Hey Shopaholic! What Kind Of Spender Are You?

When it comes to shopping, there’s no one who knows how to do it better than you. You know when the stores begin their yearly sales, which branches have the best stocks, and whether or not certain brands have better deals online or in stores. Even among your girlfriends, you’re known to be the guru and the one to approach when there’s a fashion emergency.


But there’s another step to maximize shopping, and make the most out of it—paying with your credit card!


You may (or may not) know it, but your credit card offers different promos and bonuses that can make your shopping experience even more fun... if fun for you means getting more savings and freebies!


Here are six types of shoppers and which credit card suit them best. Read on to find out which one you are plus which credit card is best suited for your shopping style!


  1. The Smart Shopper
