I’m Aaron Hurd, one of the foremost experts in credit cards, travel rewards, and loyalty programs. You might have seen one of the hundreds of articles I’ve written for places The Wall Street Journal, Time, Forbes, Nerdwallet, The Points Guy, Bankrate, Rolling Stone, and countless other publications. Or you may have run into me or seen me speak at an event like the Chicago Seminars, New York Times Travel Show, Fincon or Frequent Traveler University. Regardless of how you came to this site or where you are on your credit journey, welcome. 🙂

I launched this site because I saw a need to provide better information about credit cards and travel rewards. My goal is to build the best resource on the internet for you, whether your objective is to build your credit, put more cash in your wallet, better use your credit card benefits, or take your family on vacation.

Our promise to you is simple: We keep you, the reader, at the top of our priority list. We show you how to use your credit card rewards and benefits in ways that are relevant to you. And we have a little fun doing it.
