    The End of Credit Card Rewards?

    The End of Credit Card Rewards?

    Are the banks pulling back credit card rewards? In this episode we’ll dive deep into a recent Wall St. Journal article which says yes. Citing examples of the banks lowering sign-up bonuses, and being fed up with “gamers” who unlock those bonuses only to ultimately put the card in a drawer.



    Along the way we'll discuss several products which do a good job of enticing customers to regularly spend money on their cards. We'll also highlight some products (and companies) who may've fallen a bit behind the times in terms of their offering.

Great

By far the best podcast out there related to maximizing points. I only wish he would produce them more often!

Great Podcast and Info!

I’ve really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Because of it I signed up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card and have started earning points on my everyday purchases. My family and I don’t travel much because it’s so expensive for our size family but since listening I’ve crunched the numbers and realized we could’ve traveled more if we had been taking advantage of potential reward opportunities.

Like others, I wish there was more content but I still listen to the old ones as great reminders of things to do and not do. Great work Peter! Keep it up!

Excellent tips, tricks, and reviews

Peter lays down the raw truth on which cards are best for you whether you’re looking for points for hotels, air points, bonuses, and more. Really breaks it down. Also very useful information on everything credit card related including credit score info and how to beat utilize credit card ecosystems and their rewards of all types.

Been listening to your podcast since day 1, big fan. Like you, I am primarily utilizing the Chase ecosystem.

What do you think of the 5X points bonus for bestbuy and other stores Chase put out today through Apple Pay? Also what do you think of Chases new investment option through their app?

Great work, keep it up!
