Lots of people have been trouble using the IRS’ Stimulus Payment website.  It offers to let you check your payment or add direct deposit information, and that works for a majority of people.

However, the minority that it has not worked for is substantial.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

I, for one, get this message when I try to check mine:

Many people got a letter in the mail this week confirming their payment, but if you didn’t, there could be an issue.

While you won’t find it on the IRS website, there is an actual phone number you can call to reach a human being.

That IRS phone number is 800-919-9835.

I obviously can’t guarantee you’ll get the help you need, but it’s worth a shot!

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
