Getting Setup

Here’s a brief step by step with links.  Some of the links are referrals and I get some sort of credit, but these are all programs I actually use:

Lastpass
https://lastpass.com/f?2931176
– You will end up signing up for many sites (rewards, banking, etc) all asking for a new set of credentials.  Lastpass has been a fantastic tool for me to use different passwords on each site.

AwardWallet
– http://AwardWallet.com/?refCode=ouwhflsgqi
– Tracks reward points across multiple programs, this has been a great tool for me.

Credit Sesame
– http://csesa.me/?r=ZXnAEN0le
– Provides FAKO score that should give you an idea of what your Experian score is.

Credit Karma
– https://www.creditkarma.com
– Provides FAKO score that should give you an idea of what your Transunion score is.
– Also helped me understand what factors are actually important to maintain credit
