Why I need alternate streams of income.

by Rocket Finance

Due to some poor financial decisions after my wife and I were married, we are unable to make ends meet with the income from my current full-time job. So, about four months ago, I started poking around the internet trying to find a way to supplement my families income without working an extra 20 to 25 hours a week. After reading Hustlerblog, Free Money Finance, FIRE Finance, Fatwallet, Bank Bonuses, My Money Blog and others, I started to spend time each night qualifying for bank bonuses, credit card bonuses and researching balance transfer arbitrage. I have been relatively successful to this point, but we are still only breaking even (which is an improvement). I hope to make this blog into something that generates enough income so that my wife can quit her 20 hr a week daycare job and stay home with the kids and i can start a retirement fund – yes, I am almost 33 years old and have a grand total of $2,886(as of this morning) saved for our retirement in a Vangard Simple IRA.

So far, Chase Bank has been very good to my wife and I. I will share the our list of Chase bonuses for which we have qualified in a later post. Suffice it to say that J.P. Morgan Chase has be “very, very good to me”.
