In the right hands, credit cards can be a source of tons of freebies. I especially love cash back credit cards since you get back a bit of the money you spend, and who doesn’t love money, amiright?

If you’re an auntie, however, the thing that really pushes you to apply for a new card could be the sign up bonus of a free suitcase. To each his own.

Here are 3 of the best credit card cashback sign up bonuses the banks are dangling right now… even if you don’t end up using the card, there’s no harm collecting these benefits.
