Credit cards if used wisely can bring you many rewards. The way to know for sure, which will aid you, is to compare credit cards and see what’s on offer. There are hundreds of credit cards issued by dozens of banks, supermarkets and lenders. Some credit cards have low annual fees, while others offer a variety of rewards and still others provide compelling deals for those that are looking to transfer an existing credit card balance. It’s a credit card jungle out there.
The best credit card with rewards are one’s for me that enable me to treat myself on the benefits that they offer. When the kids are back at school, I am going to use the points from my reward credit card to treat myself to a spa day.
I am in the thick of the school holidays and covered in kids whilst trying to juggle work and home. I love the school holidays but having the kids at home increases the workload two fold – they snack all the time, plus devour their three meals, trash the house and make so much noise that it’s impossible to find any peace. But I love the lie-ins. My children love to lie in and it’s great not having to get them up early and ready for school. It’s great to spend time with them and cherish their quirky, funny little ways and expressions.
I think that women, but especially mum’s lose sight of their own needs, and it’s hard to find the time or the spare cash to treat yourself to something nice when everybody else is your priority. Ironically, many women often don’t realise how much spending power we have and using our credit cards wisely can earn us rewards which we can use for the shiny stuff that we have definitely earned by running around like crazy people trying to keep everybody happy. When I am hoovering for the umpteenth time, or I am unloading the dishwasher for the gazillionth time, or maybe putting on the fourth load of washing in one day in my head I am Zen.
I am thinking about the soothing music, lying on the lounger, reading my magazine completely uninterrupted. Maybe I’ll have an Aromatherapy Massage – a gentle massage using aromatherapy oils to enhance the mood and relax your body or perhaps, a Neck and Shoulder Massage – a massage to increase blood and lymphatic flow, which helps promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation and can improve muscle tone and skin texture. Perhaps, I’d go for a facial to take away some of the signs of aging that seems to rapidly accelerating beyond my control. Maybe a radiance facial to counteract the advanced signs of skin ageing such as lines, slackened skin, tone and pigmentation. A treatment that includes cleansing, exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and a relaxing face, neck and shoulder massage. Sounds great – yes, book me in.
I am thinking about how I am going to reap the rewards of smart credit card usage that has meant that I am able to give myself a relaxing little treat and this eases the roller coaster of living with, and loving, my crazy, turbulent, demanding but adorable children.
