Credit Karma Tips & Resolutions 2014 — Part 5
12 Comments |
To celebrate the new year, we asked the Credit Karma team to share any resolutions they were making or tips they had to get one’s finances into shape in 2014. We got a lot of great responses and decided to share them in a week-long series on Facebook. Now we’re sharing them with you, along with our thoughts!
Stan actually requested to expand on his tip, so here’s more information in his own words. And be sure to check out some of our other blog posts on this subject!
Most people know about Rental Car Insurance that you can get with credit cards. However, I encourage you to carefully read the promotional literature to learn about the other useful fringe benefits:
- Purchase, Return, and Event Ticket Protection, plus Travel Accident and Baggage Insurance are included with most American Express charge cards. (American Express is a Credit Karma advertising partner.)
- Purchase Protection, Return Guarantee and Flight Accident and Baggage Delay Insurance are some of the useful Discover Card perks.
- Price Protection, Accident and Trip Cancellation Insurance and Lost Luggage Reimbursement come with any World MasterCard.
- Purchase Security, Lost Luggage Reimbursement and Travel Accident Insurance are offered with any Visa Signature card.
Many individual banks add additional benefits, like Citi Price Rewind and Cell Phone Protection on selected cards. Discover and Capital One don’t charge foreign transaction fees on any of their cards, which can save you up to 3% whenever you travel abroad.
It is really worthwhile to spend some time to learn about all of these extra features!
