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!!

I bank through US Bank and have my check card through cabelas. I get around $75-$100 a year in free stuff.

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
