    New Credit Card Bonus Categories Help Maximize Spending During COVID-19

    What the heck do you do right now with a credit card that earns a bunch of bonus points for travel? We’re talking about that in depth today.

    Pretty much all the banks are jumping on the bandwagon of new bonus categories during the pandemic. Jen from Deals We Like joins us today to help rearrange your wallet to maximize your earning right now. And, a brief reminder to make sure you’re getting enough value out of your credit cards to keep paying those annual fees. Especially on the premium cards, there’s no sense paying $400 or $500 a year if you’re not getting the bang for the buck.

Overall great podcast

I really enjoy this podcast and the information that they host gives is usually really helpful! One critique would be that I would like to hear less about Disney on this podcast. There are plenty of Disney podcasts out there and I know many award travelers have no interest in Disney. I also really enjoy the wide variety of guests he brings on the show. I do miss the interview format of guests that the Now Boarding podcast had. Maybe bring some of that back?

Thanks for the podcast, Ed!

Saved me money immediately!

Am a new listener and used Auto Slash this past Thanksgiving week after hearing about it on this podcast. Rented a full size SUV for a lower rate than posted ANYWHERE else. I’m still amazed. So glad I found this podcast!
