The Discover it Cash Back card offers a substantial amount of value for cardholders who don’t mind keeping track of rotating bonus categories; but what really sets this card apart from its competitors is its consumer-friendly terms and ultra generous sign-up bonus, which matches the amount of cash back you earn at the end of the card member’s first year.

Discover it® Miles
Last reviewed: January 6, 2021
The Discover it Miles card offers a range of high-end travel perks and an industry-leading rewards rate for the card’s first 12 months, but the benefits drop off significantly after the first year.
Bank of America® Cash Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: January 11, 2021
The Bank of America Cash Rewards card offers an exceptional rewards rate on a category of the user’s choice, allowing increased flexibility. But a $2,500 spending cap on bonus category rewards limits how much cardholders can earn.
Hilton Honors American Express Card
Last reviewed: September 25, 2020
The Hilton Honors card offers a generous number of bonus points on hotel and everyday purchases; but because Hilton’s Honors aren’t worth as much as the average credit card rewards point, cardholders need a larger number of points to purchase rewards-funded travel.
Citi® Diamond Preferred® Card
Last reviewed: January 25, 2021
Thanks to its long introductory offers on balance transfers and purchases, the Citi Diamond Preferred Card is a solid option if you need to pay down debt or finance a large purchase. Just be sure to factor in the card’s high balance transfer fee when weighing options.
