I’ve noticed a trend among financial bloggers recently.
People have started playing around with high-reward credit cards for fun and profit.
Signing up for them in bulk, scooping the signing bonuses, strategically using the good ones, and cancelling the duds.
Fuck date for free with no credit card nesasary
In 2006, I switched to a Travelocity American Express that doubles the reward, giving the equivalent of 2% back on most purchases, and 10% back on travel.
The only hitch is that the rebate can only be applied to travel purchases booked through Travelocity (air, hotel, car rental).
This wouldn’t work for everyone, but it works for us since we travel at least once or twice each year.
Sometime around 2006, when interest rates were high and yet credit was still loose, Chase started sending me checks for my business card that could be used to pay any bill – and they were offering a 0% annual percentage rate.
After reading the fine print, I saw that the conditions were favorable.
