The Six Best Credit Cards for Rental-Car Coverage
I was in Louisiana last year visiting family. As I was driving out of New Orleans on Interstate 10, an 18-wheeler kicked up a rock that size of a small football stadium, which then slammed the windshield of my rental car with an explosion that sounded like a small bomb going off.

Sometimes you just have to be blunt: The Boscov’s credit card is quite possibly the single worst credit card I’ve come across yet.

The Pottery Barn Credit Card: Do You Want to Decorate Your Wallet With This Piece of Plastic?
Pottery Barn brings an interesting twist to the loyalty credit card: cash back or, if your purchase is big enough, special financing.
