Needing to get a few extra dollars for the min spend on the CSP. And trying to hide the charges from the wife so she doesn't beat me for eating fast food
Well, the second part I won't opine on...but giving up an opportunity to use Freedom well has got to be a little painful. Still, you can't miss the big CSP bonus.
I earned my CSP bonus between January and March. I had groceries on Freedom, gas on Discover, and used CSP for everything else. I was pretty bummed out about being denied the oversubscribed Amex NYC Restaurant "Week" offer ($5 off each $30-ish meal at select restaurants over the course of a few weeks) but it put me closer to the $4k spend.
