Sounds like they are buying gift cards with each paycheck and earning points, then dumping the gift cards into their bluebird checking account? I have a coworker who does that here to build points and get a $1 off a gallon of gas every fill up.

There is a number of reasons why you might max out one before the other though I believe there are 2 main factors to look at up front. 1 being how much income you make, and 2 being how much flexibility do you want for your retirement investing?
If you are making a substantial amount of inco...
