First, let me say that I do not have a credit card for personal use, and will never have one. Been there, done that, and learned my lesson the hard way when I was a bachelor. I do however have an American Express Cooperate card that I my company gave me for T&E expenses. I started thinking that rather than using the cooperate card, shouldn't I get my own rewards card like the one at Bass Pro and get rewards for the money I spend and get reimbursed. It seems like a no brainer, but know there has to be a catch. The point system explanation online is pretty vague. Does anyone have any experience with these cards or can explain the reward points?

Thanks!

I like the Carbela's card better your points never expire with them.

There is a good chance that your employer requires that you use the Corporate AMEX for job-related expenses whenever possible. My employer requires it.

For personal expenses I use a Cabela's Club Visa and a Mastercard that also has reward points.

generally, the interest rate on the cabela's card is significantly lower than the pro bass card

I'd say your employer is getting some sort of kickback on your AMEX...and it doesn't matter what the interest rate is if you pay it off every month. In fact, if you can't pay your balance off every month what are you gaining from a card with a point system??? Nothing.

I use my Bass Pro card to pay almost every monthly expense I have. This lets me write one check at the end of the month for all my expenses. I never carry a balance so the interest rate doesn't matter and I have never had a point expire on this card. I have had either a Bass Pro Visa or a Bass pro master Card for about 15 years.

Thanks for the advice! I will definitely check into the Cabela's card. I was actually the last employee to get a company AMEX 8 years ago and are phasing them out. They now make people use personal cards and they reimburse. I often use my debit card, or cash as I know as long as I have a receipt I will be reimbursed.

I use my gander mountain card most of the time. It pays double rewards on groceries and gasoline. My wife and I use it for everything that can be paid for with a credit card, including utilities, cell phone bills, groceries, gasoline, etc. We typically get $60 to $80 per month in gander rewards bucks. It is free guns, ammo, hunting gear, or whatever you need from gander mountain. I like free...

A friend has one that he uses for his business and he completely outfitted his new duck boat with rewards points.

FYI the Bass pro card has a limit on the number of rewards points you can earn...

1) You MUST turn in receipts and be held accountable with a company card
2) In the (possibly) unlikely event that your employer no longer has the resources to reimburse you, it is your name on the card when you can't pay....not theirs
3) The BassPro card is owned by Bank of America. They're not worthy of one red cent of your interest payment.
