Why Paying For My Vacation With an Honor Credit Card Made Sense!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it up to here with this bitterly cold Michigan winter. I’m desperately in need of the sun’s warm rays on my face.

I’ve been patiently waiting for Spring to come knocking on my door, but unfortunately, my patience has run out. March is here and it’s still not as warm or as sunny as I’d like it to be. You can have your 50-degree days, because I’m only interested in 75 and sunny!

Moral of the story…I need a vacation!

So, I went through my options. I already put my tax return in a higher interest certificate of deposit so I can stick to my New Year’s Resolution to save as much money as I can this year.

Paying for a beach vacation out of my pocket won’t allow me to stick to my 52-Week Savings Challenge.

Luckily, I found the best option to escape the cold. Honor is now offering a credit card that will allow me to book my flight and hotel and pay no interest on it until 2020!

What?? I don’t have to pay interest on any of my credit card purchases until next year??! Sign me up!

So, I went down to my local Honor Member Center

I found out that I could choose from two great credit card options, the Honor Select and the Honor Select Rewards Credit Card. I immediately decided that the rewards card was the right card for me… Because, well, I can build up points to pay for my next vacation!

I received my new credit card in minutes!

The Member Specialist printed my credit card just minutes after my application was approved, handed it to me, and I was out the door to book my vacation.

I chose a payment plan that works for me

I set up my account to pay my monthly credit card bill directly from my Benefits Checking Account each month. I chose a plan that would help me stick to my current budget and keep my credit card balance low to keep my credit score high.

Thanks to my new Honor Select Rewards Credit Card, I’m off to find the sun and stick my toes in the warm sand.

See ya later, winter!
