I teamed up with American Express this month for my giveaway.
By team up, I mean I went to CVS and bought a gift card.
I myself carry an American Express because I’ve noticed rich people carry American Express and it’s the only way I’m ever going to get close to feeling like a rich person.
Although one time I did use my American Express to treat myself to a vacation in Brazil. I felt rich for about a month. Then the bill came. Then I felt like the biggest dipshit.
Live and learn. That’s my motto. Sadly, I never learn the first time. Ask American Express.
Can we talk about the point system on these credit cards? Why is it… I can spend $300 on a flight back to Ohio. I don’t even know how many points I get for that. Maybe 300 points, if that? I do know however, if I want to use my points to fly back to Ohio, I need like 80,000 points. Is this what’s considered a racket?
Remember back in the day, and yes I am old, when people went shopping on Wheel of Fortune. It was like, “I’ll take the pack of gum for $400 and the toenail clippers for $750”. That’s how I feel the point system works on credit cards.
As much as I joke about using my credit cards it’s not a joke as to how many times I’ve had to dig myself out of that debt. That’s never been fun. Working two damn jobs as a grown old man.
Did you know the average American owes an average of $15,000 in credit card debt? That is a scary statistic. Did you also know that 87% of American’s believe all statistics? Even scarier.
Being signed up here at Gus Baldwin with your chance of winning a $25 gift card from American Express shows that you are taking responsibility and control of your future financial situation. I applaud you and appreciate you.
