We’re in full swing with our summer reboot bringing you one of our most popular credit card episodes – Credit Card Rewards Giving You a Grand. While we’re on hiatus for a few weeks we’re bringing you some of our very best, most popular, and just great episodes for you to enjoy twice a week.
Would you say no to an extra grand? That’s what I thought…
These days credit card companies are offering all sorts of insane credit card rewards sign up bonuses for you, the customer. If you’re not using a rewards credit card, now might be time to investigate. There are tons of ways you can use the rewards points, for instance:
- Travel for the Holidays
- Exchange points for gift certificates for family and friends
- Save on car rental for your summer getaway
- Towards airfare to that exotic location you’ve been dreaming of
If you meet certain conditions, credit card reward points could just be the best gift you’ve ever received for spending money. These points are worth cash in your hand.
