It’s not a vast improvement. That credit charge, once again, is for apartment related items. 1% of everything charged in the card will be refunded to me, and I pay the balance off at the end of the month, so I never pay any interest on it.

Well keep in mind that $3,000 of that money I have in cash will be going to the credit card at the end of the month.
