Re: Rewards: What have you gotten with yours?

I always get it back in the form of cash or statement credit or deposit back into my checking (same thing essentially). 

 

I am definitely interested in getting cards that redemm for travel rewards but don't know if the conversion rate is better than getting cash back, and using that money to find the best deals on travel sites.

Good question. So far, I have let them build up but I probably will use them towards statement credits.

Re: Rewards: What have you gotten with yours?

I just normally get cash back or checks.  For me I don't really like receiving goods for the points as they are usually simply cheaper to buy them online and earn more points along the way.  I don't really have any rewards cards for flight points and I usually just bank my points up anyway for my frequent flyer accounts so I can cash them out for travle later, however at some point I do plan on getting a flight rewards card so that I can add to that. 



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!
