When To Keep, Downgrade Or Cancel A Credit Card That Has An Annual Fee

When you have a credit card with an annual fee, you should evaluate every year whether or not the benefits of keeping the card are greater than the cost of keeping the card. This would seem to be an easy thing to do but there are many variables that need to be taken into consideration. A card that has great value to one person may be useless to another and therefore when reading posts about if a card is worth it, remember that Your Mileage May Vary.

How to Donate Your Miles and Points to Support Hurricane Florence Victims

I know watching the news stories about the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence can make you feel helpless. The scope of this event just causes you to feel numb and you want to do something but don’t know how you can help.

Luckily, most of the airline and hotel programs are making it easy to contribute in any way you can. Even if you don’t have cash to spare, you can donate those random points you have here and there to the recovery effort.

Our Underwhelming Offers From IHG’s New Promotion

If you don’t want to do something, just don’t do it at all. That would be my advice to IHG after looking at the offers I just received. Don’t get me wrong, earning more points is always better than earning less points. However if you’re going to put out a promotion where I have to log in and enroll to see my personalized offer, it better be worth the time it takes me to do so. This IHG offer wasn’t.

More importantly, it doesn’t make me want to spend any more money at IHG hotels that I otherwise would have, which is the main reason to have a promotion, isn’t it?
