Question of The Day

Is Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check worth the investment?

  • Yes!
  • Don’t get TSA Pre-Check, make sure to get Global Entry as it covers TSA Pre-Check as well

Cards & Points

How to hit minimum credit card spends?


  • Put your personal bills on your credit cards
  • Don’t spend more than you currently do if possible
  • Pre-pay bills
  • You can go the route of getting gift cards, but this is a dying strategy
  • Use a service such as Plastiq to pay bills that don’t take credit cards
