Any tricky ideas for this situation?

As you may or may not remember, I have a big student loan to payoff.

So, with my monthly payments, my good friend Sallie Mae takes the money directly out of my checking account.

My question is: are there any bank accounts that "reward" you with their ATM/debit card? Sallie Mae won't let me charge my student loan payment (obviously).

Or are there any other suggestions to benefit from this evil necessity?

Re: Any tricky ideas for this situation?

You're saying that Sallie Mae accepts debit cards but not credit cards for student loan payments? If they're just doing a straight ACH withdrawal from your account, I don't see how you could qualify for rewards.

Here's some debit cards with rewards, but there are limitations and fees in most cases...may not be worth it.
