The plight of card rewards programs

20 02 2010

I think I am going to give up the card rewards programs. It’s just not worth the hassle of trying to get 15-25 bucks after spending thousands of dollars on cards. One card for example, I could use for paying off my taxes and I would be rewarded with enuf points for a gift card. However with the penalty fees for using a card for those taxes would be a net loss of 15 bucks.

The other route is to not use the card for taxes, and wait a lil while to hit the next tier which would give me net gain of 15 bucks. Go figure.
