So if you spend $500 you'll get 2,000 points and then a $20 card. $20/$500 = 4%. Not bad. They seem to wait one entire billing cycle after the purchaes are paid for before issuing the cards. I guess they want some confidence that the purchases won't be...
Red chinos go very well with #8 cordovan - tassels especially.
