As some of you may know, I have started a no HP spree for two years...until all current HPs drop off. This is by design to ask for a CLI on the Marriott, with no HPs present. Anyway I still have the Walmart/Lowes/Amazon card that do provide CLIs automatically, or if not automatic through SP.
My Daily Purchase card is Marriott, but I want to keep the other cards active that I am not using, more specifically the three above, because they will be the ones I will be applying for CLIs from in the near future. Anyway I want to purchase a small item on each card, set up automatic payments, and then just recharge the said item each month to keep the card active.
For example just tonight, I bought a .59 cent item on amazon with free shipping. Granted it will not arrive to me for a month, but I don't really care...again the idea is to get as small of a dollar amount as possible, charge it on the card, and then pay it off when statement roles. Is this a good practice to follow? I would assume so.
What's the smallest amount you have charged using a credit card? I would like to go into Walmart, and buy a piece of fruit, like just one banana, and I would like to purchase that on my credit card, to count as my one monthly purchase. This one banana is likely to be something like 30 cents. Should I expect the cashier to look at me funny for doing this? I shouldn't care, but i'm curious if others have had similar experiences. I feel this is the best thing to do for my course of action. No HPs for two years, only apply for CLIs from Walmart/Amazon/Lowes/Marathon, every 3 months or however long, and just wait for all my HPs to fall off. It will be a long road, but in the end, it should be worth it.
