I tried to ask this before but somehow the heading and question got messed up and I couldn't even come close to getting the answer wanted.
The folks over at Wells Fargo talked me into applying for one of their credit cards and when I asked the question before I was wanting to know if I should bother to apply for it or not, I really don't care what people think of them as a bank. I didn't get the answer I wanted and didn't have time to come back and re-ask the question, so I applied for the card. What they sent me was a plain ol' Platinum card, no rewards.
As bad as people think Capital One is, they have a cash rewards card with 1% back and a 50% annual bonus which is way better than the 0% I'm getting from Wells Fargo. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 1% back better than 0% back?
So for those of you who know, can I expect it to turn into something better or did I just get another sock drawer card? Just how do you allocate non-rewards cards for use when you have a couple rewards cards? I just can't decide if it's really of any use at all. Should I activate it? Use it? Sock drawer it? Send it back?
