Getting the most from your credit card?


I actually think i am.

When i started working remotely for ACSI, i started being responsible for buying every single thing that i needed for my job (stamps, internet, ink, plane tickets, parking, etc...) myself (of course i get reimbursed eventually). I very quickly realized that it was not going to work to use my debit card for these expenses (when we got married, we did away with credit cards). So i succumbed to find myself a credit card. After much research, i decided upon a Chase Freedom card and i have no regrets.

Today i checked my credit card statement online and got a glimpse of my rewards and i was thinking that i was wishing everyone was as lucky as me - to get FREE MONEY!! In the last 2 years, i've received about $500 total from Chase.

Here's what their website says about this card:

With Chase Freedom, you now have the flexibility to earn more cash back with every eligible purchase.

Your eligible everyday purchases earn you 3% cash back. It's never been easier to reward yourself with Chase Freedom.

Gas: Use your card for fuel, repairs, car washes and other gas station purchases
Groceries: Stock up on food, household goods and more at participating grocery stores
Quick Service Restaurants: Rewards add up fast from pizza to hamburgers to tacos - even sandwich shops, coffee houses and more

These are just some of the places you can use your Chase Freedom credit card to earn 3% cash back. And you'll still earn 1% cash back for every eligible dollar you spend on all other purchases.

You have a choice when it comes to rewarding yourself:

Reach $50 in rewards and redeem for a $50 check
Save up $200 in rewards and redeem for a $250 check


Well anyway, if you're unsatisfied with your credit card or if you're searching, i really recommend this one. They even called me this week to report "fraudulent charges", which were not actually fraudulent, but it gave me peace of mind to know that they're actually paying attention to stuff like that. I'm a pretty satisfied customer.
