UPGRD 96: Travel Credit Cards


We revisit a popular topic in this week's frequent traveler podcast: some of the better travel credit cards and your credit score. We're joined by Stefan to talk about:

  • How your credit score is calculated
  • What effect inquiries have on your score
  • Whether to apply for multiple cards on the same day, and
  • We discuss some of the current best offers for cards for frequent travelers

We only scratched the surface of many common credit card questions. What questions do you have for a future episode?

Glad to see you're back "on the air"...are any of the others returning? Enjoyed the FA podcast.

Thanks David. We're starting out slow with the original podcast for now. But definitely working on figuring out a realistic schedule to add some more podcasts at some point.

Thanks. My only criticism is the horrid quality of you audio and the background noises on some of the discussions. Thought I heard a child playing and screaming in one, very fuzzy hissing background on another.

@David, yep, we're aware of it and working on it.

hello! I wanted to echo what David said, I am so glad you are back podcasting!! There are no quality podcasts out there on the material you cover, and I am so happy you are back. Keep up the excellent work!

Uh guys? Just when you were getting back, you left again?
