S2, Episode 34-[Confession] Why Credit Card Rewards Never Work Out The Way You Plan

S2, Episode 34-[Confession] Why Credit Card Rewards Never Work Out The Way You Plan

March 27, 2020

Have you ever wondered if you are getting screwed by your credit cards?

Could there be a better deal available?

How can you compare one card versus another?

What happened to me recently is that I was forced to think more about this when a regular listener sent me an e-mail. I was intrigued by the question and dug into some research.

I was really happy with the resources I found in the process. Plus... it forced me to look at my own spending habits and made me question if I am going about money the right way.

Have you ever felt that way?
