I was considering applying for an AAA rewards visa card so I could earn triple points for travel purchases and double points on gas and grocery purchases. This seems like a great card. Are there any other factors I should consider before applying?

Before applying for a new credit card, it’s a good idea to think about whether the card offers everything you really want. If you like the idea of getting triple points on purchases, look at other cards that offer a similar rewards-earning potential. There may be a cap on how many points you can earn, or the points may expire if you don’t use them for a while. In this case, the card seems like a great one that offers the things you want most. The only other thing to consider is whether your credit score is good enough to be approved, and whether there’s another type of card you might get more out of. If your credit is in the recommended range, and you’re sure no other card offers a better deal, go ahead!
