Citi Double Cash Card Review

It’s not very often that a new credit card product comes out, let alone a new credit card that’s completely different from all other credit card offers available. But Citi has done just that with the release of their newest credit card, the Citi® Double Cash Card. I was able to speak with some of the brains behind this product and was pleased to hear the catalyst behind this was none other than the consumer itself. This product was developed after a lot of one-on-one interaction with existing credit card owners-whether it be Capital One, American Express, or Citi- in…

Have you noticed that almost all of the major thefts of confidential financial data are happening in the U.S. and not in Europe? A few years ago, Americans were not really targeted any more than people in other industrialized countries.

The card is tied to United Airlines, so it is appropriate for those who travel with that particular carrier or who want to earn points toward future travel served by United Airlines.

Changes Coming to Chase Sapphire Preferred

Chase Sapphire Preferred is consistently ranked very highly for customer service and praised for its rewarding menu of features and benefits. One small example that illustrates that customer-centric approach, for example, is that whenever calling the customer service number you will talk to a real person, never a voicemail type menu of computerized options. With the U.S. transitioning to PIN-and-chip cards, current Chase Sapphire Preferred cardmembers that have a card about to expire will receive replacement plastic that will come equipped with a “chip-and-signature” technology. That allows the card to be used where conventional magnetic strips are still in use,…
