Re: New Amazon Prime card, no annual fee, 5%(!) back on Amazon purchases

Pretty decent cash back, but limited use. Why not just use a 5-6% grocery store CC to buy Amazon gift cards instead? A fair point. Especially when some grocery stores with "fuel rewards" programs often offer double or quadruple points on gift cards. For me it is convenience of never havin...

Re: Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card

I already have the Amazon 3% Visa and am a paid Prime subscriber, can I just get 5% back with my existing card or do I have to open another card?

Re: Kansas City trip advice

It's great to see the WWI museum recommended. Unfortunately I didn't even know about the museum until I was passing through the area for work. I was able to get through the main museum and the outbuildings/tower in about 6 hours back in 2013. A very well done smaller museum. They have various discou...

Re: Too "old" to rent a car?

I have no experience with this myself. After a quick search of the Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz websites, I could find no reference to maximum age in the US. Budget's website specifically states that they do not have a maximum age in the US, but may have "upper-age" restrictions in other ...
