Actually, it depends on the card. Some do pay out between $100 and $200. I understand why people don't like constant blog posts hawking credit cards, but I don't see a problem with this offer. The nice thing here is that if you don't want help, simply ignore the email. If you do, then you (presumably) get valuable advice about which credit cards to sign up for. In exchange, you use the links provided to you. It doesn't cost you anything and if you're new to credit card churning, it could be incredibly valuable. Yes, you would have to trust Online Travel Review to give good advice, but it is clearly in his best interest to try to do so.
