Does the Apple Card Belong In Your Wallet? (2022 Review)

In 2019, Apple announced what many had suspected: it was releasing its own credit card. While Goldman Sachs would be the ones actually issuing the product, the card would combine the user-friendly tech and stylish aesthetic that the company’s cult has grown accustomed to. Then the Apple Card arrived — and so, naturally, I had to get one for myself. I’ll admit that my interest in Apple Card came more...

Money at 30: Capital One SavorOne Rewards Credit Card Review

As I look through my wallet and the credit cards I use most often, I realize that I've neglected to formally review one of my favorites: the Capital One SavorOne Rewards card. Sure, I've mentioned it in plenty of previous posts (including my annual "personal credit card strategy" articles), but I've failed to give it its due in terms of a full-fledged guide of its own. Let me correct that...

Obsessed With Metal Credit and Debit Cards? You Are Not Alone

Here's a fun experiment you can try the next time you're on Instagram: look for an ad featuring a credit card and see if there's a comment reading something to the effect of, "Is it metal?" Yes, these days one of the star features of a credit card product has little to do with finance and more to do with material as metal cards have been all the rage among...

Money at 30: Using My American Express Airline Incidentals Credit

Over the past two years, I've loved using the benefits that my American Express Platinum Card has afforded me. In fact, said perks have also evolved in just the past couple of years, with some temporary additions coming in 2020 and a big overhaul arriving just a few months ago. Yet, amid these changes, one of the card's more complicated features has remained: the airline incidentals credit. To catch you...

What’s Going On With the Uber Credit Card?

A few years back, I got my first new credit card in probably a decade. Since that momentous occasion, I’ve received numerous credit card offers in the mail and have proceeded to throw them in the trash each and every time. I didn’t get any such mailing regarding the Uber Visa card when it launched in November 2017 but I did see it plastered all over the Internet. While, like...

Money at 30: Venmo Credit Card Overview

Last year, following a few months of teasing, the Venmo Credit Card made its grand debut. With a novel reward structure, bright-colored card designs, and app integration, the card made a bit of splash. However, in the time since that announcement, the card itself had only been offered to select users. Well, that was until this past week when Venmo seemingly opened the credit card to all current customers. Now...

American Express Gold (and Rose Gold) Card Review

In September of 2019, I leaped into the world of premium rewards cards when I applied for the American Express Platinum card. During the following months, I continually looked at the American Express Gold card as a potential companion to my newly-acquired card, but eventually disabused myself of that idea because I wasn't sure that I'd be able to make full use of its perks. Cut to this past fall...
