5 Credit Cards to Use if You Uber Everywhere

5 Credit Cards to Use if You Uber Everywhere

The sharing economy has been growing rapidly over the past several years. Start-ups like Uber, Lyft and Gett are providing everyone easier-to-use alternatives to cab companies. By being able to add your credit card information directly into an app, you can pay for your ride without even pulling out your wallet.

Many credit card issuers offer extra rewards on shared rides. Of course, you’ll want to pay these rides off in full; otherwise, those extra points will get eaten by interest. And you’ll want to read the fine print of any card you’re considering to be sure it’s a good fit for your wallet. Finally, you’ll want to check your credit. Most rewards credit cards require good credit to qualify, and you don’t want to risk a hard inquiry, just to receive a rejection.

With that in mind, here are five credit cards to consider if you Uber everywhere.

Four Shows That Capture the Modern Family (Beyond Modern Family)

“Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life,” wrote Oscar Wilde, but we think some of the greatest art — or at least TV — shines in executing the latter. Shows dating back farther than The Honeymooners were built on the idea that our everyday lives — our marriages, our kids, our jobs — hearten us and make us laugh, and the continued success of quintessential shows like Modern Family have proven that belief still rings true.

With hundreds of channels and dozens of platforms for watching TV, there’s only more opportunity to laugh at the everyday comedy of life, and to cry at its challenging realities. Things aren’t perfect, but there’s plenty of love, respect, and fun to go around. They rarely disappoint and they almost always comfort. So pop the popcorn, kick back, and enjoy these four shows that truly capture the modern family.
