Brady also works with noted personal finance experts to deliver weekly insights into key topics such as business credit, credit scores, using rewards to fund travel and credit card industry trends.

As a personal finance writer and editor, Brady’s goal is to break down complex credit card topics in a way that helps consumers make the best decisions for their finances – whether it’s choosing the best cards for their spending needs, getting out of debt, starting a business or planning a dream vacation with points and miles.

If you’re a credit card user and you want to avoid getting into debt, it’s critical to create a budget and stick to it. Avoid spending more with your card than you can pay off each month. Better yet, pay your balance down to zero each week if your budget allows it.
