Suze Orman keeps exactly $170 in her wallet—here’s why

Recommended Posts


Part of what she said at least makes sense, but not the nonsense about numbers adding to eight...

 

As for her credit cards, “I’m sure you’d expect me to have a black card or a platinum,” Orman said. However, she opts for ones with perks that fit her lifestyle, rather than those that offer prestige. Her American Express card offers 6% cash back on some items and makes sense for Orman’s spending habits.

 

This is actually consistent with what most of us around this forum feel, specifically that you need to keep the cards that make the most sense for your spending.  I carry an AXP Plat, but I also extract more out of the card than the annual fee is costing, so the card makes sense.  Contrast that with the decision some years back to ditch the Chase Presidential Plus...after the merger with United, the card ceased to have a value to me.  The card itself was nice for its time, but not being a fan of the new United, it was not worth the $450 per year. 

 

Side note...even without the card, I still get the Mortons VIP offers and treatment even after the chain was acquired by Fertitta...go figure.  But those semi-annual wine locker events ARE fun.

" And $170 is not a random amount. The numbers — one, seven, zero — add up to eight. “In Asia, eight is the number of wealth,” Orman explained."

 

Good grief, people actually listen to her?

I used to until I realized she's just a smidge above DR in financial sense.
