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.
Marriott Rewards Premier Business credit card
Last reviewed: April 17, 2018
The Marriott Rewards Premier Business card gives you a sweet sign-up bonus, but the card’s rewards program is nearly identical to the personal version of the card – and at a slightly higher annual fee.
Asiana Airlines American Express Card From Bank of America
Last reviewed: December 5, 2017
One of the few airline cards to offer a bonus on everyday purchases and a reasonable APR for all cardholders, the Asiana Airlines American Express card is a good value for regular visitors to South Korea.
Bank of America Travel Rewards credit card review
Last reviewed: July 31, 2018
You can travel anytime you want with this flexible travel card: The Bank of America Travel Rewards credit card sets itself apart from other travel cards by doing away with restrictive travel policies and letting you book your rewards-funded travel yourself.
Golden 1 Credit Union Platinum Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: February 21, 2018
If you live in Northern California, this is an ideal card to use for your everyday spending: The Golden1 Credit Union Platinum Rewards card offers one of the lowest APRs available on a rewards credit card while also offering one of the most generous bonus rates available without paying an annual fee.
Capital One® Quicksilver® Card
Last reviewed: July 6, 2018
With a decent sign-up bonus, unlimited 1.5 percent cash back offer on every purchase and few restrictions on redemption, the Quicksilver Rewards card offers a fair amount of value; but it doesn’t offer nearly as much cash back as other cards.
IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card
Last reviewed: August 3, 2018
With a large sign-up bonus and other valuable rewards — including a free hotel night each year — the IHG Rewards Club Premier card is packed with value.
Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard
Last reviewed: April 6, 2018
This premium airline card offers a hefty sign-up bonus in the first year and attractive perks, such as a $100 companion certificate; but with an $89 annual fee and a ho hum rewards rate, the card’s value falls sharply after its first year.
Capital One SavorOne Cash Rewards Credit Card
Last reviewed: August 14, 2018
The SavorOne card offers a good rewards rate for cardholders who spend a heavy amount on food, but most cardholders are probably better off searching for a card with a flat 2 percent rate.
American Express Cash Magnet℠ card
Last reviewed: July 27, 2018
The 1.5 rewards rate on the American Express Cash Magnet card is nothing special, but the introductory offer is generous if you can manage to meet the spend threshold.
Citi ThankYou Preferred card
Last reviewed: June 19, 2018
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.
JetBlue Plus card
Last reviewed: January 30, 2018
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 through our site.
American Express Everyday card
Last reviewed: June 14, 2018
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.
