Buying a car with a credit card: How I drove away with half a million points – Frequent Miler

While not a new play, it is always good to remember that large purchases can present opportunities. It can make sense even if a fee is attached. There used to be options to get around dealers that refused credit cards but that loophole got closed once it went mainstream. The 15X small business offer may be gone but you can still use several welcome offers to recreate a similar windfall.  If you prefer to finance the purchase you could always pay “cash” and then get a loan after the fact. Many people just make their down payment with a card to hit a welcome offer as well.

  1. While some people LUV Southwest, I only fly it when there’s no other choice. Compared to other carriers, it’s rewards structure is less appealing. It has no meaningful partnerships. And, Business Select fares are about the same as domestic first class fares on other carriers yet you get the same rotten type of seat everyone else gets.
