31 Jan 2017 Tip – Do you have a Credit Card? Does this card give you any benefits in terms of points, travel benefits etc? Here is my tip, if you have a card and it gives you points every time you use it to buy stuff and/or your travel, you should use it. To give you an example, my primary credit card gives me 4 points for every $ I spend on grocery, gas, and dining. I also get 1 point for every $ on all other purchases. Say I bought $1000 grocery a month, I will get $40 in points. In a year I will get $480 in points.
Besides the points, if I used my credit card to pay for my flight tickets, I will get travel benefits such as trip insurance, trip cancellation, flight delay, baggage delay and purchase protection etc. Suddenly, I am getting points for every purchase and to top off the deal, I am getting travel benefits for free. What else can I ask for?
In case if you don’t have a credit card like mine, talk to your bank. If you applied for the same credit card, my bank will give $200 worth of points just to join our program. Sweet? Yes, very sweet. Let us know if you have any questions about this strategy?
