MONEY ADVICE FOR TRUCKERS. CLARK HOWARD IS AWESOME WHEN IT COMES TO MONEY ADVICE AND NOT GETTING RIPPED OFF.
There are so many websites now days that claim to be the expert on everything from Cell Phones to best credit cards. I've found that it's easy to google say "Best Credit Card for Travel" and you'll get a bunch of paid adds first then You'll get the smooth articles that were built by pro webmasters to give the article a high rating on google search engines. Unfortunately I've found that most of these articles are only trying to sell You the same stuff they are advising You about. i.e. It's not about helping You, it's about helping them. I used to listen to this guy Clark Howard on Sirius when I was over the road. His Mantra was "save more, spend less and avoid rip-offs." He was always answering questions from every day people about anything from Mortgage advice to how to find the best credit card (or which are the worst) I was looking for a better deal on a rewards card for travelers, credit card, and after spending an hour searching, and not finding anything that felt like a good deal, remembered Clark, and found his helpful website.Clark.com. Within 15 minutes I'd found what may be the best credit card for road trippers, travelers, and truckers. . ( I signed up for the Penfed Credit Card. Unfortunately it doesn't allow You to cash in your rewards points for cash AND charges you your points to use them to make purchases from thier list.) I prefer my Chase Rewards card. Because You can cash in your points for CASH.) So Clark was wrong on the Penfed card in my opinion. Updated 11-13-18
