Oh No! Here we go again! It’s disturbing that reports such as this have become so commonplace. KrebsOnSecurity is reporting that there is a pattern of possible credit card fraud suggesting that “hackers have compromised point-of-sale registers in gift shops and restaurants at a large number of Hilton Hotel . . . properties across the United … Read More
It seems that all of the cool people have had one or more credit cards hacked in recent weeks. Unfortunately, This is one club I’d rather not be in, but unfortunately I am.

When a renewal fee hits, even if you have a credit card that you want to keep, call and see what offers exist for you to keep the card. I just received retention offers for both the Hyatt and the Starwood cards – I felt like I’d won a trophy!
The honeymoon is over. I’ve had the credit card fee-free for one year. I’ve earned bonus points. It’s the time of reckoning. The bill has arrived – Do I pay the renewal fee and keep the card or cancel it?
I can’t help myself. I like the Ink Bold and Ink Plus cards by Chase.

Since I already have the personal version of this card, I applied for the business card … Read More
I noticed that my Hyatt Visa Card was up for renewal this month. The annual renewal fee on the card is $75 – which entitles the card holder to one free night at a category 1-4 hotel. I love Hyatt hotels, so even though I have often heard it said that you can do just … Read More
Sometimes I’d like to cancel most of my credit cards and be like the “normal folks” out there. Only be concerned with one or two credit card bills a month – always know when I’ve paid (instead of going through all of them every few days), and that would be that. I could sleep at … Read More
