This Week

This week on the site we covered a scary new Visa gift card scam that is both elaborate and potentially costly. We also covered Citi’s 60K checking account bonus, how Americans don’t like rewards cards and what it’s like to get enhanced screening via SSSS on a boarding pass.

To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!
