I have been using an LL Bean VISA card for 5 years - they reduced their rebate credit to .5% - (it started off at 1% ) of all your VISA purchases - but still have FREE Fex Ex shipping. I have received well over $1200 worth of free stuff from them in the 5 years I have had this card - not too bad.
I went to Eddie Bauer site today to order a carry on bag - on sale for $80 vs $120 - it
was in their MAY catalog I got in the mail today.
I signed up for their VISA card today - got 10 % off my first purchase, 3% rebate on
the order, and a $15 gift certificate - PLUS they give you a full 1% rebate on
everything you charge on the card ( 3% on items from their store ). Looks like now it
will be Eddie Bauer stuff for free from now on. Only thing missing is the free shipping!
