After that, I’m still going to review personal finance books, probably weekly, but not in a “series” like before. I also have one other really big and neat idea that I plan to start in December for a trial run – I think it’s a really cool idea, anyway. What is that one? You’ll have to wait until then to find out!

No More Free Money: Pulling The Plug On Credit Card Arbitrage Hot tip: applying for a lot of credit cards quickly is always bad. One thing credit card companies do is check how many times your report has been pulled recently and, no matter your score, if it’s been pulled a lot, they’ll either reject you or give you a low limit.
