Southwest credit card offers and My Quest of Juggling between my Family and My Job

About a year ago, I was scouted for a great job opportunity that I simply could not pass up. The only problem was that I had to leave home. Since it was the middle of the school year, we decided that I would go ahead while my wife and kids would finish the school year. Needless to say, I didn’t much like the idea of not being with my family and quickly realized that I needed to get home at least every weekend. One of my new co-workers suggested that I look into Southwest credit card offers so that I could earn something while flying back and forth so often. Since Southwest offered the best flights for me, I looked into the cards and quickly discovered that the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Card was perfect. To start with, I received two points for every $1 spent on Southwest Airlines and AirTran when I purchased the tickets directly from the airline. Using Southwest’s online booking tool is fast and easy, so it was never a problem to earn my bonus […]

Gas Discounts: Cash Versus Credit

This past week I spent time up in Michigan with my family.  I drove there, and of course had to stop a few times to get gas.  There were a few things I noticed over the different places I observed gas prices.  For one, it was cheaper to buy gas when I left on Saturday, May 28 in the South versus anywhere else I saw.  While in Michigan over the week, I noticed the gas prices jumping to $4.19 a gallon! Ridiculous.  I thought gas prices were supposed to go down. Another thing I hate about getting gas in Michigan is that there’s a different price for cash versus credit.  Where I live, this option does not exist, and I am so glad!  I use a gas rewards credit card to earn money back on each gas purchase, so when there’s a difference of ten cents a gallon less when you pay cash, it kills me!  I can’t help but think I could be getting the gas cheaper if I was strictly paying cash.  Of course, if I calculate it, […]
