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.

Blue Delta SkyMiles card from American Express
Last reviewed: January 6, 2020

Fidelity Rewards Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: October 8, 2019
The Fidelity Rewards card offers cash back at a high 2 percent rate, but — if you’re not inclined to open a Fidelity bank account to get the card — you may be better off searching for a cash back card with fewer restrictions or even a travel card with flexible points.
Best Western Rewards MasterCard
Last reviewed: February 14, 2019
The Best Western Rewards MasterCard offers frequent hotel guests a decent number of bonus points on hotel stays; but its modest sign-up bonus and skimpy rewards on non-hotel purchases limit its appeal.
Sun Country Airlines Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: November 13, 2019
With a low APR and generous sign-up bonus for moderate spenders, the Sun Country Airlines card is a good value for domestic travelers; but the airline’s limited flight path and restrictive redemption policy may limit its appeal.
Bank of America Cash Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: January 7, 2020
The Bank of America Cash Rewards card offers an exceptional rewards rate on a category of the user’s choice, allowing increased flexibility. But a $2,500 spending cap on bonus category rewards limits how much cardholders can earn.
United MileagePlus Club Card
Last reviewed: January 14, 2020
Cardholders who aren’t specifically looking for a United Club membership will find a plethora of rewards cards with better perks and much lower annual fees than the United MileagePlus Club Card. This offer is no longer available on our site.
KeyBank Key2More Rewards credit card
Last reviewed: November 14, 2019
With a decent APR and a higher-than-average rewards rate, the Key2More Rewards MasterCard sounds like a great deal; but when you add up the value of the card’s inflated rewards points, you’ll find this card isn’t as generous as it seems.

You can travel anytime you want with this flexible travel card: The Bank of America Travel Rewards Visa 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.
