Summer Vacation Plans?

Do you have plans for your summer vacation?  Or are you still trying to figure out how you’ll pay for it?

Without careful planning, your summer vacation can end up costing you money for years and years!  Especially if you’re planning to use a credit card to pay for all or part of the expenses associated with a vacation, you might just want to take a good, hard look at ALL of your credit cards.

Are any of your credit cards rewards cards?  Could you use a rewards card to pay for gas, airline tickets, lodging while you’re on vacation?  And if you do use a rewards card, what will your actual reward be?  Is there a better reward card out there?

Do any of your credit cards offer a special rate for large purchases?  Maybe there’s an interest free option that you could take advantage of?  If not, is there a credit card that you could use that does offer introductory incentives like 0% interest?

What’s your current credit card interest rate?  Is there a better credit card with a better interest rate?  Maybe your credit score has changed for the better?  If so, you owe it to yourself to compare your current cards with other offers!

Once you’ve got your financing in order, and you see what you have to spend, then it’s much easier to plan a summer vacation!

Who knows… you might have more vacation options than you thought you did!
