In a very timely post, J. Money of Budgets Are Sexy just wrote about all the things you need to consider when you change your credit card number or receive a new main card.
Like J. Money, I use my credit card for everything, and have several automatic payments set up with it.
I recently wrote about how I got a new PC Financial Mastercard which I am now going to use as my main card so I can accumulate free groceries This means I need to make a list of all the places those automatic payments go to and start switching them over!
I started doing that last night when I was checking the balance on my “old” MC. A small charge for a charity I support monthly was on there which reminded me that I need to switch everything over. I think the best thing to do is keep all your automatic transactions on one main card so that you don’t lose track.
I would hate to have a small, regular transaction cause me to pay a ridiculous amount of interest if I happened to forget about it one month!
Here’s my list of transactions to switch so far:
- Phone/internet bill
- Gym membership
Cat Rescue Charity
- Animal Shelter Charity
I guess I had better get started!
