Free Airport Parking

I hate having to dish out extra $$ when flying. Parking your car at an airport can cost $7-$15 a day in the 'economy' parking. If you're out of town for a week or more you could be spending at least $100 to leave you car parked. You could have your friend drop you off and pick you up, but that is often a hassle and with gas prices so high, the extra trips to the airport can also cost you. What do you do then?

Here's what you do and what I've done many, many times:

Get $50 from Discover

Discover card is actually an AWESOME card to have. I've had one for over 3 years. The $50 bonus is not as big as other credit cards, but the card has a lot of good benefits.

Free Fax

Faxes are annoying, but every once in a while I need to send a form or document. However I don't have a fax machine, but I do have a printer that has a scanner. So instead of spending time and money to go to Kinkos, I just do it for FREE online.

Bonus $400 NFL card

Barclays Extra Points Credit Card is currently offering a bonus of $400 after spending $2500 in the first 3 months. Don't spend that much in 3 months? Here is an easy way that I have used to reach that spending requirement through Amazon Payments.

I'm not really an NFL fan, but I still got this card cause I'll get $400 free. Why not?

Amazon Payments

UPDATE: This is now DEAD. RIP AP

So there are many different cards that offer $100, $200, or more as sign-on-bonuses when you get their credit card AND spend X amount of dollars in 3 months. The amount you have to spend might be only $500, but it can be upwards of $5000+. If you don't usually charge your card that much how can you spend, say $1000 every month on your credit card? Well, if you have a spouse, family member, or good friend, Amazon Payments is an easy way to do this.

Discounted Gift Cards

There are many sites that buy and sell gift cards. Buying discounted gift cards is a great way to stack your savings. I've been using these sites for a while and I know my mom uses them too as she gave me the suggestion to make this post (there's nothing cooler than a shout out to your mom!).

Credit FAQ and FREE credit scores

There is a lot of misunderstanding about credit cards and scores. People either get credit cards and use them uncontrollable or are deathly afraid of them. Hopefully this post and monitoring your FREE credit score will help you better understand how it all works.
