These programs are intended to encourage you to spend money on your credit card. The basic idea is that you receive either points or cash for making purchases on your credit card. They can afford to do this based on the interest that they charge customers for credit card balances and the transaction fees that they charge to retailers. As they receive a transaction fee every time your credit card is used, it’s little wonder that credit card companies are so keen for you to use it as frequently as possible."
