I don't know if anyone saw but there's an entry on the blog about the idea of credit card rewards going to the government.
Apparently a candidate for the governor of Vermont wants to create a state credit card that citizens could get, which would have the rewards go to the government instead. It would be an optional card so you wouldn't have to get it if you don't want. But if you wanted to you could get it and help the state out.
Personally I feel like it's another tax. I would rather have my cashback than give it to the government. But then again if someone wants to give their rewards to help the state out that would be fine with me too.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
