Keeping both Club Carlson Credit Cards

Last week I asked you all as to whether or not I should keep both Club Carlson Credit Cards as my annual fee on both of them is coming up in a few weeks. First of all, thanks so much for the comments and emails – they helped me decide what to do with both cards. I’ve decided that I’m keeping both the personal and business… Read More

Free $30 USD of Inflight WiFi each year

I normally don’t write about credit cards since just about every other blogger does, but today is an exception. I’m sure most of you (if not all of you) have heard about Discover’s new Discover-it Miles card. Basically the card gives you cash back ‘miles’ which you can redeem for a statement credit. I won’t talk about all the benefits, but I’d like to focus… Read More
