Sometimes nothing really makes sense. We have have our entire lives tried to throw out heavy change when we have it in our pockets being one of the main reasons we have switched to credit cards. Now there is a battle brewing over who has the heaviest credit card. Pretty soon if they get any heavier you will need a trainer to carry around the weights. These cards are definitely cool to look at but I am not so sure I want to carry too many of these around in my wallet just to show off. I would much rather use Apple Pay and get the transaction over with. Heavy seems to be the new Black with some card owners who love to show off their credit card fashion before it all goes digital.
Plastic credit cards normally weigh around 5g while the heaviest of luxury cards starts out at 28g. Some of these are made with plastic and some of metal.
#1: Chase Ritz Carlton weighs 28g with a heavy annual fee of $450. You at least get some elite benefits and possible free hotel nights to keep your heavy card inside. (more…)

Postmates is currently rolling out a new rewards program which will make it more competitive compared to Grubhub and Door You will receive an email that states “You’ve been selected to try Postmates Rewards. It’s our brand new, invite-only loyalty program. Best of all, it’s free!
To sign up, just open your iOS or Android app. Each purchase you make after that will count towards your rewards (it could be free delivery, it could be a boat—the sky’s the limit).” You’ll also get a stamp card to track your progress in-app! We are excited they have added this new program.
New Yorkers have always had the convenience of hailing a cab easily for the most part and never really a need for someone in Manhattan to have rideshare as much as someone living in Houston or Miami. Now they are even more spoiled and so spoiled now with ride share apps that you really don’t even have to take the subway as much with apps like Via. Black is definitely becoming the new Yellow and this is not a trend. You even see less yellow cabbies on the streets now that Uber has dominated the market. Black is the new yellow. With over 15,000 black and luxury cars operating in the five boroughs compared to around 13,500 medallion cabs it is unstoppable. First we hated cabs that overcharged with steep prices but now as Uber and Lyft are charging outrageous surge rates we always need as many alternative apps as we can fit on our phone for a ride.
Uber ($20 off), Lyft ($50 off), Gett and Via are the top NYC taxi alternatives and we also found some newbies.
Gett ($50 off) -Gett looks to become the new ride-sharing game-changer with absolutely no ”
surge pricing.” They are known to offer $10 for any ride in Manhattan south of 110th Street which is a relative bargain also if your trip rings in under that threshold then you pay the lower price. Tips can be pre-set for zero percent to 20 percent. The driver waits for free for three minutes, and you’ll be charged $1/min after that. An extra stop costs $5. Best yet, there’s no surge pricing—ever. You can pick from Gett Standard, Gett Premium, Gett SUV, and Gett Deal where you have drivers Active in 30-plus cities (Tel Aviv, London, and Moscow included), Gett, which used to go by GetTaxi, arrived in NYC in 2013, though its recent $10 deal has raised its profile along with the new $50 off offer. According to CNBC, it has a fleet of over 2,000 vehicles serving NYC.
March 2017 Update: We changed the promo offer above for $50 off. Get $5 off your next 10 rides which is $50 in value. Gett has also added firm quotes that will now include taxes along with the upfront pricing they had already provided with No ranges or estimates. Tolls, surcharges, and optional tip aren’t included.
April 29, 2017 Update: On-demand ride service Gett confirms acquisition of Juno
The competitive landscape for transportation apps has become a little smaller today. Gett has announced that it has acquired Juno, a rival in the New York market. The ride-hailing industry just got a whole lot more interesting with Uber (Goliath) vs Lyft (David) no longer being the big players in town. A third and very credible player is suddenly in the picture with this merger. Gett has the support and a $300 million investment from the world’s largest automaker, Volkswagen. Gett already has a presence in 100 cities in Europe. This move positions them to establish a competitive United States presence beyond their current footprint in New York City.
30% Off Rides with Juno – currently in “beta” but that is a GOOD THING. They are preparing to disrupt the New York City ride share app market currently dominated by Uber and Lyft. Juno just launched a beta app which gives 30% off rides + no surge fees in New York City (that’s 30% off of Uber’s prices using our link). This was my favorite app to use while in NYC because it was the cheapest without being restricted to certain areas. I could hail a Juno from a restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen and ride over to the 9/11 Memorial or to Central Park without having to pay the higher prices the other apps charge.
March 2017 Update: Juno rideshare just announced they will be offering rides as of now at JFK and LGA airports. You also get the beta discount of at least 10% off Uber on these rides and 30% off the first two weeks with our link! If you refer friends you get 30% off Rides for an additional two weeks.
Via – Considered an On-Demand Transit which is basically an alternative to the subway with carpooling which seems to really be catching on in the NYC area. If you sign up with my code, dj9i7, we’ll both get $10 of free Via Credit. You can download the app here. It’ll only cost $2.25 more than the subway and you can avoid waiting in the hot subway stations this summer. While it’s dirt cheap to use Via it is a bit awkward with others in the car if you are used to taking private cars. It also does not run after midnight for those of you going out for late night fun in the city that never sleeps.
Trim is a free service that offers automated statement credits to your Visa credit or debit card when you connect your card, activate cashback coupons via Facebook Messenger, and make qualifying purchases on your card at participating retailers or in select shopping categories. It not only monitors your credit cards but your bank accounts to help cut down on unnecessary bills or overpaying.
Save up to $40 in Bonus Statement Credits
You can earn $40 in bonus statement credits on your everyday purchases when you sign up for Trim. After linking your Visa card you get a grocery offer then after activating that offer in Facebook Messenger they send two more offers. Here are some example offers:
- Spend $5 or more at any U.S. grocery and get $1 back. Can be repeated up to ten times for a total savings of $10. Expires 7/3/17. Tip: You could charge this on a card that is paying a quarterly 5% cashback bonus to double up on the rewards. Chase Freedom Visa is paying a 5x Bonus on Grocery stores during this quarter.
- Spend $5 or more at any U.S. restaurant and get $1 back. Can be repeated up to ten times for a total savings of $10. Expires 7/3/17.
- $10 Back On $50+ Grocery Purchases
- Spend $20 or more at any U.S. movie theater and get $10 back. Expires 8/31/17.
How To Activate Trim Savings
1. Head over to Trim to Sign-Up!
2. Click “Savings” under the Menu in your Trim account and register your Visa credit card or Visa debit card with Trim Savings. Tip: We recommend using a credit card over debit cards for any purpose.
3. Once you register, Trim Savings will offer you cashback coupons via Facebook Messenger.
4. Activate the cash back coupons that you want to use via the “Activate” button on Facebook Messenger.
5. After you’ve Activated the offers, you simply use your Visa card to make qualifying purchases.
6. Once you’ve made a qualifying purchase, the statement credits will be automatically applied to your Visa card account.
Trim Remembers To Cancel “Free Trials” So You Don’t Get Charged
While some may love the bonus incentives to use Trim they offer some possibly really helpful services as well. Trim also helps you cancel unwanted Credit Card Subscriptions. If you are like me you sign up for tons of “free trial offers” such as Netflix and Hulu then lose track of all the subscription services that are registered with what promotion. Trim can easily find and cancel unwanted credit card subscriptions. Trim finds all the subscriptions on your credit card or debit card such as Amazon Prime or Google Play renewing then sends you a list of them in a text message and then cancels the ones you don’t want.
Save on Your Cable Bill
Trim is offering an exclusive Comcast cost-cutting service. Perhaps, this will keep you from cord-cutting if you save money with your cable bill. Trim will monitor your Comcast bill and use chat to get reductions. They basically negotiate your rate and you pay 25% of the first bill’s reductions so if they save you $10 per month then you’ll pay $2.50. That certainly beats calling into the cable service but we recommend you do that every 6 months or so anyway no matter what the hassle to get deeper discounted rates or promotions. We hope they expand to include Spectrum and other cable providers such as Cox Communications.
Statement Credits for Targeted Visa Transactions
Trim also offers a card link program as part of Visa Trial Link. When you link your Visa card with Trim, you’ll get targeted cash back offers in the form of a statement credit. This works with Visa cards only. Any account linked in Trim with the bank login should automatically be part of the card-link program (without inputting the card numbers) managed exclusively via Facebook messenger.
Should I Share My Login and Credit Card Information with Trim? Is it Safe?
The Login you give them is actually converted to a token where Trim only gets read-only access to your transaction data. They cannot move money or make any changes to your account. You can revoke their read-only access token at any time. They also use 256-bit SSL encryption for their website and all server-side databases using Amazon Web Services (AWS), a secure online data storage and hosting service that is used by the Department of Defense, NASA, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). They have stated that your data on our servers will never be accessed or used by any other party and they will not sell your data or use it in any way without your permission.
As a credit card and frugal nerd I am more than excited to give this service a go. I am not worried about sharing login information as I will be using a credit card that is not connected to a bank account. I will most likely use my Capital One Visa and Chase Freedom cards. My only worries are that this program will interfere with Rewards Network or Shell Fuel Rewards in which I get a big savings on my gas and that is much needed right now. I plan on testing this service out and seeing how it goes and writing more as I go along so make sure and bookmark this page or add us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
The Curb app formerly known as Taxi Magic is the most popular way to book taxi’s on demand in 60 cities across the U.S. With the Curb app you can book taxis from New Orleans to New York City in the U.S. and when traveling to Canada, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. They offer an alternative to on-demand ride share services that have surge pricing but remember cabbies regular rates are often more expensive. We recommend these as our #1 and #2 ride-sharing apps.
Curb is offering new users a free $5 credit toward your first ride, and you can earn additional $5 credits for referring your friends.
How To Get $5 New Curb User Credit:

3. Enter Referral Code o91l92 to receive $5 in Magic Credits added to your account instantly.
4. Complete the registration of your credit card with Curb.
2017 April Update: Curb finally launched a new and improved Curb app experience for booking and paying for your taxi rides. This was long overdue and a reason why we haven’t posted in over a year on this Uber Alternative because the old app was slow and unresponsive at times. This latest release includes a new look, time-saving features, and easier ways to choose your payment method. You can now provide special instructions for your driver right from the home screen something that Uber and Lyft could use. The best new feature is the “Pair & Pay” if you’re in a taxi, simply enter a 7-digit code and pay for a ride. The Pair & Pay is not available everywhere yet but they have worked hard to speed up this payment and it’s way faster than using the old credit card system that taxi’s are known to use. Make sure to update the app.

Sam’s Wholesale Club is a place I have shopped with my Dad since I was a kid. We would go there and pile up the cart full of a week’s worth of food and it was always exciting to me! My Dad uses his Sam’s Credit Card for all of his purchases. He swears by it as it gives him 2% cash back on his purchases but that card is no longer available and their current card offering is a 1% back card for purchases at Sam’s Club.
Normally Warehouse clubs do not earn your category 5% cash back or higher cash back. They are normally in the fine print to not earn anything and most clubs would not take all of the credit cards as they were exclusive. So warehouse clubs used to be where I would go to meet minimum spending requirements for a sign-up bonus and not really expect big cash back on a card but that has changed. This past year there has been a huge marketing ploy to get cardholders to switch over to Chase and Discover after the American Express shakeup at Costco. This is when Costco decided to partner with Citi Cards instead. Discover and Chase have been giving huge 5% back incentives for warehouse shoppers.
Sam’s Club is also offering a generous Cash Back Program on top of the cash back you can earn using a credit card. Sam’s Plus Members earn $10 in Cash Rewards for every $500 in qualifying pre-tax purchases during a membership year with a maximum reward of $500 per 12-month period. Cash Rewards are loaded onto the Sam’s Plus Member account about two months before the end of the membership year (award date).
If you are not yet a member of Sam’s Club you can join using this link and get a $20 e-gift card.
1. Discover it
Go Here: Discover it
Wholesale clubs are included in the 5X categories through June 30, 2017. It’s been this way for several months now so this has been our top card used at Sam’s Club. You can also get cash at the register up to $60 interest free. Yes, it works just like an ATM Machine but no fees.
With the 5X bonus categories, you can earn $75 cash back on up to $1,500 in purchases each quarter after you activate the bonus.
For new cardmembers Discover will match the cash back you’ve earned at the end of your first 12 billing cycles. So any purchases you made in the 5% bonus categories will get you 10% cash back!
2. Bank of America Cash Rewards
There are 2 no annual fee Bank of America cash back cards which include wholesale clubs as a bonus category. With the BankAmericard Cash Rewards Visa and MLB BankAmericard Cash Rewards card, you can earn 2% cash back at wholesale clubs on up to $2,500 in spending each quarter. You’ll also get a 10% bonus if you deposit your cash back into a Bank of America checking or savings account. If you redeem $50 cash back, you’ll get $55 in your bank account.
3. AMEX Starwood Cards
Go Here: Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express
With the AMEX Starwood card, you’ll earn 1 point per $1 spent at Sam’s Club. But for every 20,000 Starwood points you transfer to airline partners (with a 1:1 transfer ratio), you’ll earn 5,000 bonus miles. That means every $1 spent on the AMEX Starwood cards is worth up to 1.25 airline miles!
Plus, AMEX Starwood cards give you access to AMEX Offers. I recently got an amazing deal on my American Express Blue Cash card where the AMEX Offer was 20% back on purchases of $100+. I purchased $500 in Sam’s Gift Cards with this offer and got $100 back.
4. Citi Double Cash
You can earn up to 2% cash back at Sam’s Club with the no annual fee Citi Double Cash card. You’ll earn 1% cash back on every purchase, and another 1% cash back when you make payments, as long you meet the minimum payment on your monthly statement. You can redeem cash back rewards for a mailed check, a statement credit, or for gift cards, when you reach $25 in rewards.
5. Chase Freedom Unlimited and Chase Freedom Card
Go Here: Chase Freedom
With the Chase Freedom Unlimited, you’ll earn 1.5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (1.5% cash back) per $1 you spend on all purchases with NO limit. Chase Freedom Visa also ran a 5% back category for warehouse clubs during the Holiday season and we bet they will again soon because Discover Card is continuing their promotion of this.
