Credit Cards

I've posted before about signing up for an annual American Airlines rewards card to get 30,000 miles for free, and then cancelling before you're charged the first annual fee. I've done this a few years in a row and it paid for a trip to Buenos Aires.

Anyway my husband does this as well and tonight he called to cancel his card. They told him if he would keep the card for another night he would give him 3,000 miles.

His first free year doesn't even expire until June so we told them we accept the additional 3,000 miles. I'm kind of offended that when I cancelled my card a few months ago they didn't offer me 3,000! Anyway hopefully others can benefit from this advice and lobby their credit card companies to give them free things as well!
