“Financial wellness begins with understanding your lifestyle - how you earn, how you spend, how you save. Credit cards can be a powerful tool to help you identify your patterns, save money and get access to perks. Use them wisely, and they’ll open up doors for your overall financial health.” - Margaret Drummond
