You can make a great living from your commute, but if you want to make it financially viable, it will take a little more than $50k in your pocket.
It’s a tough sell, but one that may soon change thanks to the arrival of new, free credit cards that allow people to take advantage of perks like free rides and free meals at local restaurants.
“Credit cards can make your life a lot easier,” says Chris Naylor, co-founder and chief marketing officer at TravelBuddy.com.
“They are a great way to help you save money.
They allow you to have a bit more freedom to spend your time.”
For instance, you can pay for a $20 Uber ride for the day by using a credit card or using your employer’s credit card to pay for the ride.
“When you are traveling, you want the ability to pay as you go,” says Naylor.
“That’s a great perk to have, and a lot of people are willing to take a ride or two if it means they get a bit of cash back.”
If you’re willing to spend some extra cash on food and lodging, you could also use a free ride to catch a movie or concert at the local cinema or restaurant.
That means you could use your $50 or $60 credit card and pay for that ride.
That could help you afford a hotel room or restaurant reservation.
You can also use your credit card at restaurants, but it will need to be used in person at the restaurant.
“I’d like to see restaurants pay the same amount of money per person per meal, and maybe even per person on a per person basis,” says Scott Taylor, an author and travel blogger.
If you don’t want to spend any cash, you may still find yourself spending money on the food you order, such as a $10 burger or a $12 plate of fries.
If the meal is not worth the cost, then you might want to look for other ways to pay the bills.
“If you can’t afford the food, it can be tough to make ends meet, especially if you are working,” says Taylor.
“You need to find ways to make the most out of your spending money.”
If your credit cards are getting you to do some extra spending, it may be worth it to upgrade your bank account.
You’ll save yourself from having to spend more, Taylor says.
“A credit card is going to help your budget and will give you the flexibility to spend on things you love,” he says.
The biggest advantage of credit cards over cash, though, is that they can help you avoid the problems that plague many Americans who live paycheck to paycheck.
“The card issuer can help with paying bills and things like that,” says Michael McBride, the founder of Cash-Free Money, which helps people make extra money.
“It’s great for making extra money, but when you’re going to spend money, it’s going to be harder and harder to pay.”
To make things easier for you, some of the best credit cards offer flexible spending options.
“Cash is a really great way for you to spend,” says McBride.
“For example, if you have a big credit card, you might have to go to the bank to make that $50-plus payment.
But the cash-free card will give that $25-plus back.
That way, you won’t have to worry about that.”
The other option is to just save money by not using your credit.
“With credit cards, you are not supposed to use your card,” says Tayler.
“But if you get a bad bill and don’t pay, it is actually more likely that you’ll lose money.”
With a cash-less life, you have more options.
You could take out a mortgage, for example.
“People are taking on more debt than ever before,” says Tracey Williams, founder of CreditBuddy, which offers credit card tips and recommendations.
“There is a whole world of credit card debt that’s not accounted for.”
Credit card debt can be avoided by using the free services that are available on the major credit card issuers.
“These are the kinds of services that people will use if they don’t have a credit score, and that is a great time to do it,” says Williams.
“Many of these credit card companies offer credit card management and other services that will help them manage their accounts, and they will offer some savings.”
But there are a few key points to remember when it comes to your credit score: Keep it clean.
It is important to keep your credit file clean, according to McBride; this will help you keep your accounts under control and keep your score at an acceptable level.
“Be honest with your credit report,” says Smith.
“Pay your bills on time and on time.
This will help prevent your credit from getting taken away.”
