One way to save time is to shop the military businesses first-- USAA, NFCU (which just opened their rolls to the Army & Air Force) and PenFed have very attractive offers.
Another way is to read a lot of Bankrate.com articles on credit cards. They occasionally run an article that compares 20-30 cards with various parameters to help people choose the best deal.
The book written on E-R.org, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
