Credit Card Review: Chase Ink Cash

There have been offers in the past that would give money or extra miles if you used an enrolled card to pay your cell phone bill or insurance bill and I took full advantage of those offers when they were available. I was excited to read about this new offer that was hitting accounts on Thursday: Continue reading “Check Your AMEX Accounts For This Offer – Bonus For Paying Your Cable or Satellite TV Bill”
