Teaching the Basics of Personal Finance

Credit Cards- A Preview

I want to make sure this blog is comprehensive and covers most, if not all, aspects of personal finance, so I started with bank accounts. I’ve been itching to start this part of the blog since I started putting together this website, and at this point I think I’ve touched upon enough of the basics of both checking and savings accounts to get into the juicy stuff. I may revisit the topic at a later time.

So without further ado, let’s talk credit cards!

My idea for starting this blog originated after I started telling friends about the new credit card I had signed up for. There was a clear lack of knowledge of credit cards and credit scores.

I have many points to cover, and I think I’ll spread them out over many posts. That’s why I wanted to make this post a preview of the many points to come over the next couple weeks.

The topics will include:

  • Credit cards on college campuses
  • The idea of float
  • Picking a credit card
  • Rewards vs. cash back credit cards
  • Lesser known benefits of using a credit card
  • How to pay your credit card bill
  • What is a credit score?
  • How credit cards affect your credit
  • And more
    I am excited to share and discuss these topics in the coming weeks, so please check the blog regularly and leave questions, comments, and/or suggestions.
