There's always a risk that you'll overlook some small print of a credit card bonus, and you won't get the rewards that you had expected. That's what happened to the Free Money Finance blogger who described
how he lost $280 in credit card rewards after he signed up for a cash-back Citibank offer. He missed the small print about the $300 annual cap on the extra 1% cash back. Cash back caps appear to be very common these days. So make sure you carefully review these details.
