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 Target Redcard is a no-brainer for loyal customers of the discount retailer, but its typically high APR means cardholders who don’t pay their monthly balance in full might end up negating the store card’s savings and other benefits. This offer is no longer available on our site.
Disney Visa card from Chase
Last reviewed: November 12, 2019
Though the Disney Visa card shines on Disney theme park perks and discounts, its rewards program leaves much to be desired.
USAA Rewards American Express Card
Last reviewed: December 2, 2019
The USAA Rewards American Express Card offers a fair amount of points on dining out, gas and grocery store purchases, but beware of its APR, which can run very high.
mymaurices VIP credit card
Last reviewed: August 26, 2019
Frequent Maurices shoppers could save a considerable amount of money with the mymaurices VIP credit card, but its exceptionally high APR means those who don’t usually pay their balances in full every month should stay far, far away.
Victoria's Secret Angel credit card
Last reviewed: October 29, 2018
The Victoria’s Secret Angel credit card is must-have plastic for die-hard fans of the lingerie retailer, but those who rarely patronize the pink-hued stores should steer clear.
TJX Rewards Platinum Mastercard
Last reviewed: May 20, 2019
If discount department stores are your happy place and you love the idea of uncomplicated rewards and automatic redemption, the TJX Rewards Platinum Mastercard could be a good choice – but the card’s high APR and low overall rewards rate could be a reason to pass on it.
DCU Visa Platinum Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: November 13, 2019
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.
Commerce Bank Special Connections Visa Signature credit card
Last reviewed: November 13, 2019
While the card’s 1.5 percent rewards rate is fairly high, cardholders can find far more rewarding cash back cards that offer large sign-up bonuses.
IKEA® Visa® Credit Card
Last reviewed: October 29, 2019
You’ll earn rewards at a nice clip with the IKEA Visa Credit Card, but since you can only redeem Rewards Certificates at IKEA, the card will be of little use to anyone but the store’s most loyal shoppers.
AeroMexico Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: February 13, 2019
A great card for large families, the AeroMexico Visa Signature card pairs a budget-friendly rewards program with family-friendly perks, including a $99 companion ticket and a free fourth ticket when you buy three tickets on the same flight.
