    I have a 10K expense coming up soon. No time to get a new card to meet minimums. What's the best card to use?

    I have all the chase United/INK/Sapphire cards, A couple of Barclays cards and some Citi cards (including Arrival) Also some misc hotel cards like Ritz and Marriott. Amex, too, of course.

    Ideas are especially welcome..

    The best thing is to open a Lowe's LAR account, you will receive 5% off with every purchase,

    You can buy 10% off coupons off Ebay for less then 2.09,

    When you get the LAR statement, you can go to Office Depot and buy HIGC. With your INK CARD and get 5X for the 10k purchase.

    So 50,000 pts, plus $1,000.00 cash off the 10k purchase.

    Disclosure, I have never done this before...:confused:

    Last month SM sold 100 LGC with a 20 AMEX GC..
    My SM ran out if stock, someone bought them all.

    That guy got 30% off his purchases for a while...:D

    I have not seen any HIGC cards in my area in a long time. So if you can't find those, replace it with Lowe's gift cards, obviously.

    No, gift cards can not be used to okay an LAR,

    They are at Staples Office Depot, have also seen them at speedway gas stations,

    Ask members about your area, and they may be able to help.


    HIGC can be used at HD Sear,Harbor Freight, SW Stores and many others, it is a Discover Card,

    What made you think that the OP needs to spend $10K in those stores?
    edit: duh, I overlooked the thread's title -- never mind.
