I applied for a new credit card today, Amex Sky Blue. After charging $500 in the first three months, I will get 30,000 bonus points. I can exchange those points for $400 in travel. It needs to be airfare, hotels, car rental, or cruises. I plan to go to Minneapolis with my family for a long weekend this fall. I thought that be perfect for our hotel.
I'm not worried about my credit score taking a hit because its over 800. If I can't use my credit score to score deals like this, then what good is it?
Have you taken out a new card specifically for the perks?
