Credit Cards for Your Wallet - Q2 2012

Disclaimer - The Discover offers are no longer valid.

Related Links

These are the Credit and Debit cards that should be in your wallet from April until June.  The Discover card will also have 5% on groceries in May, but not in April or June.

American Express Blue Preferred – 6% cash-back at groceries.  There is a $75 annual fee so it is only for those who spend a lot of money on groceries.

Discover - 5% cash-back on restaurants and movie theaters from April until June, but during the month of May, you can get 5% cash back on groceries as well.

   - Why I use Discover over Chase Freedom

Chase Freedom – 5% cash-back on groceries and movie theaters and 1% cash-back backup everywhere else when American Express is not accepted. You get extra cash-back on up to $1,500 in that category ($75 maximum per quarter) so keep that in mind.

Bank of America Cash Rewards - 3.3% cash back on gas and 1.1% on everything else (when Amex isn't accepted) with a Bank of America Checking Account (3% and 1% without their checking account).

Amazon MP3 Download - Free $3 in Credit

Amazon has a system similar to iTunes that allows you to download MP3s for around 99 cents each. The only difference is that you can often get free credits to Amazon and now is one of those examples.

You can get a $2 credit for putting in the promo code HITUMBLR (You don't need a Tumblr account).  Just go to this link and put in the code.  You need to use your credit before April 1st.

You can also get a $1 MP3 credit for buying certain kindle books.  One of the books is free for Amazon prime members so if you "buy" the book, you will get a free credit.  You need a kindle or to download a kindle app.

Amazon - iPod Charger $0.78 and Free Shipping

Update: My charger came and it works.  A great deal at 78 cents!

I don't really get how they could possibly be making any money but I just bought an iPod charger for $0.78 cents on Amazon with Free Shipping.  The shipping alone must cost much more than the 78 cents.  It is estimated to come in 17-28 days.

Here is the link:
USB Sync and Charging Cable Compatible with Apple iPhone (White)

I figure even if I am getting ripped off, I am only losing 78 cents and if I am not getting ripped off then I am getting a really cheap iPod charger :)   I can always complain to Amazon if they don't fulfill the order.
