You Might Be Surprised To See Me Recommend A Credit Card That Doesn’t Earn Miles Or Points
I’m a huge fan of miles and points (just in case you missed that theme around here). But, it’s not a perfect fit for everyone. I realized recently that I carry a card that doesn’t earn miles and points. And, I use it quite a bit.
