Power Up Your Spending With This Month’s Credit Card Promos

“A credit card is a tool of empowerment and of convenience,” said Stephanie Chung, CEO and Co-Founder of eCompareMo, at the #RejectED Roundtable Discussion held on July 30 at the Rappler office.

The talk focused on the importance of good credit history, and how to rebuild good credit score. While those two reasons are important benefits of wise credit card use, there’s another perk that maybe wasn’t as touched on—the monthly promos and discounts different credit card companies provide for their users.

One thing’s for sure: Those that put their credit cards to informed and responsible use are never lacking on generous deals and promos, and this month is no exception.

Here are the best credit card promos for August:
