Rewards card reviews

Rewards Credit Cards - Reviews

Credit card rewards come in many forms -- from miles to cash back to points -- that can redeemed for a variety of goodies. Some cards offer large sign-up bonuses, others offer extra earnings on bonus categories. Some cards charge annual fees. All these differences can make it difficult to compare.

We've created a rating system to cut through the complicated details and compare cards on a similar basis. Our ratings take into account the estimated value of their rewards, the ease of redeeming rewards and special perks and benefits.

The price of admission for this luxury card from J.P. Morgan Chase is steep, but its large sign-up bonus and generous travel allowance more than make up for the card’s $550 annual fee.

JetBlue Plus card review

JetBlue Plus card

3.9 rating

The value of TrueBlue points is high, but the JetBlue Plus card doesn’t offer  many options for redeeming those points outside of JetBlue flights and vacations, and the card is of little use to cardholders who don’t live in a city served by JetBlue Airways. This offer is no longer available.
