How to Make Money by Using Your Credit Card

This article will explain how to get the most out of cash back credit cards. Many people assume that credit card usage is a negative thing, but it is actually possible to make money from properly using your cash back credit cards. By following a few steps such as understanding how to properly use a cash back credit card and making on-time payments on your card, you too will be able to start making money from your credit card.

Credit cards can be a blessing or a curse.  Many Americans today hate credit cards and have found themselves in more credit card debt than they can imagine.  There is a growing trend, however, towards those who like credit cards and have discovered that by properly using credit cards, you can actually make money from the credit card companies while also increasing your credit score.

1.  Understand that in order to properly make money from credit cards, you have to use them the same way you would use cash.  The only way to make money by using your credit card is to never pay interest fees or annual fees.  If you use your credit cards in the same way that you would use cash, then you should never have to pay any interest fees.  

2.  Shop around for the best cash back credit card.  In order to make the most money from your credit card, you will need to shop around for the best cash back credit card.  Forget looking at rewards credit cards that give you points, trips, goods, or have annual fees.  Your best bet in making money from your credit card is to find a credit card that has no annual fees and gives the highest percent back of cash back on everyday purchases.  

3.  Only use your credit card for purchases you would regularly make and already have the money for.  Do not use your credit card simply to get the cash back at the end of the month or you will go into credit card debt.  If you would regularly purchase an item and already have the money in the bank for it then go ahead and use your credit card for the item.  If you wouldn’t purchase it normally, then don’t purchase it now just because you have a cash back credit card.

4.  Pay off your credit card immediately every month (or more if you can!).  By paying off your balance in full every month you will ensure that you never pay a late fee or any interest on your credit card.  This will help you to get the most money back possible from your credit card company.

5.  Request a check from the credit card company every few months.  Once you have spent a few months using your credit card and paying the full balance off each month go ahead and request a check from the credit card company.
