Not being particularly interested in maximizing revenue, I sequestered my own credit card links into a little in the “MMM Recommends” link above*.
In the hope of making things more useful to readers, I evaluated each credit card offer myself, and sorted them so that the most valuable offers were near the top of the list.
Money Mustache is a big fan of cash-back credit cards.
Not for borrowing, of course, but as a means of channeling through your standard spending and collecting significant rewards (for most of us, over 00 per year).
You can generate and validate credit card numbers directly from the app, making it easy to use on the go as well.
Validation in particular would be useful if you were accepting credit card payments on your own site and wanted to make sure the cards were legit.
Now, to be completely clear, these numbers cannot be used to purchase any item. The credit card number generator uses a system based off of the Luhn Algorithm, which has been used to validate numbers for decades.
You can learn more about the algorithm on their webpage, or check out the Null Byte guide on how credit card algorithms work.The app is ad-supported, but since it's free, I can live with that.In the generate field you can select from most of the major credit card providers, including American Express, Mastercard, Visa, and Discover.You can, however, get unlimited free trials on those sites using a simple trick with your email address if you have a valid card number with expiration date and CSV.There's also an Android application for getting fake card numbers called Card Gen, available for free in the Play Store.A fake number will work for sites that store credit card information to either charge you later or ask you to upgrade.
