3 Ways to Redeem Your Credit Card Rewards this Valentine's Day

Believe it or not, Valentine's Day is one of the absolute best holidays to redeem your credit card rewards on.

Why? Well for starters, it falls smack dab in the middle of the post-holiday/tax season hangover that is February. What that means is many of us are, well, "tapped-out" when it comes to disposable income.

5 Credit Cards with Annual Fees Worth Paying

If you're a regular on Creditnet, then you know that we've never been a big fan of annual fees. And who can blame us? With so many credit cards on the market today that skip the arbitrary once-a-year fee, why would you opt for a card that you have to pay to keep in your wallet? As it turns out, some of the most lucrative credit cards available require an annual fee. In some cases, paying the annual fee is well worth the benefits you'll enjoy as a cardholder, and the annual fee will pay for itself over the course of the year (and then some). However, these excellent annual fee credit cards can be hard to find, and their rewards hard to judge. So, we decided to introduce you to five credit cards with annual fees worth paying. In no particular order, these are the credit cards we would consider paying to keep in our wallet...

Why College Students Should Get a Credit Card

The debate over whether or not college students should own a credit card is certainly a sensitive one. Some would say it's simply madness for a college student – with so much temptation to spend, yet little financial literacy and no solid income – to have a student credit card.

Credit Card Rewards That Go Beyond Miles and Points...

A lot of us sign up for credit cards because we want some type of reward for our purchases; cash back, airlines miles, gas rebates cards, etc. And that's great - it's smart to get rewarded for the things you buy, anyways. However, a lot of us gloss over the many other benefits and perks you receive simply for becoming a cardholder, and odds are you might be missing out on some serious peace of mind.

Soaring Health Care Costs Increase Appeal of Medical Credit Cards

Medical professionals want to get paid up front for their services, but more and more people can barely afford to pay their regular monthly bills these days. So what’s the solution for health care expenses you can’t afford or overdue medical bills that are about to get sent to collection? Why not handle it the American way? Charge it! Just kidding. While this may be a superb deal for health care providers, it’s generally not the best option for consumers who will end up paying higher interest rates on medical expenses they already can’t afford – and ultimately end up in dire need of debt help.

Annual Fees: Pay Up or Move On?

I love credit cards that don't have an annual fee. Why? Because there isn't much that makes this credit card junkie happier than racking up rewards for nothing. Don't get me wrong. I carry plenty of cards with annual fees too, but the no annual fee credit cards are the ones that generally stick around in my wallet for the long run. Unfortunately, as credit card companies continue to face stricter government regulation and lost revenues, there's one thing they can always fall back on to increase their bottom lines—the mighty annual fee.  That's why millions of cardholders across the country have been receiving notices of new annual fees for cards that have always been considered "free" to use. Personally, I not only received notices of new annual fees, but I also watched several of the annual fees on my favorite rewards cards get jacked up by as much as $50 per year!
