Pay Rent With Credit Cards and Earn Big Rewards

If you rent an apartment, the largest expense in your monthly budget is most likely your rent.  So would you put your rent on a credit card if you could?  If you plan to pay off your balance each and every month, the answer to this question is hopefully a resounding yes!

That said, it's estimated that 70 percent of renters still pay their rent via paper check in the United States.  More and more landlords are accepting credit cards each year though, and renters are quickly jumping on the bandwagon in order to maximize credit card rewards.

Why Pay Taxes with a Credit Card?

Do you have a friend who always brags about how big he expects his tax refund to be and what he plans to spend it on? I do.

Every year I bite my tongue as I listen to him go on and on about the huge check he’ll be getting from Uncle Sam and how he’s already spent the money on a new toy of some sort. I just have to nod my head and say, “Great man, great. I’m really happy for you.”

Think Twice Before Paying Taxes with Your Credit Card

Tax time is upon us yet again, which means many of you will be scrambling over the next few weeks to get your tax returns done and cut a check to old Uncle Sam.

However, in recent years the IRS has made it fairly easy to ditch the checkbook and pay your tax bill via credit card.  In many cases you may even be able to deduct the convenience fee card companies charge to process electronic tax payments.  So why should you think twice before paying your tax bill with plastic and racking up extra credit card points or miles?

Credit One Bank® Unsecured Visa® Credit Card Review: The Pros & Cons

Ever since Orchard Bank credit cards got the axe from Capital One years ago, many consumers with poor credit have been looking to the Credit One Bank Unsecured Visa Card instead. Let's face it, there unfortunately aren't many credit card options left on the market for those with poor credit. And if you prefer to use an unsecured credit card over a secured credit card, your options are even more limited!

Infographic: How to Make a 0% Interest Credit Card Balance Transfer

Credit card debt that just keeps on growing is often a product of the high interest consumers are stuck paying on existing balances. Wouldn't it be great if you could just rid yourself of the additional 10, 20 or 25% in interest and start paying down your debt directly?

(The answer is: 'Obviously')

Leaving Monthly Balances Won't Boost Credit Scores

You've probably had friends tell you how they established their credit history faster by leaving monthly balances on credit cards instead of paying balances in full. I hope you didn't fall for this one!

The truth is this happens to be one of the most common credit myths out there, so make sure you talk some sense into your friends the next time you hear it, OK? A consumer who carries a revolving credit card balance each month simply will not establish credit any faster than someone who pays the balance in full.

Don't Sweat the Soft Inquiries

A soft inquiry is recorded on your credit report when an existing creditor reviews your file, a prospective creditor pulls your report for marketing purposes, or you order your own credit report for monitoring purposes.

A common misconception is that these inquiries or soft pulls impact your credit score, but the truth is they have no effect at all.  That's right - absolutely zero effect!
