+1

 

Activity = using the card during the month

 

Carrying balance = giving them money in the form of interest that you probably need more than they

 

The only cards for which I've seen convincing evidence that they sorta reward carrying balances are the bottom-feeder cards. Sure, the others would like to get some free money from you, but it's not necessary. I never carry a balance unless it's on a 0% BT or some other deal that makes sense at the time. (And even then, the BT fee works out to be the equivalent of interest, so that has to be weighed as well.)

 

I have other things to do with my money! :smileywink:

Congrats, just beware of their hefty BT fees, imo there are probably better options for bt than Discover.

I must have misunderstood, here I thought you were indicating an interest in their BT.
