Does anyone else ever get special sign up offers in the mail that are better than the default rate.
I just got an offer for a TD Bank cash Visa card. It gives 2% cash back on dining and 1% back on everything else which ordinarily wouldn't be considered since I have better cards. But they also advertise that they are willing to give me a whopping $200 cash back for spending just $500 in 3 months. On the website it only shows $100 for spending the $500. I'll probably be mean and earn the bonus and then not use the card anymore, but only because 1% base cash back isn't an incentive to use it after that.
With the American Express Blue Cash Everyday I also received a "special offer" where I got a $150 bonus for spending $500 instead of the usual $100 for $1,000.
