Home Theater

I’m going to do it. I’m going to buy a surround sound system. How can I afford it? Credit card points. We’ve been buying everything we can with credit cards, then paying them off in full each month. And so I was able to order $300 worth of Best Buy gift certificates today. That’s not going to buy me the best system out there, but it’s going to get me something decent, which is all my living room needs. I mean, the kids sleep above the living room, so the idea of having ground shaking audio isn’t exactly as appealing as it might have been to me in my single days. I just want something that can give me 5.1 audio, making all this blu-ray fun I’ve been having a bit more blu-ray funnish. So now I’m in the midst of figuring out makes and models–I enjoy this sort of thing far too much.

  1. We get cash
    We do a cash-back credit card. I think I got around 150 last year (and we put a minimal amount on them just because I don’t like to have stuff on there I might forget about). Have you compared the two — do you get more when you get the gift cards then when you go for cash?

  2. Re: We get cash
    Yeah–like 50% more on mine. Otherwise I would have gone with the cash option, too. I’m thinking about shopping around for a card with better benefits/rewards, though. This one is about 1%. I’ve heard there are better, but I have yet to look.
