Credit card usage promotions for existing cardholders

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

I had a few interesting offers in the mail this past week from credit cards we already have. These are all offers (most likely targeted) for bonuses for using our card. We received these three within the last week:

1. Sony Card (Chase): Get a $25 statement credit for spending $100 or more with the card from July 6 through August 2.

2. Citi Mastercard: Make three purchases between July 1 and September 15, receive a voucher good for a free round of golf, a beauty treatment, and a 2-for-1 dining experience at selected locations.

3. AMEX Blue: Make three purchases between July 1 and July 31, earn 2500 bonus membership reward points (good for a $25 gift card).

Update: Received this in the mail today for the Citi Professional Card: Make $300 in purchases between July 1 and August 31, earn 3000 bonus Thank You points.

The common thread between these cards is that all of them have not been used in quite a long time. I guess it goes to show there are other benefits to keeping old cards open besides just the positive effect on your credit score.
