So what are some perks out there? Anything is game. Free sony stuff, free CD's, free "protection," free advice, free llamas. Just tell me perks that are out there on cards!

I just applied for (and was conditionally approved -- waiting for online approval to be over) a Fleet Edvance Platinum Visa. One of the Fools mentioned it a month or two ago and I thought it was a cool idea.

It gives you a cashback-style reward in US EE Savings Bonds. It's either 1% or 2% based on how you look at it (whether you consider the "purchase cost" of the bonds, or, the eventual face value when they mature years from now).

They also have a low 2.9% BT offer (6 months -- no transfer fee). Of course, BT's don't earn you any bonds.

And, it's Visa. "Everywhere you want to be ;)". I think Visa's even the official card of the Olympics -- if you want to be heading that way someday ;). I *do* know it's accepted at Disney :).

I'm not affiliated with Fleet in any way -- except hoping to get my card and figure out if the deal actually works out the way I'm understanding it will ;). I'm not yet quite fluent in CC legal-ese.
