Everything: Chime Card

 Everything: Chime CardRecently, Bancorp released a new prepaid card to the world: The Chime Card. It’s not a new Serve or Visa Buxx, it’s something entirely different. You could say it’s Bancorp’s answer to Amex Offers, since coupons are the main perk on this card.

Hit the break to learn about this awesome new tool!

Beginner’s Guide: First Credit Card

 Beginners Guide: First Credit CardI’m starting a new series to go along with my Everything and ITWOO posts, called the Beginner’s series (which is aptly targeted to beginners). If you’ve been in this game for a while, these posts will not be for you. As an alternative, you could head over to the Saverocity Forum and learn some new information from that community when I release these posts, but make sure to come back ;).

Everyone has their first. Some are shiny, some are dull. Some have foreign transaction fees, some don’t. Some give you rewards, while others don’t. The important thing they all do, though, is give you a credit history. So, if you haven’t signed up for a credit card and you’re looking for your first hit the break. Read More

Reselling: Part 1 – Intro

 Reselling: Part 1   Intro

I hope my teaser posts have you excited, because the next couple weeks will be filled with reselling tips, guides, and deals. I was a complete novice at reselling in March. I only started to add a little more spend on my credit cards and increase my stash of points. Now, however, it’s turned into something I could see myself doing for a living. I’m not at that point yet, but I hope to be eventually. I plan on documenting my reselling journey via intermittent posts, and on my monthly income reports.

Are you ready to learn the basics of reselling?

Let’s get started. Read More

Miles, Points, or Cash

 Miles, Points, or CashThe other day I was asked the age-old question, “cash or credit?” As a blogger, travel hacker, manufactured spender, and responsible credit card user, why would I use cash? It doesn’t profit me any, it’s germy, and it’s plain boring (credit cards are much prettier).

Short Answer: I wouldn’t.

The Happenings and Close-up Pictures of Credit Cards

The Happenings

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been doing a lot of reselling which has been bittersweet. It’s good, because I’ve been making some extra money, but it’s also rather time-consuming and a bit risky. If you’ve ever been interested in reselling, I highly suggest it! I’m working on a series of reselling posts to be posted in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

I’ve also been around the Saverocity Forum and Travel Codex lately and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. Both communities are full of great information about finance, manufactured spending, reselling, and more. If you aren’t a member, you should be.

Also, I won’t be posting about any techniques I find in either forum, as per the rules of being a member. I will say, though, if you’re looking for new MS techniques these are the forums to be apart of.

You may have noticed I changed my comment system back to Jetpack. I liked the idea of Disqus, I just hated how it worked on my blog. It was to glitchy for my taste. Which comment system do you prefer? Read More
