Need someone to spend big, please advise
« on: February 02, 2019, 03:24:48 PM »
I'd like to get the CapOne Spark business bonus for spending $45k in the next few months but I can't manage that.  Happy to hear tips on how to make it happen, or if someone can spend we can negotiate.
I'd not located in the US though, which complicates thinks potentially.

Thank you,
Danny

Exhibit A, your honor, as to why things like Crown Heights happen.

Posting on a forum to random people asking them use your CC? Whatever could go wrong?

Perhaps don't sign up for cards for which you'll have an issue meeting thresholds? Or just meet the first 5/10k threshold and be content?

Yup this should be posted in that thread there. Maybe that will get the naysayers there to realize why its imperative that the fallout be publicized.

Which card is this?
I see a Cap1 card for biz that needs $4,500 of apending in 3 months.  Not $45,000.

For $4500 you get $500.  For 10 X the spend you only get 4 X the bonus. Bad deal.

Thanks for everyone's responses.  It'll be my business if I find someone who can spend, and if I consider them reliable.  Maybe I would find a small business owner, whose identity I can confirm.  Did it hurt to post the question?  It's not like I posted pictures of the card and my billing address.  Slow down.

I also asked for tips, not just someone who can spend.

The total profit if I can avoid the costs of spending for the entire bonus (200,000 points) would be around $3k.  It's worth it for me.  It's even worth it for me to just paypal it and pay 3%, but why not try this first.

So I guess I'll ask again, do any of you have any POSITIVE and HELPFUL information to share, or do you just want to try (unsuccessfully) to make me feel like an idiot for my post?

All your friends and relatives in NY and elsewhere paying utility bills.  Can't do this on a big scale, but can you get some friends to use your card - and pay you back.
In NY ConEd payments: fee of $3.35 for up to $1500 payment. 

Likewise National Grid: $2.25 fee for up to $600 payment.
arcadiapower.com - I haven't looked into this, but was just told that it allows you to pay utilites with cc without fees.
Phone/ cellphone bills.

Buying groups.  There's some risk, so choose the group carefully and keep detailed records. orders, tracking #s, amount paid, amount to be paid back, etc.


Tuition. For someone in your family, or aquaintance who tends to pay everything in cash/ checks.

the point here is not to make you feel like an idiot, rather to make sure you understand what your getting yourself into....

Or would you rather we keep quiet and then respond to you in one of the credit card scam threads? When you and the guy swiping are trying to figure out how to dispute charges and avoid jail time?

You won't get a more HELPFUL response than @AJK's was.

It seems to me that everyone is just trying to help you, noth the other way around. Their words may come across harsh but after seeing recent stories, it hits people the wrong way when they read a post like yours. And BTW- this guy in Crown Heights was also a "small business owner" who was able to be verified. Do YOUR OWN spending. It's simply not worth it otherwise. And don't even think family and friends- that has potential for even worse outcomes. Lots of debt AND lost friendships and/or relationships. Everyone here means your good. Hatzlacha.
