4 Ways to Make Your Credit Card Company Pay You
If you've got a credit card, maybe you just accept that paying interest and carrying a balance is the American way. But paying hundreds of dollars in interest to your credit card issuer each year doesn't have to be a way of life.
If you have a rewards credit card and use it responsibly, you can earn credit card rewards while avoiding paying interest on an account that's fully managed by your card's bank.
Obviously, if you've already got credit card debt, pay that off before you apply for a new rewards card, since the last thing you want to do is add more debt to your life.
