“New year, new me” is a popular phrase often heard as we say goodbye to 2021 and set our sights on what we want to accomplish in the year ahead.
For many people, that means making New Year’s resolutions to improve certain areas of their lives. Unfortunately, research shows that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by the second week of February.
However, with a bit of strategic planning, you can make your resolutions stick this year. Whether you want to get fit, eat healthier, travel more or save money, here are a few credit tips to help you crush your goals.
Improve Your Fitness
Let’s face it, the holidays have come to an end and it’s time to get back to (or start) a regular exercise routine.
Keep the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card from Chase in mind as it offers 5% back on fitness apparel and equipment purchases with an eligible Prime membership. There’s no better way to stay on top of your fitness game than looking good in new workout gear.
The holidays are a great time to kick back on the couch, snack on goodies and watch Christmas movies. But if you’ve gained a few extra pounds celebrating the season, weight loss might be on your list of resolutions.
No worries for you because the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card from Chase also offers 5% back when you shop for healthy groceries at Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market.
Now, how many people do you know get rewarded for eating healthy?
All year long you wish you’d reserved more time to get away from the daily grind. Besides, life is too short to stay in one spot, so traveling more is definitely on your agenda for 2022.
With $0 foreign transaction fees and bonus points for airfare and hotel purchases, the Chase Sapphire Preferred®️ Card is a great companion to help you explore the world.
Also consider The Platinum Card®️ from American Express as it offers a yearly statement credit of $200 when you book with select hotel brands.
Grow Your Savings
If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing better than seeing a little extra cash stashed away in your bank account.
If you want to build on that amount, Chase Ultimate Rewards®️ can help you reach your savings goals faster with the “pay yourself back” feature that allows you to receive a statement credit on one or more of your eligible purchases. Capital One has a similar feature where you can earn rewards and redeem them for cash.
