So many credit card promotions! Is there a catch?

You can’t blame us for liking free stuff. If your storage space is so full of free baggage from credit cards that it could double as a Samsonite warehouse, you might be wondering if there is a catch to all of these freebies.

The registration for all credit card promotions has one disadvantage: You will be disqualified if you receive more freebies in the future.

That’s because banks and comparison sites like us usually have the best giveaways for new sign-ups. Usually this is defined as people who either:

  • Never owned a credit card from this bank before, OR
  • The card was canceled at least 12 months ago

So if you think of playing the system by canceling and re-applying for your card, you’re out of luck!

Another thing to note is that some banks are more generous than others. If you are lucky, you will receive vouchers, cashback or luggage as soon as the card is approved.

However, some banks require you to spend a minimum (say, $ 1,000 in the first month) and wait a few months before you can even smell the giveaway.

It is therefore imperative that you read the terms and conditions and only register if you are sure that you can achieve the minimum expenditure.
