Upromise bonus

I received an email yesterday from Upromise, trying to get me to apply for their credit card. There was an interesting wrinkle this time, they offered a $50 first use bonus. better than the usual $25 bonus.

 

Today I received another email from Upromise for the same thing, only THIS time they are offering a $75 first use bonus. 

 

I suppose its about time to take them up on their offer. Unless they up the offer tomorrow...

Don't do it!  $75 isn't enough for 1 HP and hit to AAoA.  $200 minimum :smileyhappy:

I would lose 1 month of AAoA. I would drop from 11 to 10 months :smileywink:

 

AAoA is overrated.

same here and wow OP, getting offered for what would be your 3rd barclays card right? That is very unusual for a bank like Barclays, not too many here have 3 or more cards.



biggest limits: BofA Privilege (33K)/ BofA Cash Rewards (27k)/ Citi AA WEMC (26k)/ Penfed Rewards (22.5k)/ Chase United Explorer (22k)
Fico 08 scores (6/21/14) EX: 758 TU: 759 EQ: 755 (high Utilization for me at the moment @10% so gardening mode).

Re: Upromise bonus

Well, I did sign up for a Upromise account 3 years ago. Apparenty I just passed the 3 year mark recently. I still have welcome emails in their system, from 2/20/2011.

 

I've managed to accumulate $0.00 in rewards so far :smileywink:

 

Their online shopping mall seems rather large. Might be useful. Might not.

Re: Upromise bonus

Have to agree, at least early on. Mine is practically nonexistent and i'm about to wrap up another perfect spree on this end.
If AAoA was such a negative it doesn't reflect on my current scores all CRA's avg. 700's
