Financial Life Hack: Get Two Credit Card Numbers

No, not two credit cards (well, maybe; see below) - two credit card numbers attached to your current account with Capital One or Chase or wherever.

Keep one at home and one in your wallet.

Attach Amazon, Netflix, Comcast, your Financial Zen subscription, etc. to the one you keep at home.

Now the next time you lose the card in your wallet you won't have to endure the pain of updating all your online accounts.

Brilliant, right?

Must give credit where it's due. When I lost my credit card 3 weeks ago, the Capital One rep shared this with me. So don't thank me, thank Cheryl!

Financial Zen Bonus Tip: If you're like me and buy 90% of your life on Amazon, get the Amazon Chase card. It pays 5% cash back, so it's like getting a 5% discount on your life.
