Received this question from JL:
I cannot believe you earn more than $1100 cash back last year. How?
I earned my cash back through:
- ebates.com – my favor cash back site. Last May, ebates offered 16% cash back on a lot of major department stores. That was how I earned the big fat check of $351.09 in August 2015.
- US Bank Cash+ Visa Signature – it allows you to pick two 5% categories and one 2% categories on your card. Also, every year you get one time $25 bonus on $100+ by redeeming your cash back.
- Chase Freedom Card – this is a cash back card with 5% in different categories every quarter. 5% categories for second quarter of 2016 are grocery stores and wholesale clubs. You can purchase varies gift cards in grocery stores to fully maximize your 5% cash back earning. As you know, I love miles more than cash back. Therefore, I often combined my ultimate rewards in Chase Freedom card with my ultimate rewards in Chase Ink Plus, so I can transfer my points to participate loyalty airlines and travel in style.
