Credit cards here always launch their promos during the second half of the year. For a purchase of such amount, you get some points that you can exchange for free items. Last year, one credit card had a freebie of chocolate cookies - we had redeemed tons of it that we gave away to neighbors. This time I am collecting points for gift certificate of a known brand of clothing. I already have points equivalent to $300 that I can use to purchase in that store. There are more promos to come.
