I was just talking to my parents tonight about getting a rewards card instead of using their basic, no-frills credit card. I know they have excellent credit, but no specific details. They currently have only one credit card, paid off mortgage, & just recently paid off car loan. The credit card dates back at least 15 years and they get auto loans approx every 5 yrs through CU with excellent rates. They PIF their cc every month, but typically only use if for gas, "shopping" or large purchases. I am sure they would use it for groceries & other things if they were earning rewards though. I know they would like to earn cash back, but they also fly from PA to CA once a year or so, so airline redemption options wouldn't be bad. What type of rewards card would be best? Any fantastic bonuses or preapproval sites to try? My mom mentioned that she usually just tosses the preapprovals but would maybe start looking at them now. Lol! She did say her coworkers have been telling her to get a Chase Freedom.
CSP for miles
