CSR Travel Credit Changes

The Cool Kids' Card is about to get a little less hip. The $300 travel credit that comes with the CSR card will no longer be tied to a calendar year but rather the cardmember anniversary, starting for those who apply on May 21st or later. What this means is you can't sign up for the CSR, pay the $450 annual fee, max out the travel credit this calendar year and then max it out again in 2018 before canceling it before your next $450 annual fee is due. This makes a lot of business sense, but there is still time for you to get maximum dollars from the travel credit, but you'll have to apply soon (and be under 5/24)!
