The Brooks Brothers credit card has been full of surprises lately. There was an uncapped 10X promo, a random $20 credit opportunity, an increased sign-up bonus, and now they’re offering me $30 to make a few utility payments:
I get offers like this on my Comenity Marathon credit card every once in a blue moon. They tell you that you get a credit for setting up automatic payments, but the payment doesn’t have to be recurring since they have no way of knowing whether or not it is. You just have to make one payment to somebody with the proper merchant category code. This particular deal is $10 for each new utility you pay. It’s only $30, but it’s only a few minutes of work, so I’ll take it. Who needs a stupid 100,0000-point bonus for the Chase Sapphire Reserve anyway?
Brooks Brothers also sent my annual birthday gift. If anbody’s curious, this is what they send:
There’s no minimum purchase, it’s a flat $20 off. The problem is that it’s only good for one month. Hopefully I’ll have some more gift cards in from that restaurant promo by the end of the month that I can stack with this one.
