Does this credit have a $10 value to you?
Yes it does. I can fly to Boston and use it there. I can give it to my fourth cousin's friend's ex-classmate who lives in Boston and would like to use it for me. Etc etc. The fact that I do not find it convenient to do so does not negate its intrinsic value.

Let me ask you a question:
Let's say you are on a flight leaving Israel with 10 Shek in your pocket, and you know that you have no way of using it back home in the USA. You also know that you are not returning to Israel in the foreseeable future [Golus plan]. So, you decide to give the 10 Shek to a Meshulach on the plane who is collecting money. Are you not entitled to deduct that against what you owe Maser?
I imagine you will answer yes.
Well, how is this case different?

huge dif between giving something that you have opposed to causing someone to gain cuz of you withoutt you actually giving anything. if you would give the meshulach 10 shech and then someone else repays you that may be maiser, but informing aq meshulach where he can find 10 shech that you could of taken for yourself is dif

i didnt think you would state your opinion in a halacha thread without making it very clear that its just your opinion and not the actual halacha

Not sure if this has been discussed yet but any ribbis issues in asking a friend to do you a favor and use your cc? If there is maybe having him prepay would help?

Are you not paying the balance in full and therefore being charged interest? Or are you talking about the points part of it?

I'm talking more of the favor part. You're asking him to do you a favor and accept a loan (so that you can get points/sign up/whatever). Is that not an issue? As far as the points go if you consider those as a rebate would that be an issue?

I'm not a posek. I have the same questions you have. I asked what your problems were bec I was hoping you would say one of the questions isn't a problem and share the reasoning.

I plan on asking a posek one of these days but I probably won't post the psak publicly.

I haven't learned the sugya and therefore not familiar with that terminology.

I was told that if I  lend somebody my cc to use, and he carries a balance,  I would need to pay the interest.  If I pass on the interest charges to him its very not poshut and it could be a regular case of ribbis. The heter would be to make a heter iska beforehand (or even afterwards? ).

Stalpes offers a coupon for $20 off and write that it cannot be used for gc's.  Sometimes it's worth it to try because the system allows it and they don't chap.  If you are using their coupon and violating their tnai is it muttar?

Correct. TTBOMK, one cannot "exploit" a mistake, even of a goy.
