jen3kids Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 The credit card rewards thread from last week (or maybe a couple weeks ago) got me thinking... DH and I have one credit card that we use for everything and we get United AirLine travel miles that have served us well. However, I just received an offer in the mail for a cc for REI (an outdoor store). With 2 boys in Boy Scouts and my dd and I in GS, we shop there quite a bit for gear, clothes and food. They are offering a $100 gift card to their store for signing up and then a $100 credit on a statement if we charge at least $3000 on the card by Dec. 31 (no problem there!) They also offer 5% back on purchases at their store and 1% back on all other shopping. That credit goes onto my yearly refund, so more money to spend at REI. I was thinking of getting it (and the gift card), using it until Christmas, getting the $100 credit and then being done with it. Is that ok, ethical, allowed? Does it damage my credit rating? Anything else to consider? Thanks, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
