I Fly Free & Get Paid To Have Sex

fly freeThere are a lot of people who don’t like credit cards for a variety of reasons. I am not one of those people. In fact, there are a lot of great reasons why I love my credit cards. These are the top five:

I Fly Free: One of the credit cards that I have is an airline affiliated credit card. This means that every time I spend money using that credit card I earn miles toward free tickets. I spend enough to earn a free ticket each year to fly round trip from Japan to the US.

I Get Paid To Have Sex: The other credit card that I have is one that pays me back 5% for every purchase that I make. Since it’s probably not appropriate for me to go into the details of my sex life here, it will suffice to say that birth control, sexy lingerie and other sex-related items all go on this credit card. In essence, I’m getting paid back 5% for having sex.

I Get To Gamble For Free: The money that I get refunded from the 5% cashback credit card is my poker night money. I use that money every Thursday night when the guys get together to play cards meaning that I am able to gamble for free.

I Get Free Beer: While I use the cashback reward to play poker with my buddies, rarely do I lose. That means that even after the gambling, I still have the cashback money plus more money I won at the poker table with it. Not wanting it to go to waste, I use it to buy beer meaning that I get to gamble and drink for free.

I Can Live A Riskier Life: Since my credit card gives me three months of replacement insurance on items that I purchase with it, I can use them in a riskier ways than if I didn’t use the credit card to purchase them. When I bought my new video camera, I had no problem leaning over the edge of the sailing boat near the waterline as we zipped across the San Francisco Bay because I knew if I accidentally dropped it, I could get a new one for free.

Of course, this is all dependent on the fact that I always pay off my credit card in full each month so that there is never a balance that I have to pay interest on. When you use your credit card in the correct way, there are a lot of advantages that come with it… although I’m not sure that my wife always sees it that way 😉

    I’d love to know which credit card is giving you 5% back. I think most of the “money back” cards are giving 0.5%!

    I’m in a bit of a different situation since I’m living in Japan, but there are cards that give up to 5% in certain categories:

    Come on, you could have omitted the third paragraph!

    This post/article has made pfadvice.com leave my “coffe break” routine. The filters at work did NOT like me visiting your site and neither did my boss when he saw the report!

    I don’t know anybody that can read this at work! I’m sorry the editors chose this article….

    Great article! One of the best and most interesting credit card articles I have ever read!

    You certainly have a very creative way of making a rather dull topic very interesting!

  18. I got to hand it to you. I’ve been writing about credit cards for 5 years and this is the most original way to write about the world’s dullest subject. Kudos!

    That headline was the best I’ve read in a looong time!

    … and the days of getting big rebates from credit cards are long gone, sadly.
