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!
