Intro Bonus rewards with new App

[ Edited ]

When receiving a new card you apped with a special offer for points or rewards when spending x amount in first 3 months, how many of you take advantage of it? I recently apped and have a BCE and Citi Thank you, both wanting me to spend 1k to receive 100 back. As enticing as that sounds and i have no problem paying it back, how many of you have not taken advantage of these specials?

Another question is if you do not reap the rewards th first 3 months, do you think the CU looks at your account differently in the future for CLIs?

I absolutely do. Half the reason I usually decide on a card over another is the Bonus offered.

Chase Freedom wants me to spend $500 in the first 3 months to get $100.  Smiley Very Happy  That was done the first day (not really since I was so scared to charge up the card in one day for fear they would close me immediately - so I'm taking baby steps).  

 

 

(Since I just closed my mortgage early August, I decided to hold off making any more purchases for this very reason - ceiling fans, paint, water hoses, picture frames, decorations, etc.).

My Wallet:
Discover It $20.3k | Chase United $12k | AMEX BCE $8.2k | Costco Citi Visa $8k | Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k | Chase Freedom $5k | Citi Simplicity $5k | Paypal Extras Platinum $5k | Citi Visa Signature $3k | AMEX Schwab $3k | Care Credit $3k | Wells Fargo $1k

Is there any other reason to sign up for a credit card?
