I know you said no giftcards, but why not buy giftcards for known expenses?

Gas
Groceries
Any upcoming service expenses: car/home repairs, appliance replacement, tires
And there is always Amazon, which is as close to cash as you can get.

just dont feel like having $2000-$3000 worth of amazon tied up for year or 2...no major repairs.in the foreseeable future.i do have some smaller expenses $100-$300 tops but not enough for 3k...

thanks though

I'm just going to go ahead and say it.. This is one of the worst threads ever.

You can't seriously tell me that getting a credit card you have no use for and no way to spend the promo amount without outside help? If you say you could already, then it's just trolling.

This forum has really got to start clamping down on people trying to boost their post count or whatever their goal is..

Rant and rail on me if you'd like, but I'm right....

Iagree

If the OP only has $300 expenses per month, why would he sign up for a CC that requires $3k spending in 3 months (let alone try to do it in 1 month) to get the bonus? And then scoff at suggestions to help him reach that $3k spending goal? Troll is right...

So you don't want to deal with GCs and you don't want to pay your bills in advance. Buy items for resale then. Surely you had a plan in place before you applied for this card ...?

Don't get the damn card if you don't know how to meet the min spend. Effin rookies. You posted here, so you probably know how the internet works. Search "ways to hit minimum spend on new cc" you're welcome

There are forums that specialize in MS - flyertalk.com, etc. Go there and do some reading, don't expect all the answers to just come to you.

OP already asked same question in the amex thread. Im trying to figure out why someone would open a credit card and not have a way to meet the minimum spending requirements?

I thank you op...you and many like you are the very reason why these deals exists. You will rack up unnecessary charges helping to boost the economy then miss a payment on your amex card. Amex will profit and the rest of us who know how this game works will profit with the rewards.
