How We Helped You This Year
We’re getting into the busy shopping season with Black Friday & Cyber Monday around the corner. One of the easiest ways to support this site is by using our Amazon or eBay affiliate links (they are in the side bar of every post as well). If you thought we’ve helped you this year, please consider using our links. Just keep in mind that you can get cash back by using a shopping portal for these purchases (but then you won’t be support this site, but that’s ok!), best rates for eBay here & best rates for Amazon here.
A lot of the content on this site can be found elsewhere (although I do think we do a better job of presenting that information), but there were two times this year where I think we really helped readers:
- We warned you that the Chase 5/24 rule would be going into effect on business cards & co-branded cards well in advance. This should have given people plenty of time to get cards that they wouldn’t have otherwise been able to get. We also knew what cards were/weren’t affected by this new rule on co-branded cards when it was introduced.
- We told you that you had until August 28th to get Citi credit cards under the old rules. The new rules started appearing on cards on August 11th, so this again gave people a chance to get cards under the old rules before the new rules went into place.
Writing new content (and keeping old content up to date) is fairly time consuming, but it’s something I really enjoy doing (as does Chuck & Don). If you found the site helped you this year, consider using our shopping links. Also feel free to share how this site helped you this year in the comments, it would be great to get some testimonials from readers!
