As we come to the end of the year, here are a couple ways to
get your minimum spend in for your credit card new sign up bonuses.
If you make charitable donations, making the donation via
credit card is a way to get some additional spend in. I have not seen a charity
yet that charges a fee for using a credit card. If you are doing your end of
year charitable donations, why not get the benefit of putting that spending on
a credit card?
If you have an FSA or HSA,
paying those bills via credit card is another way to get the spend in.
For HSA, you can pay the bill with your credit card and then ask for
reimbursement via check from your HSA account.
If you are planning to give out gift cards as gifts for Christmas,
this is a very easy way to increase the spending on a particular credit card.
Even better if the credit card has a supermarket bonus. Use the credit card to
buy gift cards at your local supermarket and get the spend bonus in addition to
meeting your sign up bonus requirement.
2020 has been a tough year and many people find they are
spending less this year than in previous years. This is one way to still take
advantage of credit card sign up offer and still make the minimum spend.
