$50.00 off a $51.00 or more purchase at BUY.COM

I just got an email from buy.com telling that they now accept the revolution card. ( https://www.revolutioncard.com/ ) If you are familar with "bill me later" then basically thats what revolution card is. Its not a physical credit card, its just an account that you have a virtual # for. Anyhoo the email said that apon approval of this "card" you will get 50.00 off your first purchase at buy.com of 51.00 or more. Here is the linky:

Thanks for the heads up. I am going to use this on a new UPS. I have been waiting for a good deal on one, but I'll just make my own deal with the $50 off.

I just did a "dry run" and mine is fine. Just for the heck of it I put call of duty 4 in my shopping cart and checked out, I filled out all the appropriate info, got to the payment screen and put in the info for the revolution card (btw, the "security code" section of the credit card screen is where you put in your pin #, it kept telling me I had to put in a security code and finally I realized they meant my pin) after all that I went to the final screen before you click submit and sure enough it only came out to be like 8 bucks. Just do a "dry run" like this and you will see what I mean.

It takes 6-8 days to get your card, so you (obviously) can't use it right away.

Too bad they don't e-mail you the card number.

P.S. - APR is 27.5%, so don't carry a balance on this baby!

Wrong on both counts. They give you your credit card number right away. APR varies depending on your credit rating.

My APR came out at 16% so it depends on credit. I'm not keeping this one though. I'll pay off the $8.99 and cancel it.

I am currently getting a "Cards Not configured please contact Customer Care" error when trying to enter my PIN. I'm spending an eternity on hold. I should've known better than to sign up for one of these cards.

I will be doing the same. I purchased a System Mechanic Pro for $50.00 and added a filler item to bring it over $51.00. This way I will receive $50.00 in rebates and make money on this one.

They are really buzzing about this over at CAG too:

For those of you who are worried about your credit report that CAG thread might be real helpful to you to understand.

Exactly. I'm now in the camp where I won't sign up for a new account for anything less than $100.

Many banks have high value freebies with opening accounts as well.

And the good thing about the Sony $100 credit is that you can use it anywhere.

Its an automatic thing you get accepted (or denied) after you submit your application in about 30 seconds.


I just got my $8.99 burnout paradise in the mail yesterday

Couple of questions, if I sign up, buy something, get the discount, then pay it off moments later is that it, like no more charges? Can I pay it off with paypal? and can I call and cancel the 'card' moments after I've paid it off?

Offer says it expires March 21st. Anyone know if that means one must use the reward by that date also?
