      Not really though. If it was biased, they'd share opinions (which they tend not to do). Really, they just say common misconceptions, and explain the surprisingly simple solutions.

    I'm confused. Does America rely more on credit cards than debit cards?
    (I'm not American; this is a very strange concept for me. Credit cards in my country are mostly used by those who have more than enough money to pay back an amount later, and don't need to think twice about paying extra for the interest amount. Either that, or they're people who desperately need the money for an immediate cause, and don't have any. It's definitely not the preferred choice here)

    • Nik Rich
      Nik Rich 9 дней назад +1

      Credit cards are more commonly used because they have nearly universal support, which debit cards don't really have in the U.S.

    Yeah it's not this bad in Canada. I pay bills through my credit card every month, accumulate the points, then just pay that amount off, and then I can fly just about anywhere I want within a year or two for no more than the cost of the taxes to get there.

    But if you don't use a reward card, then you are just laying the credit card tax and getting nothing back.
    I found a card which has about 1.8% return and no black out dates. Two years ago they lowered the points value, so that earn more points but they worth less. But they adjusted the balance so that previously earned rewards were not devalued.
    But that's in Canada, I guess it'll different in the US

  • resevil2396

    Thing is, you definitely can game the system if you pay attention to the details of your specific program, never carry a balance (I struggle with this myself, though I also dont have any high interest cards with flight rewards), and frequent flyer miles in particular require that you fly frequently. The way I see it, these programs are only really worthwhile for people who fly VERY frequently for work. For everyone else, its a lot of effort for something you probably will never get to cash in on. The same is true for most rewards programs, whether they are tied to a credit card or not. they are only really worth it if you are going to be spending a lot of money at the given business on a regular basis. otherwise many programs have them expire, or change their value long before you could build up enough to cash in.

    That's why I use only cash back rewards card, pay off balance on all of them every month and none of them have any annual fees. I literally have earned $650 in 2018 alone with all the cashback rewards, paid $0 in interests and annual fees and have refrained from buying anything that can't be paid off at the end of the month. This is the only way you can game the system., but you have to be a smart, responsible and educated consumer to do so. With anyone of this missing, you won't know/understand how the credit card companies will compound your interest month over month if you keep carrying the balance.

    "just a few month's notice"
    How much of a stump do you have to be if you payed for a subscription service and overlooked such a big change with a few months' notice. A month is more than enough time to cancel the service and book a flight yourself. The arguement made here by Adam is weak sauce. Weaker sauce than Ragu.

    Except that if you use debit you don’t have the same transaction protection benefits - basically insurance on your card paid by merchant fees. Pay off your card every month and the rewards and protections can be worth it.

    • Aaron Hancock
      Aaron Hancock 17 дней назад

      A credit transaction against a debit card is protected, but the merchant is charged a percentage of the transaction as a fee. A debit transaction against a debit card requires a PIN, is not protected in cases of fraudulent use, and typically costs the merchant a fixed amount per transaction (usually a lot less than the % fee unless it's a small transaction - that's why some merchants have debit transaction minimums). Chargebacks are only available on Credit transactions regardless of whether the account is a credit or debit account.
