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.
Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express
Last reviewed: September 28, 2018
Gold Delta Skymiles points are worth more than the average credit card rewards point, making this airline card’s rewards program an attractive choice for cardholders who want to quickly earn a free flight on a major carrier.
SunTrust Cash Back credit card
Last reviewed: April 6, 2018
With a low APR and generous rewards for SunTrust bank account holders, the SunTrust Cash Back credit card is a good choice for well-heeled SunTrust customers; however, cardholders with low checking account balances won’t get nearly as much benefit.
Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Luxury Card
Last reviewed: September 26, 2018
The Starwood Preferred Guest American Express Luxury card offers a lot of value in its first year thanks to a giant introductory bonus, but – if you’re not interested in luxury perks with Marriott hotels – you can find many rewards cards that offer better ongoing value.
Mastercard Titanium Card
Last reviewed: October 11, 2018
The rewards earning rate on the Mastercard Titanium Card is low and it doesn’t offer a sign-up bonus, but cardholders can at least enjoy some of the luxury card program’s unique luxury perks at a relatively affordable $195 fee.
Mastercard Gold Card
Last reviewed: October 11, 2018
With an exorbitant annual fee and average rewards earning rate, the Mastercard Gold Card is not for the average cardholder; cardholders looking for a unique card that conveys status may, however, enjoy the card’s luxury perks.
USAA Cashback Rewards Plus American Express
Last reviewed: September 17, 2018
The USAA Cashback Rewards Plus MasterCard is an ideal card for military families: It offers an industry-leading 5 percent cash back on gas and military base purchases, 2 percent cash back on groceries and a number of money-saving perks for active duty service members.

For travelers in range of a JetBlue hub, the JetBlue card offers a good value both in terms of its airline and its rewards program, though others may be better off with a more general rewards card. This offer is no longer available through our site.
First National Bank American Express card
Last reviewed: February 21, 2018
The First National Bank American Express card offers a high rewards rate on all your spending and a fair sign-up bonus, but the standout feature is the card’s ease of use: Your cash back is automatically credited to your statement whenever you earn $25.
Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa Card
Last reviewed: October 1, 2018
With a flat rate of 1.5 percent cash back on all your purchases, a generous sign-up bonus and a special bonus for mobile payments in the first year, the Wells Fargo Cash Wise card is especially awarding to new cardholders.
Wyndham Rewards Visa Signature card
Last reviewed: June 6, 2018
Cardholders on the search for a more flexible rewards card may be able to make good use of Wyndham’s large network of budget hotels, though they’ll have to watch out for the short expiration date on rewards points.
TD Aeroplan Visa credit card
Last reviewed: November 15, 2017
You won’t have trouble earning a free flight in your first year with this premium airline card: The TD AeroPlan Visa Signature card offers a substantial sign-up bonus in the card’s first year; but you’ll have to fly to Canada often after the card’s first year to make up for its pricey annual fee.
VentureOne From Capital One
Last reviewed: July 2, 2018
The VentureOne card from Capital One is a good pick for cardholders who want rewards-funded travel, but don’t want to deal with blackout dates or complicated rewards schemes: In lieu of complicated bonuses, the card awards 1.25 miles on every purchase and it allows you to book your rewards-funded travel yourself from any website or travel agent you choose.
