How To Climb The Credit Card Ladder (Explained)

In this video, we’re going over how to climb the credit card ladder from starter credit cards at the bottom to the best high tier travel credit cards at the top! I’ll talk about the different credit card tiers and what features are found in each one, but I’ll also discuss how to level up within this credit card tier list. I was able to go from my first student credit card over 6 years ago to cards like the Amex Platinum now, so hopefully my experience will be helpful for anyone else looking to get more value from using credit!

Throughout the 5 tiers of credit card ladder, there are a ton of great Chase credit cards, American Express credit cards, and many more. It’ll be up to you to choose these cards based on your own preferences, but if you follow the order that I talk about in this video then you should be able to reach the top!
