Thrifty Thursday: Cash Back Card

Many years ago, Mike and I got our first credit cards. We selected a rewards card for students that worked pretty well for us. Fast forward almost 7 years, we were still using the same credit card. It wasn't a bad card, but our rewards choices were pretty limited and weren't exactly the best deals on the market. We decided it was time to find an adult credit card.

After a lot of research, we decided we wanted to get a cash back card. That led us to either the Discover card or the Chase Freedom Visa card. There are still many places that don't accept Discover cards, so we decided on the Chase Freedom card. It gives us 1% cash back on all of our purchases and each quarter, certain things are 5% back. Right now, gas purchases give us 5% back. Every little bit helps with how expensive gas is! We got a $100 bonus for signing up and our cash back is quickly racking up!

Do you have any great thrifty tips? I'm always looking for ways to save!
