Hmm ... Think I Could Go for a Spend 3K in 3 Months ...

April 9th, 2015 at 05:24 pm

So ... I got a wild hair and decided to see if my EOB's were online yet for my ER visit.

Yep, they were. At least some of them.

So far my part is at least $840. There's a few other EOB's pending.

So, I'm thinking this might be a good time to go for one of those cards I usually could never do with my normal spending .. i.e. $3k in three months.

I'm thinking maybe one of those travel rewards cards - something I could fund my next flight to CA with.

Any ideas? I usually ignore posts about these kinds of cards since I usually would never come anywhere near it.

Thankful for my 3 paycheck month ... my ER visit will take pretty much that whole 3rd paycheck, and maybe more. Sigh...

    I just did 50,000 United miles with $2,000 spend no fee the first year

    The Southwest card was good for me. Smile

    Mickey - The only one I saw with a 50k mile bonus was a business card.

    LF - I looked up the SW card, it has a fee after the first month.

    You might consider which airlines flies where you want to fly in and out of. If you thought you could charge the entire $3K within the first month or so, Southwest will automatically refund the annual fee if you close it after earning your points. You might look at for the best deal. Also you really would want to wait until Southwest has a 50K point offer rather than their current 25K.
