If you’re like me, then you probably don’t think of credit cards as a tool to help you save for retirement. However, there are a couple of credit cards that will do just that. Both American Express and Visa have a card that can contribute a percentage of the money you spend to a retirement account. There are other cards that can help to pay for prescription drugs and other health expenses as well. While these aren’t a substitute for good planning and saving, it’s nice to think that your next trip to the mall could bring you a little closer to reaching retirement.
