David Slotnick, provided by Published 2:35 pm CDT, Friday, July 19, 2019 Chase/Business Insider Credit cards with good rewards programs and great new member offers make it easier than ever to rack up a lot of points. The best credit card in 2019 is the Chase Sapphire Reserve because it has a great sign-up bonus and a travel rewards system that makes it easy to collect points. Another option in the premium card space: the Platinum Card® from American Express, which has among the highest annual fees, but benefits, perks, and credits to make up for it — and that's before even considering rewards. Also worth considering: the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, which has a lower annual fee than the beefier Sapphire Reserve, but an even higher sign-up bonus — you can always earn the higher sign-up bonus, then convert it to a Reserve later.

The heavyweight champ's inner circle expect him to obliterate his Brooklyn-born opponent Jarrell Miller in June, win over the American public, and conquer the U.S. market. His promoter, Eddie Hearn, told us that Joshua is "the perfect athlete." So perfect, he could become incredibly rich and earn a billion, just like Mayweather. But Joshua has an advantage that Mayweather never had — Joshua campaigns in the heavyweight division, the weight class that has traditionally been the focal point of all combat sports. Joshua could bring glamour back to the heavyweight landscape and become as prominent as Roger Federer, LeBron James, and Lionel Messi.

Time for “Frugal February,” when splurging on restaurant meals is out and saving money by dining on home-cooked fare is in. A prime reason to observe Frugal February, personal finance experts say, is that consumers tend to overspend during the December holidays and need time for their finances to catch up. Casey Finn, a blogger in Chicago, said she and her husband, Michael, had adopted the tradition of belt-tightening in February several years ago, when they were engaged and worried about paying for a honeymoon trip.
