If the crdit card comapnay can give something away, one is paying for it. Nothing is free from these CC companies.

I have a USBank account and have the Check Card with miles as well as a CC with the miles. It's $25 a year fee to use the cards. But I've also earned a ton of miles using it. I just charge everything or use my check card and then pay it off every month. I've got close to a hundred thousand miles using it. Paid for our trip to Florida a couple of years ago when we went to pick up our baby girl. They aren't "giving" it away, it's a deal they have worked out with the airline. Every $2 you spend you get 1 mile.

I tell you guys. I have a Bass Pro Shop Visa that I charge everything on, gas, meals, etc. I have accumulated $275 worth of credit for Bass Pro merchandise and have not paid a dime because I pay my balance in full each month. Pretty sweet deal and the card looks great. Check into it. I am looking into the Cabela's Visa as well.

I've got an american express card I use for my business with 5% cash back.

I kmow of alot of guys that run every purchase through these cards, and just pay them off at the billing cycle.

There's a HSOforum..... I can't remember the name right now, something like creditcards.com or .... well anyways, there's 50+ cards there, and you can compare them all, and see if you want cash back, miles, gas cards, 0% interest for balance transfers, whatever you're looking for, and you can choose which one suits you, rather than try to look through all the mailings.

I have this card also, 7.99% interest, and cash back rewards. Have used over $500 in rewards for various merchandise including my Aqua Vu camera.

The Citi Dividends card gives you 1% back on all purchases and 2% on gas and Groceries (up to $300 per year) that is the best deal I have found and use it for every purchase I make, from fast food to vehicles.

This is totally free money - no catch. Of course if you mis-use a credit card (i.e. spend money you don't have), you'll pay big time in intrest fees.

I would assume the Bass Pro Shops card is 2 or 3% and if you spend money there anyway that's an even better deal.

I've had the bass pro for years now and I believe it is 1% on everything and 2% on orders from them and 4% on their brand merchandise. We usually have a couple hundred bucks every year that I can blow on outdoor stuff, Rememeber they also have the Red Head brand for your hunting gear. I've always paid off my balace. There's no annual fee with theirs either. But if your card charges you an annual fee, you are a sucker if you pay it. Just tell them you'll take your business elsewhere and they'll waive it, or at least they used to.

Yup,

Again, I am a credit card companies worst nightmare, paying off the balance in full each month. I even do it on line so I save the cost of a stamp!

I agree,it works if you pay it off every month. I got a scheels card, I put gas, groceries, ect. on it and make sure I pay it off each month. I got $250 ready to be spent at scheels now!

As long as one pays off the balance in full each month, then they are a great deal.

Sorry off the subject slightly....

You guys talking about the BPS or cabelas cards, another option is the Gander Mastercard. Earn 5% rewards (best I know of) on ALL product purchased at Gander and 1% everywhere else, no annual fee. Save 10% off your first purchase with the card and get special coupons just for card members. Also, there probably is a GM within 30 mins of you at any point in the metro.

Yea were just gonna have to bail out airlines again just because they wont charge what they should. Or they will down size and thousands of people will lose work. Just so you can get cheaper and quicker transportation.

The way the airlines are going right now, I don't know if I'd be trying to bank too many miles. Who knows if you'll actually get to use them...

It seams everytime they get into financial trouble they "adjust" their frequent flier program. I had a NWA Worldperks account (not a C.C., just an account that I could accumulate miles with when I traveled) and I burned those miles up recently on a personal flight as I have the feeling they will "downgrade" the benefits again soon.

I will have to do some looking into the cash back cards. Them seem to be a great deal. I have also been looking into the BPS or cabelas cards aswell. Good information guys

I also just heard on the news that one one airline (not sure if it is Delta or...) that they are charging $50 to redeem the fequent flyer miles now. kind of takes away some of the incentive now....?

Cabelas card is the way to go- but as with any credit card pay your bill of in full at the end of the month. I have been putting all my bills, plus gas, etc etc on my cabelas card, i think i have close to 100$ worth of free stuff at cabelas coming!

i dont remember who said but they were right, the free stuff isnt always free. Somewhat right, SOMEONE is paying for my free stuff at cabelas, but it isnt me!!

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
