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.

Capital One VentureOne Rewards Credit Card

3.6 rating

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.

Spirit Airlines World Mastercard credit card review

Spirit Airlines World Mastercard credit card

3.6 rating

The Travel More card could be a great value for Spirit Airlines loyalists thanks to its practical rewards categories and easy-to-score annual companion travel voucher. But if you’re looking for flexible reward redemption, it’s definitely not the card for you.

Citi® Double Cash Card review

Citi® Double Cash Card

3.5 rating

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.

Fidelity Rewards Visa Signature card review

Fidelity Rewards Visa Signature card

3.5 rating

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.
