Citibank sent my daughter a credit card offer to received 50,000 American Airlines miles after spending $750. Uh, she still a bit young to sign up. But I did. That is enough for 2 roundtrip domestic flights. And since we love to travel - and are a bit on the frugal side - this is a great deal for me. Please note that I am not advocating everyone sign up for credit card offers as YMMV. We do not carry a balance and will probably only keep the card for a short period of time because after a year, there is an annual fee of $75. I signed up for the business card for our condo rental - since we are required to have a business license, pay local lodging taxes, etc. So, I will probably try to replace the sofa and loveseat soon - since Target cancelled my order. I am hoping my husband can get one too - and we can each order one and fulfuill our spending for things we would have purchased anyway - and get a nice mileage bonus. I am not affiliated with Citibank - as a matter of fact, I believe I wrote a not a very nice post about Citi-mortgage and pulled our HELOC away from them about 2 years ago. At lunch today, I shopped at Publix for a few needed items. But I found another "good deal". Laughing Cow spreads were 3/$6. Right on the display are $1/1 coupons. So, that makes them $1 per container - nice small snack - plenty of flavors too.
