Now is a good time to reassess the rewards and points offered by your credit cards. The whole credit card industry has become more competitive over the past year, which means that card companies have been beefing up their rewards and offering more points, miles, cash back, etc. to lure customers. If you haven’t looked at the credit card options recently, you could be missing out on some great deals and some real money. There are many comparison sites out there. A new one we like is the Consumer Reports comparison tool.
Note: To be eligible for these rewards you need to pay off your credit cards in full every month. If you are not doing so, that should be your first priority.
