I just got an offer from my Wells Fargo Visa card for a program that earns me 1 mile for each $1 spent, good ny airline, and for a fee of only $25 per year. I had always wanted to use a credit card with a frequent flyer bonus, but didn't want to give up the convenience of my Wells Fargo card which is electronically linked into my Quicken home finance software which dowloads and automatically categorizes my statement each month.

Now I get the advantages of Quicken plus the frequent miles, with no annual fee. I have gotten in the habit of using the Wells Fargo card for as many purchases as possible in order to minimize trips to the ATM and to take advantage of the automatic categorization and expense tracking through Quicken. I probably over-spend a little bit because of the easy access, but I get the bill paid off each month. I'm now putting together a budget for the first time in my life in order to get a little tighter grasp on where my money is going, and having my past expenditures categorized and tabulated within Quicken has been essential to making accurate forecasts.
