Assuming you still have a credit card, you might not be getting the full use out of it. Most credit cards have certain perks that not everyone knows about.
I’m not talking about rewards and miles, I’m talking about things like never needing to purchase rental car insurance, automatic extended warranties, and price protection. There may be others, like roadside assistance, luggage protection, and trip cancellation coverage. To find out how your card is loaded up, just call up your credit card company and ask them to send you a one-sheet with their list of perks, like they’ve done over at the I Will Teach You To Be Rich blog. Sure, credit is evil, but if you’re going to dance with the devil, at least get to know the color of his underwear.
