I need airfare, hotel, and park tickets. I have available 3K on Chase Freedom, 4K on AMEX, 4K Ebates, and 4K on Paypal. Would any card(s) be more beneficial than the other?

I'll have to figure out how many points I'd get for each card. I know I'd get few from Paypal so they are out. But Ebates gives a percentage back in cash, then there are points and possible cash for AMEX or Chase. SO confusing trying to maximize rewards.

You can buy Disney gift cards @ lowes for 5x UR / $ with your freedom, this can be used to pay for the admission tickets and/or things inside the park.
| CSP (AU) $12,000 | Amex PRG (AU) | United $6,000 | OCCU $12,000 | Ink Bold | GM $3,200 | DCU $7500 | Luthansa $9000 | SPG $6,000 | Citi AA Executive $11,000 | Ink Plus $5,000 | EX 2/7 697 | EQ 10/27 721 | TU 12/15 719 |

Which points do you value more UR or MR?
Whichever one it is there's your answer
Chase or Amex
shouldnt they know there rewards??!!
I read one of your post recently and you didn't know about yours....Discover IIRC and then which card for yankee tickets today .....
So it's a learning experience for all
OP has to figure out the best way of redemption based on the amount of spending VS transferring to a FF program or the cash equivalent but cash is probably less
It's all about finding the best value in points be it UR or MR

I have to ask the CC gurus questions all the time. I'm just not savvy to the ways of the CC world, so I ask questions. If we stop asking questions, then we know it all and there's really no reason to be here.
So in the spirit of understanding, let's just try to get along. And in the spirit of I'm tired and overworked, I'll add the following tag line..... "or else". Thank you for shopping at myFICO and have a good evening.

I don't know my own rewards. I thought maybe someone would know right off what the best option was. Researching is my favorite part of the trip so I will have fun finding the best deals. Thank you.
