I’ll Take Better Coverage Over More Points

For those who collect (and spend) points and miles, deciding which credit card to use when making a purchase is a straightforward process. For most, the card providing the largest return is the one you’ll use. There are some calculations to do considering how much each different point is worth to you but for the most part, the card with the biggest return wins.

If you’re thick into the weeds of maximizing return, you might know of a workaround to get even more points. You may be able to buy a gift card at Staples for 5x points or you might just pick up a discounted gift card on eBay to save 10%. Don’t forget to use a shopping portal for extra points.

These changes also make me feel better about my choice to cancel my AMEX Platinum earlier this year.

Here are five reasons I’m glad I kept the Citi Prestige card:

Silvercar Is Our Favorite Rental Car Company (We Never Get To Use)

Silvercar. My most favorite car rental company. I’m a huge fan of so many of the things they do to make renting a car more enjoyable. I’ve never felt they were out to wring every penny out of me when I rented a car from them. Sure, their cars are more expensive than the other guys. However as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for.”

So what makes Silvercar so different than all of the other car rental companies?
