Hi, I have excellent credit, and pay off full amount every month. I want a cash back card with no annual fees. I am considering Chase Freedom (5% rotating categories) and Blue cash Everyday American Express.

I have Chase Freedom, and I pay the balance off each month as well. There are no annual fees. About 3 years ago, I requested to cash out on my "Rewards" and they sent me a check for $720.00. I have had no problems with Chase Freedom card

I have excellent credit & pay my balance every month. What is the best no fee card with the greatest cash back ?

When picking the best cash back credit card, it's important to consider what you already spend the most money on. For example if you spend a lot on gas and groceries, then the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express or the BankAmericard Cash Rewards could be a great card for you. But if you're more interested in earning a flat cash back rate, the Citi Double Cash would be a great choice!

By: Martin Markowitz | Mar 30, 2017

Citi double cash back in my opinion. 1% when you purchase and 1% when you pay on the card. No annual fee.

By: Pala Aujla | Apr 8, 2017

The best credit card for cash back is Mastercard from Bank of America, it is no cap on unlimited cash back.

By: Zdivinita Gordillo | Jun 20, 2017

The best so far is the citibank double cashback with 2% in everything

How can i get a card with no credit?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Oct 25, 2016

If you have no credit, you will need to start with a secured credit card. Secured cards work just like normal credit cards, but you have to put down a refundable security deposit to get approved. After a year or so of responsible use, you should have built up enough credit history to get approved for a standard, unsecured credit card. The Capital One Secured MasterCard and the Discover it Secured Credit Card are both great options.

I have had various American Express cards continuously since the early 70s. I have had the Everyday AX Blue card for 20 years. No annual fee and great cash back. Customer Service is tops. I was pick pocketed in Vienna, Austria and American Express had a new card to me in an hour. They are also great about handling disputes. Another criteria that should be included in the comparison of credit cards is the percentage charged by the card for foreign transactions.

You'll need a card that offers flexible travel rewards if you wish to redeem for cruises, airfare, and hotels. Three cards that you should consider are the BankAmericard Travel Rewards, Chase Sapphire Preferred, and the Capital One Venture.

Hi. I need the best cash back card that is a VISA. I feel like the Chase Freedom Unlimited is the best cash-back option. I need it to be a Visa though, because it functions as my family card and I do a lot of shopping at Costco. I think the Freedom Unlimited is a Visa, but really that's really just a guess because I can't see the logo and there's no mention of Visa in the card description. Does anyone know for sure?

You are right that the Chase Freedom Unlimited is an excellent option for cash back and it's also a Visa credit card. It comes with unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase and one of the biggest cash back sign up bonuses; $150 after you spend $500 in the first 3 months.

By: Lance Mellon | Jun 9, 2017

Get the Costco Citi Visa card at Costco. Lots of cash back! I forget how much but something like 4% on all gas anywhere, 3% groceries anywhere and 1% on everything else. That and my 6% American Express Blue Card is a great combo!

About Cash Back Credit Cards – Find the Best Cashback Credit Cards

Cash back credit cards, as their name implies, reward you with cash back for using the card. That makes them one of the most popular kinds of rewards cards because it’s like getting an extra discount on every purchase.

When looking for a cash back credit card you will want to keep in mind, however, that the biggest factors impacting any credit card are those that affect your interest rate and any standard fees and charges. If you get a card with too high of an interest rate or too expensive of an annual fee, it might undermine the whole point of trying to receive extra cash. The cash you get back with your cash back credit card should be viewed as an added perk. In other words, the best cashback credit card for you should allow you to enjoy that perk based on its fundamental ability to provide cash rewards in a relatively short amount of time.

Check our expert ratings, compare cards, and locate the top cash back credit cards which deliver the best all-around benefits – moderately low interest rate, universal cash back option and potentially one with no cap on the amount of cash back that can be earned. Most cash back credit cards will generally offer anywhere from 1% to 5% cash back – and will have guidelines regarding how much cash you can earn during a given timeframe. But if you pick your card wisely and then use it responsibly a cash back credit card is just like having an automatic savings plan or piggy bank tied to your purchase activity.
