So, as I'm paying my credit card bills online, I think...
I wish these "rewards" were something more useful to me.
Just then, I get a beep that tells me I have new mail. It happens to be from BGG. And then, an idea!
Hey -- why not have a BoardGameGeek credit card that offers rewards that gamers would be interested in??
For instance, I get cash back from my Discover Card (which is good too). I can either get the cash back when I've accumulated enough, OR "cash" it in for discounted gift cards at a selection of stores.
Now, maybe cash back is too much to ask, but how about something like accumulated points that can be traded in for gift cards (or coupons, etc) to a list of game stores? Perhaps a program that vendors offer free shipping with BGG Card purchases at a minimum value? Or even just GeekGold with every purchase?
Anyway, it's just a thought. Maybe it would be something that could make a little money for BGG, allow us to flash a credit card with the Geek logo , and give us some rewards that are, well... rewarding.
