Re: Swiss credit cards - air miles, reward points?

Just a question, please don't get annoyed, but why the hell would any normal person need 15 credit cards?
In the US you can get up to 50.000 miles for a simple signup.

Signup, keep the card for 1 year (or otherwise minimum term), cut it and quit, after another year repeat it.

There are tons of companies offering that in the US.

They can do it because plenty of customers are stupid AND keep on having a negative balance on the card = super high interest to pay. Apparently thats normal in the US.

Behavior here, where 95% pay on time is hardly seen there. Banks here charge you an arm and a leg for "foreign" transactions. And bonus/cashback is seldom.

OP: Best you can get are like 20k miles from either Corner or SwissCard. But they are not as customer friendly as you might have been used in the US. The churning game wont work here.

For more information I suggest checking Flyertalk, Swiss subsection. Got a thread about it all.
