With all the confusing credit card lingo and variety of options such as spending tiers, rotating reward categories, and redemption options, there is a chance a credit card can never really work out. You want to have the credit card be a tool to help you with your budget instead of costing you more money.

Before accepting an offer take a close look at the terms and educate yourself so that you are not tricked by a company.
