Rick,I am finally taking the time to write and thank you for the credit card sign-up bonus info that you and your family so generously collect and post at your website.
I want you to know that I learned about the generous Capital One matching mileage bonus from your site some time ago, managed to get the card, and matched my almost 80,000 miles from one of my airlines, and used that $800 for an unforgettable five-day stay in Banff National Park in Canada last summer. This was particularly welcome as it was my chance for my two daughters and me to celebrate the end of my six-months of biweekly chemo sessions to treat my Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.Two days ago I received the news that my scan results are all clean and I can go back to living a normal life. So, I simply want you to know that one of your readers out here in cyberspace is very grateful to you for drawing my attention to a promotion that ended up allowing me to revel in some of the most spectacular mountain scenery our continent has to offer. And who knows what role that mountain air and scenic hikes might have played in my recovery!
I also want to express my pleasure with the contributions from Andrew and Shannon. I follow Andrew’s postings with awe. His commitments to health care in the developing world are an inspiration. And the photos that accompany his postings are works of art!
So anyway, thanks so much for the example you and your family are setting for the rest of us!

Thanks, Kristen, and so glad to hear about your recovery. As you get back on your feet, keep an eye on those credit scores and add a few more sign-up bonuses. Go slow until you can see the pattern in how they affect your credit score. – Rick
Another Sunday Success Story
I put this comment on Shannon’s post, but wanted to email you too. My insurance is due and it gives cash as the only option to pay. I called my agent and asked him if I can pay by credit card. He said they don’t advertise it, but you can go to the insurance company’s website and pay by credit card with no fee. Now this is just one insurance company (Erie Insurance), but I’m sure there are others. Yay to $800 worth of points!! But UGH to the last 10+ years of getting no points for this!!
50,000 Thank You Points, $2,500 minimum spend !
