This Chrome Extension Tells You Which Credit Card to Use for Your Online Purchases
Shopping online is easy. Almost too easy. But knowing which credit card will get you the best rewards is not. Enter the new Chrome extension from Wallaby, which allows you to compare rewards with one quick click on your browser toolbar.
It’s great for online power shoppers who want to build up mileage points for discounted travel, hotel upgrades, or purchases. Hey, as long as you’re using credit cards, you might as well use them to get the best possible perks, right?
Here’s how it works:
1. First, you’ll need to sign up for Wallaby here. Be forewarned: You’ll need your credit cards handy.
2. Once you create a username and password, you’ll be asked to connect your credit card banks to Wallaby. You might be wondering, is that secure? Well, just as secure as the majority of the Internet. That is to say, Wallaby was affected by the Heartbleed bug but was immediately patched. Though not likely to be open to any other vulnerability, it was in the past.
If you choose to try it out, you can either search for a specific bank or choose from a list below.
3. Each time you choose a bank, a box will pop up asking you to type in your online log-in information for that specific institution.
4. After you’ve added your cards, click Done. You’ll be brought to the Goals section, during which you’ll be asked a series of questions about what kind of points and discounts you’d like. For instance, my priority is to build up mileage points, so Wallaby asked me about my future travel plans.
