We’re kicking off the week by answering listener questions! And if you have a question that you’d like for us to answer on the show, we’d love for you to submit your own via HowToMoney.com/ask/ , send us your voice memo. Regardless of how random or bizarre you might think it is, we want to hear it!

It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer, though we don’t want you to be tempted into spending more than you otherwise would. But if you’re looking to maximize your credit card benefits, Chase is offering the best welcome offer we have ever seen. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is rewarding folks $1,250 after the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
