I think that I have said many times, how I love my Marathon Master Card. I get 5% back on all Marathon purchases. That card was one of my closest friends. Well I guess my closest friend is leaving me. I got a notice in the mail that they are replacing my Marathon card with a Chase Freedom card. I will get 1% back on all purchases (this is the same as the main card that we use(I have auto-pay for everything set up on our Bank of America card)). They will give us a bonus 4%. I will have to call them every three months to get the 4%.
It seems like it is only a matter of time before they faze out the extra 4%. I just wonder how long before they try and get rid of all of the reward programs.
Enjoy the rewards while we got'em,
