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.

Citi Double Cash Card
Last reviewed: March 20, 2020
If you regularly pay off your card in full each month, it’s hard to beat the cash back rewards on the Citi Double Cash card: It offers 2 percent cash back (1 percent when you buy and an additional 1 percent as you make payments for those purchases), making it an ideal card for purchases that don’t qualify for larger bonuses.
Sam's Club Mastercard
Last reviewed: January 16, 2020
With the exception of ample cash back at Sam’s Club gas stations, the Sam’s Club Mastercard is best reserved for making travel and dining purchases outside the warehouse club.

Last reviewed: March 19, 2020
The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card offers a great 5 percent rate on Amazon and Whole Food purchases, but Prime membership requires a high $119 fee, and Amazon points lack versatility.
