Re: Barclaycard Upromise: Does this look promising?
My sister has it. She thought it was nice that you can apply the rewards directly to your student loans. She got $25 with her first purchase, but the rewards take a long time to actually become available. It doesn't seem that great. She didnt get an intro apr, just 19 or 20% or something high, with a $1000 limit on recon.

It seems like a really good card if you already use upromise, but all of the bonus cash back is only at certain places. You get bonus CB at exxon mobil, you get it at CERTAIN restaurants, not all, and certain movie theaters and stuff. She did just get a bunch of 0%/12 month BT checks though.
