Rewards program. I spend $7,000 - $10,000 per month on travel and related expenses. I'm hoping I can pick some of that up in terms of travel benefits.

I am required to use my corporate card for travel so no alternatives there.

Does it make sense to use the $75 regular program or the $125 unlimited program? Any recommendations? I think the $75 regular program moves miles to any pre-existing program while the more expensive one is similar to the BofA programs where you can buy tickets directly with miles. I've gone with the cheaper program. Any thoughts or recommendations. Am concerned that they won't transfer to United.

Please advise.

Hi Making Our Way,
I really enjoy your blog, thanks for the insight! I have a kind of random question, based on your Fidelity post awhile back. Which would you suggest are the best Fidelity funds to invest in longterm? My husband's work offers Fidelity 401K plans, and this year he's investing in the Fidelity Freedom 2040 (largely because neither of us knew much about investing and thought it would be worry free - we like a high stock to bond ratio right now) but we'd really be open to suggestions.

Hey, I'm Lacey. I was wondering if you might want to do a link trade with my Wedding Finance blog? My fiance and I are documenting our attempt at fundraising all of our wedding money.

Email me at and we can set up links. Thanks!
