You’d have to spend 45k on your credit card in a year to qualify for the full €225 though, or 28,800 to get the €144 on offer with Avantcard. On the other hand, all spend counts I think (hotels, flights, etc.) and I don’t think there’s a monthly max like AC or KBC have.

All credit/debit card issuers are already using your spending data, so this is no different.

KBC are offering 4% back on grocery and online transactions for people who apply for a new KBC credit card between July and August. That seems a hard offer to beat.

Limited to a max of €40 back a month.

The 4% is for three months only, but still interesting. What are KBC like on credit limits? If I'm going to do a balance transfer, I'd need a decent limit.

KBC would only offer me 3k credit, Avant offered me 7k so went with them. Good offer all the same by KBC though

Yeah I got twice as much with Avant as KBC would give also. Avant seemed to be much more thorough with their checks though. It felt like they really scrutinized my statements while KBC seem to simply approve the card.

As part of the application, you can transfer your balance from one to the other. You will get a letter of closure so you don't have to pay stamp duty again.

Signup up about 2 weeks ago. Plenty of purchases after signing up. Got my statement this morning. Nada - zilch - nothing at all. I appreciate hotels don’t count, do online tickets count, pay parking, train tickets?

Yes, a lot of travel related spending. But a few items in Woodies and Argos too. Was too late for major purchases earlier in month.

Few football tickets, they obviously don’t count either.
