WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

They will set you up with auto rewards, which means every time you have 2500+ rewards they will send you a random gift card and deduct those points. Also well, if you are going to do the 30,000 points with $3,000 spent in the first 3 months, make sure you spend the money in the first 2 months because they will put a hold on all your purchases for about 1-2 weeks til the bonus expires.I personally regard opening this card with Wells Fargo. I’ve have 3 reward cards up to this point and I’ve never had to jump though so many hoops like I do with them.
