The PayPal Extras Mastercard is burdened by cumbersome redemption tiers, poor redemption value and restrictions galore, making it a hard sell even for frequent PayPal users.

2 rating

This plain vanilla rewards card offers a low APR and standard benefits, such as travel insurance and extended warranty; but its bare bones rewards program won’t get you very far if you’re looking to quickly earn premier rewards.

Though it offers a decent rewards rate, the Wayfair Mastercard carries a sky-high APR and no noteworthy perks or discounts, and is best avoided for all but the most frequent Wayfair shoppers.

Blue Cash card from American Express

Better suited for well-heeled families than cardholders on a budget, the Blue Cash card offers a generous cash back bonus on everyday purchases; but to get it, you have to clear an exceptionally high spending threshold that may be unrealistic for some families. This offer is no longer available.
