I wish I had waited until my statement closing date to request my check, but the lure of the > $50 total was too much to bear. I thought there would not be much of a difference between when I my cycle date and when requested the check a few days before. But there was like a $17 bump on my cycle date (must have been those gas and grocery bonus points), so if I had waited I could have received over $75.
Note to self, next time WAIT until the cycle date.
The check only took about 6 business days to arrive, and my $59.13 is the result of about 10 weeks of spending (including the washing machine).
Aside from their online "security" annoyances, I'm pretty happy with a credit card that sends me cash.
