Boost Your Credit Card IQ
If you use credit cards in a intentional way, you can free up some valuable perks. We geek out on strategies to make credit cards work for you, without getting out of control on spending.

- Use credit cards that have the best rewards on the things you spend the most money on.
- Protect your credit score: Always pay off your balance, don't spend more than 30 percent of your limit, don't cancel a card you've had for a long time.
