Heck, I did that when buying TIRES! I live in Central CA and visit family/friends in the LA area. I wanted to buy tires at a good price, reputable dealer, with outlets in LA. Checked Costco prices for what I needed (VERY low mileage on my car, the tires rot from heat/cold before they wear out) and saved about $150.
Amazing that people don’t check things.
Wouldn’t mind peoples’ opinions on the following regarding our upcoming European vacation:
We don’t really travel enough for miles to matter, so we’re a bit averse to annual fees, but if the rewards are good enough for our non-extravagant use, we’d consider it.
- I’m getting the USAA pin-and-chip MC. The “old” MC will expire upon activation of this one. Low FTF, but still....
- I’ll open a second checking with USAA, with a limited balance, with an ATM card on it--no/low charge/reimbursed if using BANK ATMs.
- Get a 0% FTF card. I’ve read BofA is no longer an option. CSP still is, I believe. Others? Capital One?
-- Considering the lesser of the Barclaycard World MC; lesser reward but no fee and still get FICO if we want it. We mostly use our Amex Optima Plat, so this might not get much use.
