 3. How To Get Maximum "Cash Back" 

Don't Settle For Inferior Rewards.  When you buy anything with a credit card, make sure you get 2% to 5% cash back using a rewards credit card.  Don't settle for a paltry 1% or 1.5% as many Americans do -- why let the credit card companies keep all that money?!

If You Carry A Balance...  Instead of paying high interest rates, get a card that lets you transfer balances and pay 0% interest for fifteen months.  Of course, the card company hopes you'll use it enough to pay them a lot of money in the long run.

Another idea is to call your credit card company and ask for a rate reduction (it's more likely to work than you might think.)  You can also reduce rates by using a home equity loan, a debt management program, your 401(k) plan, your life insurance policy, or kindly relatives.

Are You Getting Your Fair Share?

When you use a credit card, the credit card company gets a fee of up to 3% from the merchant -- a cost that is of course passed on to you the customer.  If your rewards card pays less than 3%, you're sending free money to the credit card company!
