Money at 30: Using My American Express Airline Incidentals Credit

Over the past two years, I've loved using the benefits that my American Express Platinum Card has afforded me. In fact, said perks have also evolved in just the past couple of years, with some temporary additions coming in 2020 and a big overhaul arriving just a few months ago. Yet, amid these changes, one of the card's more complicated features has remained: the airline incidentals credit. To catch you...

What’s Going On With the Uber Credit Card?

A few years back, I got my first new credit card in probably a decade. Since that momentous occasion, I’ve received numerous credit card offers in the mail and have proceeded to throw them in the trash each and every time.

Money at 30: Venmo Credit Card Overview

Last year, following a few months of teasing, the Venmo Credit Card made its grand debut. With a novel reward structure, bright-colored card designs, and app integration, the card made a bit of splash.

Money at 30: Revisiting Vital Card — Should You Invest?

It was February of 2018 when I got an email from someone working at the startup Vital Card. They were reaching out to ask if I might peruse their site and do a review of their upcoming product — then set for a fall release.

Money at 30: Weighing the Value of the American Express Platinum Card After Year One

Note: American Express has made some big updates to the Platinum card. You can check out those changes here. Below you'll find my original year one review, including the perks and annual fee as of October 2020. Amazingly, it's now been a full year since I first applied for my Platinum Card from American Express — and what a year it's been! That sentiment is both sarcastic and non-sarcastic as...

Money at 30: Vital Card Review - What You Need to Know

Ultimately, as concerning as it may look at first glance, I have no qualms about Vital Card's proposed concept and think it could be a hit. Moreover, since all that is currently required to sign up is an e-mail address, I really don't see any harm in giving it a shot at this juncture.
