    sometime ago there was a ford card that gave you points on your charges that went to monies off a ford product.

    discover gives you a cash kick back also.

    thats what kind of card i am looking for.. i charge about 25,000 per yr. on my business card. and looking for a kick back..

    do you guys use a c/c that gives you a kick back?

    A friend told me his gas card has something like that. With all the gas I buy, I need to check into that for next year.

    I use Cabela's , my wife has a cow when I spend money on hunting items. Now I am able to get hunting toys for almost free.
    Check around there are alot of offers out there. I use Cabela's because I hunt and am trying to get myself outfitted with hunting gear.
    Advice check around.

    The big thing up here is Air Miles .... just like it says... you cash them in for free flights.

    Wanted to add .... these cards usually have a higher interest rate .. but they are great if you pay your full bill as it comes in.

    My limit on GM Mastercard is $500 a year I hit this in June and switch to Discover for the second half of year. Two years ago I got $1000 off Chevy truck purchase for business.

    Like bluemoon said, Cabelas has a good system, I think it's 1% of purchases from anywhere on the card and 2% of purchases from them. This all adds up to put towards cabelas purchases. WELL WORTH IT for clothes, boots, hunting goodies, truck stuff...
