A couple of weeks ago I announced a new resource page: How to increase credit card spend. One of the many techniques listed there is to use prepaid cards. Specifically, the idea is to buy Visa or MasterCard gift cards and use them, as debit cards, to reload prepaid cards in-store. This is a process that we receive many questions about, so we (by “we”, I mean Shawn) created a page that should help to answer many of the most basic questions:
- Beginner’s guide to buying & liquidating Visa & Mastercard gift cards (also found in the Gift Cards menu on this site)
Also, as a follow-up to the page showing how to increase credit card spend, I’ve added a new page listing many ways to increase credit card rewards (you know, portals and such). With a little forethought it should be possible to average considerably more than 2 points per dollar. See:
- How to increase credit card rewards (also found in the Credit Cards menu on this site)
Long time readers probably won’t learn much new from these two new resources, but they should be handy for those starting out and/or looking for a refresher.
