If you’re curious how to get the most out of your credit cards, what the deal is with credit card churning, and how to protect and improve your credit score, this is the episode for you.
I talk to Stephen Weyman, the blogger behind How to Save Money and the founder of the new credit card comparison site CreditCardGenius.ca, all about credit cards and he definitely proves that he has a wealth of knowledge on the subject.
The fact that he was inspired to develop Credit Card Genius because he had a massive Excel spreadsheet of data on credit cards already just goes to show how passionate he is about credit cards. And I’m so glad because I feel like even though most of us use credit cards, a lot of us still don’t know some very important things about them.
Credit cards can be great to earn points and cash back, and they have a number of other benefits too. But, that’s only if you use them responsibly. If used irresponsibly, they can have some not so good outcomes like consumer debt, a low credit score and even bankruptcy. So, the best way to make sure you use them the right way is to be well-informed and I hope this episode succeeds in helping you get there.
