Over the last 10+ years, credit card rewards have earned my wife and I thousands of dollars in free money — in the form of cash, gift cards, and travel — just for buying the stuff we would have bought anyway.
It’s not hard. We just put as much of our spending as possible on credit cards, and strategically sign up for new ones with attractive bonus offers.
And because we pay our balance in full every month, it’s all been at 0% interest.
Some say banks and credit card companies are evil.
I think they’re awesome.
You just have to be smart about how you use them.

pretty good match, I am going to look into the travel and airline cards. good to know that Chase is a great card, love their rewards, thanks so much--you have a beautiful family
Unfortunate. He should have gone through the 'true' percentage cash back equivalent of the top few cards which are worth it. Additionally, he should summarize the few credit cards which are worth it because of the sign-on bonus. I know a lot about credit cards and I just signed up out of curiosity. One major component of credit cards is that you can translate their cash back into percentages and then compare easily. In this way, you'll find that many credit cards simply aren't worth it. For example, if you have Bank of America and over $100k in your bank account, you can just get the Travel Rewards card... You'll earn an equivalent of 2.625% on each purchase. And you could supplement this with the Bank of America Cash Rewards card, which will give you 5.25% cashback on Restaurants or Gas (up to $2.5k in spending per quarter). Additionally, You'll get 3.5% on Groceries (up to $2.5k in spending per quarter counting the spending from the 5.25% category as well) and 1.75% on all other purchases. Similarly, if you don't have that kind of cash, and you only want one card, you can get the Citi 2% cash back card. You can also get the Discover Double card or the Chase Freedom - both cards have 3 categories each quarter where you'll earn 5%. This is a good approach if you're willing to have more than one card. Also, the Uber credit card is worth it if you want to earn 3% cashback on Travel and 3% on dining. Additionally, currently you can also earn 5% on spending in Uber Eats. Similarly, for paid credit cards, the Chase Sapphire Reserve is worth it for some people depending on spending. The perks of the above cards make the majority of other cards worthless 'unless' you are simply after the sign on bonus. The sign up bonus is not something I chase but others do. For people with little credit history, getting credit cards and cancelling can impact your credit score a fair amount. Also, the instructor said that credit card spending can move your score only 3 points which is incorrect. My utilization went for 10% or so to almost 0% recently and it caused a 10-20 point increase in my score. The impact of these factors can vary from person to person.
