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!!

    • Peppers are back in the cold smoke. Breaking out the gas smoker later for jerky, not having a dehydrator think I'll put the peppers in the smoker and dry them out that way at around 130 or 140 degrees after the jerky is done. Not sure if it'll work but WTH. 
    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
