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. Check out the offers below from our partners.
