Got this email from a reader and thought it was brilliant ;) Any others pull this trick?
“Last week I needed something notarized, but the corner Western Union only takes cash (it cost $1, no biggie) and I was straight up out of cash. Not even change in my cupholders.Even though USAA refunds all my ATM fees, I can’t stand giving ATMs a $3 surcharge on a $20 withdrawal.
Luckily there was CVS right across the street. I ducked in, bought a 12 oz can of Diet Coke for $0.89 and got $30 cash back from my debit card. No ATM fee surcharge, $30 cash and a cool, refreshing beverage on a hot summer day.
This might be especially helpful for people traveling this summer who will be away from their home banks.”
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
