    I would have apped for it if that was the case. Credit karma says I have a good chance of being approved for that card.

    Why do you want the TYP and SPG? I'm asking just out of curiosuity since we think alike about rewards.

    I only want TYP if I get this promo... without it it's pretty worthless to me.

    With the gift card, VR, and MP strategy, I only have about 5 more months left before I am capped out on rewards. That's where the SPG will come in, which in my opinion is better than the 2% cards. Any spending that I can't get 5% on will go on it.

    Not a determining factor, but the backdating will be great with SPG too(if that applies to SPG). My AAoA needs some help!

    It's a promo they were running, which seems to no longer be available

    No I havent yet. I will be going out next week to try and find them. Even with just buying gift cards I will be capped out in about 6 or 7 months. Theoretically my BCP isn't capped, but I havent called to confirm it. But that doesnt even matter because all of my local grocery stores have stopped selling $500 gift cards.

    I wonder why they started selling 200 capped major gift cards at $6.95 I seen alot of 500 Visa gift cards here, but I want the MC gift card to pay bills online.
