This week’s (un)lucky number is: Up to $500
The only person this is unlucky for are those friends who are about to get daily passive-aggressive pesterings from you. Some credit cards allow you to earn up to $500 if you can convince Joan to stop marathon-ing “Vampire Diaries” long enough to sign up. ’Tis the season to freeload off your friends.
These are the things to look forward to this week.
On a credit card far, far away: So you’re missing your company’s holiday party to go see “The Last Jedi” on Friday. I get that. But did you have to max out your credit card buying that Boba Fett mask signed by Jeremy Bulloch? Never fear, repair your credit, you will.
I won’t be home for Christmas:
Your mom got a new dog to fight her empty nest syndrome and he’s marking his territory. You mean to tell her you don’t want pee-covered presents? That Holiday Inn down the road is looking like a good option right about now and here are the best hotel cards to get you a good deal
. Your weird uncle is learning Russian and you suspect it may
be in anticipation of a mail-order bride from the way he is pronouncing люблю. Skip that hot mess altogether and book a last minute holiday trip on your miles and rewards
What you might have missed last week.
Even your finances want to snuggle: It’s cuffing season so you and your new boo want to do everything together. Sit on the same side of the booth (despite it being a one-person spot), kiss inappropriately long in coffee shops and even bank together. Here are a couple apps that can help you responsibly put your finances together and a few ways to double dip on your rewards (because their germs are your germs, right?).
