[*]They often do periodic specials. Most recently, if you used the card three times within a three week period, you got a $10 statement credit- not bad since I just made three one dollar purchases.
I am thinking the statement credits are why they have such outrageous finance charges. I have the smart connect credit line and they offer these to me every other month or so.
Actually, I do like the regular CLIs. I usually get one every four months and they have always been in the neighborhood of $500 each time. The last one, however, was only $200. But I have been carrying a rather large balance due to a substantial purchase, so that may be why.
Cards and Credit lines Acquired:
Escape by Discover (7.75K), Barclay Holland America Visa (7K), Macy's store card (7K), Bloomingdale's store card (2.6K), Citi Custom Credit Line (3.5K), PayPal Smart Connect credit line (2.7K), Chase Freedom Visa (5K), Chase United MileagePlus Visa (5K), Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa (6K), Amazon store card (2.2K), Lord & Taylor store card (550), Nordstrom store card (1500), Gold Delta SkyMiles from American Express (3K), Discover It (6.5K), PayPal Credit Line (1K).
