I am all about the budget! AND, I'm all about getting the most freebies you can to make every dollar stretch further! I've written a bunch of posts on how I take advantage of credit card rewards, and like to use my credit cards for every purchase to get some sweet bonuses. And I always pay them off on time, and don't pay a cent in interest. But having been a Dave Ramsey disciple, I always have the … [Read more...] about The Cash Gut Check

And I probably wouldn't have done it with this one either, except that I set it on a … [Read more...] about “Millionaire Teacher” Informal Book Review
Welcome to my "Credit Card Review" Series. I've gotten a bunch of emails since I started writing about my fun credit card churning experiments, collecting tons of points for airline and travel rewards.
