Is the Bilt Mastercard Worth It for Non-Renters? The Pros and Cons

When I first heard about the Bilt Mastercard, I was both intrigued and excited. That's because the card's signature feature is the ability to pay rent with the card and earn 1 point per dollar (while also avoiding any fees). Seeing as we lived in an apartment at the time, I decided to apply for the card and was thrilled to find that the platform only got better with time....

PNC Cash Rewards Visa Credit Card Review

For more than a decade, my wife has been a loyal PNC customer. This includes holding one of their rewards credit cards — which, at one time, was our only credit card. Well, over the years, that's changed a lot as our card mix has evolved. And, now, another change has come as the bank recently moved us over to the PNC Cash Rewards Visa card. So, what does the...

2023 Bilt Rewards Mastercard Review

A few months back, I was introduced to the Bilt Rewards Mastercard when it was announced that Wells Fargo would be issuing the card. What interested me in the product was that, at long last, it would reward cardholders on one of their largest monthly expenses: rent. Looking more closely at the card, I found that I had a lot of questions — and ones that I likely couldn't answer unless...

American Express Green Card Credit Card Overview

In the past, I've talked a lot about American Express cards such as the Platinum and Gold cards. However, there's a third option in this line-up that isn't as discussed these days: The American Express Green Card. Ironically, once you see the card, you may realize that it's actually what you envision when you think about what an iconic Amex looks like. What's more, the Green card has plenty of...

Curve Review: Can it Merge All of Your Credit Cards into One?

Credit card rewards are great, but working to maximize those rewards can be daunting at times. Not only might your quest require you to carry around multiple cards wherever you go but you'll also need to remember to use the "right" card for any given transaction. Given this reality, wouldn't it be nice if you could just use one card to make all of your purchases and have those transactions...

Does the Apple Card Belong In Your Wallet? (2023 Review)

In 2019, Apple announced what many had suspected: it was releasing its own credit card. While Goldman Sachs would be the ones actually issuing the product, the card would combine the user-friendly tech and stylish aesthetic that the company’s many raving fans have grown accustomed to. Then the Apple Card arrived — and so, naturally, I had to get one for myself. I’ll admit that my interest in Apple Card...

Money at 30: M1 Finance Owner's Rewards Credit Card Overview

For a time, it seemed as though every FinTech was rolling out its own debit card — including some that broke the mold with some interesting features. Since then, some neobanks have moved on to creating unique credit card products instead. Among them is M1 Finance, which originally launched its Owner's Rewards Card in 2021. Since then, the card has undergone some tweaks, but the idea remains largely the same:...

Cash App Cash Card Review (2023)

Have you ever owned something for years before one day you suddenly discovered a super useful function you never knew it had? That’s essentially what happened to me with Cash App. Despite downloading the app long ago, I apparently didn’t keep up with its growing power and ability to save me money — that was until a couple of years ago. So what is the Cash Card and what makes...

2024 SoFi Checking and Savings Review

Ever since I started taking an interest in the FinTech sector, one company whose name I’ve seen pop up over and over again is SoFi. Lately it seems as though that theme has been sent into overdrive as the company has not only become a household name thanks to its stadium naming rights deal but also because of the company’s continued product expansions. The most interesting development in my mind...
