Happy Free Money Friday!
In the wonderful world of tracking free money offers, programs continually change their promotions.
Spend too much time watching the basketball tournament and you might miss out on some offers with deadlines this week!
Schwab 2% Card Ending
Rumor has it that the Schwab Credit Card which gives 2% cash back will stop accepting new applicants at the end of March.
This is no doubt one of my favorite cash back credit cards right now for everyday spending, so if you’ve been thinking about getting one… do so in the next few days!
Tax Software Prices Going Up
I got an email that prices on all of the H&R Block At Home tax software products will increase on March 27. Today is the last day to take advantage of their “early-season pricing.”
I’m not sure what TurboTax is planning for their pricing, but since the tax deadline is just around the corner, you might as well get them done!
Lending Club Prime Upgrade in March
Check your email for a free invitation for a Lending Club Prime upgrade; mine came on March 23. It appears there is only a specific account link in the email, I don’t see a general link.
Normally, their PRIME accounts have a 0.8% fee. The offer states that if you upgrade by the end of March, any money you have in your account now as well as money you add through the end of the month won’t be subject to the fee. The minimum for PRIME accounts is $5,000.
I don’t know much about PRIME, but clicked on the link to make sure I can review it before the offer expires. Once you click on it, you get a message that they’ll review your account and let you know more. You can then accept the terms if you like them.
Here’s the summary about PRIME that they gave: “With PRIME, you simply select the average target interest rate you want and investment preferences and your dedicated Investor Services representative will help ensure the timely execution of your orders.” Hmmm… sounds interesting.
OptionsHouse Offer Extended
Finally some good news… one program is extending a previously expired offer. The 100 Free Trades from OptionsHouse is extended until April 30, 2010.
This is good news for me since I need a new broker to make an update to our asset allocation… stay tuned for more on that next week!
All of the links to the Schwab credit card are dead.
Here’s one that’s still working: https://wwwa.applyonlinenow.com/USCCapp/Ctl/entry?sc=UAAS36
Thank you, that one worked. Sadly, Citi no longer offers their Driver’s Edge card and I was in need of a different card to recommend to friends. Looks like they’ll have to be fast to catch this one.
Glad to hear it worked. Wow, drivers edge was one of my first credit cards 15 years ago. I can’t believe it made it that long.
Here are some more ideas for cash back credit cards if you’re still looking.
