that’s pretty cool! nice to note! I always redeem mine for cash and make sure I have enough in the bank. I have an amazon credit card and i use it to take money off my purhases through them. pondering the united miles card I have(its a 95 a year charge but its free for the first year……) I had a really good chase card but it stoped and it got converted to a freedom and then point value is MUCH lower. I still think rewards are sort of a scam, you have to SPEND to get the points and it takes kind of a while….

We have the Amazon one also. We put our gas on it and pay it off every month. I use the points to buy books. We gotta have gas and we don’t have a problem with over spending when it comes to gas (Lol) so it’s a win win for us.

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!
