The very lovely Allison emailed to point my attention to this American Express offer (I am linking to the post she sent rather than directly to the offer, because that looks like an affiliate link and if you decide to do the deal, I’d like for the original poster to get a few pennies), wherein signing up for a card gets you a free round-trip plane ticket with your first purchase, or $250 cash.
Now you know that I’ve posted credit card bonus deals before, along with caveats about how you shouldn’t go opening new credit cards all willy nilly. You need to understand about credit scores and how your choices affect them before you decide to partake of a deal like this. But if you either need a credit card or your score is high/stable enough to withstand another open line of credit, this could be a great deal. (Especially with the cost of plane tickets being what it is right now. Ouch.)
It looks like the deal is good through August 31st, 2007. So you’ve got until Friday to decide if you want in. Thanks, Allison!
