Another week has gone by and its time for me to summarize this week’s posts for those who have missed out. Links are provided to each one for curiosity.
This was a quiet week for me because I was getting ready for a trip to Arizona that I’m taking this week. However, I feel that the articles that I wrote were of quality. I hope to write more great articles in the coming months.
Today is the last day of March and the first quarter. Just a quick reminder that Chase Freedom, Discover It, and the other quarterly rotating cards are switching categories tomorrow. The quarterly spend limits on the cards that have them also reset.
Without further ado, here’s the weekly review:
This post from Monday aims to help you decide when to downgrade or cancel a card. I ponder three questions and give different answers for various situations. Again, your mileage may vary with downgrading as it might not the smartest option for your situation. But it can be the best option for others.
This post explained and analyzed a rumor that came from American Express about the Green Card. Introduced in 1958, the Green Card is the original charge card (and, by proxy, credit card). Despite its decades-long history, the Green Card is useless in its current iteration. However, American Express may be changing that by Summer 2019.
Rumors about these changes have been stewing since January 2019. But the rumors were updated this week. After analyzing, I truly hope that Amex implements the changes. The Green Card has the potential to be a great card once again, especially for the younger generations.
My last post for this week highlighted some of my favorite cards without annual fees. Cards without these fees are great for building credit history and points balances. And many of them are fantastic supplementary cards to the best travel cards with annual fees.
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday! Stay posted for more content next week!
