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.

Chase Sapphire Reserve card

4.6 rating

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 $450 annual fee.

Capital One® Quicksilver® Cash Rewards Credit Card

With a decent sign-up bonus, unlimited 1.5 percent cash back offer on every purchase and few restrictions on redemption, the Quicksilver Cash Rewards card offers a fair amount of value; but it doesn’t offer nearly as much cash back as other cards.

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.

If you pay close attention to your card usage, the American Express Everyday card can deliver a great bonus rate on U.S. supermarket purchases, but there are many cards that offer better overall rewards for a lot less work. This offer is no longer available on our site.

3.1 rating

If you don’t mind enrolling in and tracking a rotating group of bonus categories every quarter and tailoring your spending, you could potentially get a substantial amount of value out of this everyday cash back card.
