For years I’ve been suggesting credit cards to friends/readers without getting any sort of a bonus for them (occasionally select credit cards had “refer-a-friend” bonuses through which I referred people, though that was very rare). And sometimes I even got emails from readers wanting to sign up for credit cards I recommended, asking me if there’s a link they can sign up through that gets me some credit. I just sent them the way of other bloggers, figuring someone might as well get commission for them.
Well, much like a couple of other Boarding Area bloggers, I now have a page dedicated to the best credit card offers and have the ability to earn commission on select cards. Nothing else will change. This has all happened within the past week, and you’ll notice my suggestions for credit cards stay the same as they’ve been for months, including the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, American Express Premier Rewards Gold card, and Starwood American Express card (see my TravelSort post from a couple of months ago here).
I’ll keep the page on the right side of the blog updated with the latest offers, and when writing a post about a credit card I’ll throw in a link to the application.
I don’t expect anything else will change. Yes, I’ll keep making the same old posts, though if you’re signing up for a new credit card and weren’t going to sign up through someone else’s link, I’d certainly appreciate if you’d consider mine.
I promise two things:
a) To always disclose when I’m getting commission for a credit card link
b) To only put up a link through which I earn commission when it’s the best publicly available offer
If y’all help me out I’ll be able to move out of my mother’s basement in no time. 😉
