I'm not seeing anything about a SUB for a checking account!

Doctor of Credit has info on the $150 SUB for opening a checking account (only for new members).

You can use a rewards credit card to add UP TO $1000.

I can't speak for why, but they don't broadcast the rotating categories. Right now (Oct - Dec) we are getting 10% at Amazon, 6% Walmart and Target, and Supermarkets. The card also has a $200 SUB. It's best kept secret out there, IMO. 

Actually, Supermarkets (and every Walmart I've tried in store because they code as Supermarket for some reason) get 2% on this card.  So they are actually getting 7% this quarter!

 

There is also that addtional $200 SUB after hitting $20,000 spend in the first year.  Sadly, I hit that mark too! Smiley Very Happy

The card will be one of my primary cards and the SUB looks also good (checking/CC combo~350$). I did lots of shopping at Amazon in this quarter and if I had this card, I could get 10%.

 

I also found this product recently. I guess, they should hire much better marketing departments to present their products Smiley Happy

Cash Back redemption starts at 2,500 Points. For example 2,500 Points = $ 25 Cash Back.

Arghh, I hate the word "points".  

 

Minimum redemption amounts are rarely a problem for me - until I am, say, sock drawer'ing a card and moving on to another.  For instance, when I got my 3% AOD, I was ready to stop using my 3% AARP (for gas).  Luckily I had just over $25 in CB.  If I had any amount under $25, I would feel compelled to keep using it until I hit $25.

I want this card so bad... I joined the credit union already, and I'm parking some money in the 2% APY savings account, because it's better then my.5% apy account. Still too new to credit to be brave enough to try and apply for the card though. I only have 9 months of credit history. Figure I should wait until i have at least a year.

Re: Affinity FCU 1st quarter Hi5 bonus cats released

I opened a checking account. Is it sufficient to be able to get Fico score and pre-approved CC offers (right now, it does not show Fico/pre-approved offers, possibly because the account is new)? Or do I need to directly apply for this CC, without pre-approval step?
