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.

Fidelity Rewards Visa Signature card

2.7 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.

SunTrust Travel Rewards card review

SunTrust Travel Rewards card

2.8 rating

With a low APR and a triple point bonus on airfare, hotels and car rental purchases, this is a good card to use for travel; however, don’t count on using it for everyday purchases since you won’t get much value out of the card once you return home.
