    I have World Points with Bank of America and it sucks.

    I refuse to do business with Capital One because of their commercials.

    TD bank has a good rewards system. 25K points can be redeemed for a $25 credit/payment. First 6 months is 5X points on most things. I have $20 earned in one month so far.

    I also have a Payal CC and it's 6000 points to get $50.

    You don't go to jail for not paying your bills unless it's your taxes.

    Does anyone have a Costco Executive membership? I do, and I have no idea why I'm paying $100 a year for that. Except they do send a check once a year, so I figure that offsets the cost somewhat. But are there benefits to this? I'm not reading the pamphlet, so just put it in a nutshell for me. If you know. Thank you. :coffee:

    They're scumbags with the WORST customer service. I got so mad at them, I refused to use the card AND I refused to cancel it.

    Muthafuckas CLOSED the account due to inactivity. :pissed:

    everything that you already pay for .... groceries, gas, utilities, etc.... you could be paying the exact same amounts with your credit card, not a penny difference as far as your balance is concerned... except that at the end of the year you've built up a big bank of points which you can use for cash back, hotels, gift cards, etc.

    you're giving away free money and the only change is you pay a tiny bit of extra attention to make sure your credit card bill is paid off before your interest kicks in

    Barnes and Noble has a Mastercard that gives you 25.00 gift cards to their stores. No annual fee.
