5 Excellent No Annual Fee Cash Back Cards

Million Mile Secrets reader, Lindsay, tweeted:

I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred card, but would like to get a new card to earn cash back.  Do you have any recommendations?

Many folks like to pair their miles and points rewards cards with a cash back alternative.  Because it’s easy to redeem cash back rewards.  And it’s always nice to have a little extra cash in hand.

Although miles and points can be worth more depending on the award, the benefit of cash back rewards is they won’t fluctuate in value.  So you’ll always know what you’re earning!

My Review of Chase’s New (Free!) Credit Monitoring Service, Credit Journey

Knowing your credit score is important in the points & miles hobby.  And Chase has just launched Credit Journey, giving anyone (not just Chase cardholders) free access to an estimate of their TransUnion score.

So folks now have another free tool to help keep tabs on their credit!

That’s important, because having a higher score improves your likelihood of getting approved for credit.  So you can earn more sign-up bonuses. 😉
