I swear I had the latest issue of Consumer Reports Magazine sitting right here on my desk so I could share the top rated credit cards (they analyzed hundreds), but it has mysteriously disappeared*. So I googled them (I google everything) and came across The Frugal Duchess blog** that beat me to the punch. Do you carry one of the best credit cards?

*Ok, so I admit my desk (ok, my whole office) is a mess. Now you know why I haven't gotten a new webcam for my Mailbox Mondays videos – this ancient one blurs out the mess quite nicely.
