$250 after just $1000?! Lucky.

 

 

I got approved just a couple of weeks before they started the $100 for $1000 promotion.  Made me sad.  I have $30 in cash back as of now :/

Congrats to you.  That is an excellent deal.  I just got my BCE last Dec with only $100 cash back after spending $1000.

Thanks everyone! :smileyhappy:

 

So should I also get an EX FICO score when I receive the card in the mail?
