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. Check out the offers below from our partners.
Menards BIG credit card
Last reviewed: April 28, 2021
Despite the retailer’s catchy jingle, even the biggest home improvement enthusiasts are unlikely to save big money with the Menards BIG credit card.
Last reviewed: May 5, 2021
Despite a paltry points system, regular Kohl’s customers can still save a considerable amount of money with the Kohl’s Card – but a steep APR puts cardholders at risk of having interest charges eat into their rewards and discounts.
Citi ThankYou Preferred Card
Last reviewed: June 2, 2020
A good card for night owls and weekend adventurers, the Citi ThankYou Preferred card sets itself apart by offering bonus points on a wide variety of dining and entertainment purchases; however, it doesn’t offer much value for everyday purchases, such as gas or groceries, and it doesn’t offer any kind of sign-up bonus. This offer is no longer available.
Bank of the West Premier World Mastercard
Last reviewed: November 16, 2018
A good card for frequent travelers, the Bank of the West Premier World Mastercard offers a solid bonus on travel and restaurant purchases; but to avoid paying an annual fee, you need to have a Bank of the West checking account. This offer is no longer available.
PenFed Platinum Cash Rewards Visa card
Last reviewed: May 6, 2020
An outstanding card for PenFed credit union customers, the PenFed Platinum Cash Rewards Visa card pairs an exceptionally low interest rate with generous rewards on everyday purchases. This offer is no longer available.
Citi Hilton Honors Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: December 12, 2019
With a large sign-up bonus, flexible rewards redemption and one of the world’s largest hotel loyalty programs, the Citi Hilton Honors Visa Signature card offers good value, but holds less appeal for cardholders seeking rewards options outside of Hilton hotel stays. This offer is no longer available.
Fairmont Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: April 6, 2018
A great card for fans of luxury hotels and resorts, the Fairmont Visa Signature card makes it easy to earn upscale hotel stays by awarding some of the most generous bonuses available, including two free nights if you spend $3,000 in the card’s first three months and one free night a year if you spend at least $12,000. This offer is no longer available.
Blue Cash card from American Express
Last reviewed: July 27, 2021
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.
Citi Hilton Honors Reserve card
Last reviewed: September 23, 2019
One of the best hotel cards on the market, the Citi Hilton Honors Reserve card showers cardholders with ample rewards on hotel stays, airfare and general credit card purchases and gives moderate spenders an extra free night’s stay each year. This offer is no longer available.
Capital One® Premier Dining Rewards Credit Card
Last reviewed: May 6, 2021
With no annual fee, 3 percent cash back on restaurants and flexible redemption options, the brand-new Capital One Premier Dining Rewards card is an especially good deal for foodies and others who frequently dine out. This offer is no longer available.
Barclays Arrival Premier World Elite Mastercard
Last reviewed: July 20, 2021
The Barclays Arrival Premier World Elite Mastercard lacks a sign-up bonus and — compared to similar rewards cards — the spending threshold to unlock its full annual bonus is steep; however, if you use it as your go-to card, the rewards could really add up over time. This offer is no longer available.
