Million Mile Secrets reader, John, commented:
I was curious – are there no more debit card rewards programs out there or do you not really focus on those since the points you collect from credit card rewards are just that much better?
Thanks for your question, John!
Yes, there are still debit cards that will reward you for your spending.

Many folks don’t want to sign-up for credits cards because they have a low credit score (you shouldn’t sign up for credit cards with a score below 700) or because they don’t want the temptation of being able to spend more than what’s in their bank accounts. You just won’t get ahead paying interest on your credit cards, so it is best to NOT sign-up for credit cards if you can’t pay your balance in full each month.

Thanks to everyone who emailed and commented about their experience buying Vanilla Reload cards at Office Depot.
Unfortunately, many Office Depots removed the Vanilla Reload cards & stopped selling Vanilla Reload cards yesterday. We’re not sure about the exact reasons, but readers report being told that Office Depot was concerned about fraudulent purchases. However, a small percentage of readers still found them at Office Depot, but I wouldn’t expect this to last much longer. But there are still ways to take advantage of American Express Bluebird.
I suspect a larger reason is because lots of folks were buying Vanilla Reload cards with a Chase Ink credit card to earn 5X points. Frequent Miler wrote about this in May, but I never wrote about it in detail (I may have mentioned it in passing) until American Express Bluebird arrived in October.
