Kaitlyn wants you to know
My first credit card was a valuable experience. More than anything, I used it to learn about how billing cycles work, when to pay my credit card bills every month, how to read a credit card statement and so on. I didn’t understand anything about credit card rewards at the time, so I put all my purchases on that card, without thinking about what categories the card could earn bonus rewards in. Most importantly, I learned that I could and should dispute unauthorized transactions whenever I came across them.
