My wife and I have each had our own mileage card (Me Venture One, Her Alaska) for years, but recently I've decided to step up my credit card game.
We in no way want to be churners, but while I am applying for new cash back cards, I wanted to get one card simply to use the bonus and then close or product change it later.
We don't travel right now and won't any time soon with two kids under two.
So my question, which card has the best signup bonus that can be used for a statement credit, or gift card, etc? I know the points aren't as valuable this way, but the way I see it free money is free money in a time where money is in short supply.
The Sapphire has the 50k + 5k deal going on right now, and I've read it can be used for a 1:1 statement credit. Is that true? Are there any better offers out there?
FYI the plan is to get the Discover it, Chase Freedom, Citi Cash Back, and maybe the Citi Costco Card.
Welcome to the forum and stepping up your game ...Lol
CSP value would be about $500
PRG 50k for 1k spend value $500
Venture 40k for 3k spend $400

Amex BCE BCP
Recently got pre-approval on simple Amex BCE to replace my TE Costco. Came with the $250 cash back after $1000 spend and 10% cell bill for rest of year. This is my 2nd statement tally.... Chewy is dog food who were already using anyway. With wifes card added, its an easy $50 off expensive prescription brand for our elderly dog.
Now if they only had some sort of daycare specific credit card, 5%...
3% and only for the next 7 weeks or so: http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/3-cash-back-rotating-categories/td-p/4586023
