This edition of the Best of Credit Cards and Saving Money would not be possible without the help of Dayquil (well, actually the generic brand – I'm cheap). I'm not sure why this stuff is legally sold over the counter, but its been getting me out of bed and keeping me awake long enough to compile this week's carnival, so my hat's off to its creators.
Now that I've once again shared my personal travail of the week, it's time to get down and dirty with this week's article selections. All the usual suspects are here and this week there are a lot of good cash back deals only available on select sites that are worth consideration. Apart from those, we've got some good credit and personal finance tips as well. And so, before my last shot of Dayquil wears off and my daily Dayquil overdose hallucinations begin, here are this week's selections.
