Holiday shopping with rewards

Postby Ratfacedudeguy » Tue Nov 20, 2012 12:49 am

So I just finished up Christmas shopping for my fiancé's parents on Amazon. Picked up a book, a DVD, some tennis gear, and a tv dinner table set, used my $50 signup bonus from the Chase Amazon card and my Discover cashback, and only ended up charging $16.19. Anybody else start their shopping yet?
