One month ago I wrote that I had received the first promotion in ages for my Brooks Brothers credit card. My question was whether it was a one-off promotion or a sign of things to come, and happily it turns out to have been a sign of things to come.
The next promotion I received came about two weeks ago:
Double points on travel? That’s pretty lame. The newest offer just arrived the other day:
Twenty dollars for five purchases? Sure, I’ll go for that one!
Between the promotions and the annual bonus, this card has earned me $60 with almost zero effort in the last few months. It’s not enormous, but it’s not nothing either. I’ll take it. Given that it’s getting harder to churn credit card bonuses, it’s nice to have a diversified credit card portfolio that pays off in different ways.
And for those of you who read about the Best Buy promotion I just got: I’ll point out that both the Best Buy and the Brooks Brothers credit cards are issued by Citibank.
