Re: Best way to make a "cash only" purchase with a credit card?

Honestly, it's more about being able to float the balance at 0% for a couple of months. The rewards are just a bonus.
So basically then, you want to spend $1000 of cash you don't have right now?
That's your choice, but I just want to point out that spending behavior like this is the reason many myFICO forumites are here rebuilding their credit. Be careful out there!
My Wallet: Amex BCP $10k, Amex Zync NPSL (> 10k), Chase CSP VS $9.2k, C1 Venture VS $5k, Amex SPG $4.5k, Barclaycard Apple V $2k, Walmart (Store) $1.2k, Chase Freedom V $600, BoA Cash Rewards V $500, Best Buy Rewards MC $500
Dream Wallet:Barclaycard Arrival WMC (replace C1 Venture), Amex Platinum (replace Zync eventually), Andrews FCU Global V (chip + PIN for travel). Otherwise, pretty happy with my portfolio now.
