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.

HI April,

If you are looking for a personal credit card, the Citi Double Cash is an excellent cash back card for earning rewards on your everyday expenses. This card comes with no annual fee and you will earn 1% cash back on purchases and another 1% cash back when you make a payment.

What is considered good or excellent credit score?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Apr 25, 2016

Hi Whitney,

A good credit score is usually considered to be anything from the upper 600s to around the mid 700s. Once your score gets to be in the mid to high 700s and into the 800s, your credit is considered excellent.

Hi Adam,

The Citi Double Cash is a MasterCard and it does come with a 3% foreign transaction fee.

I love my citibank card and its cash back. But, I am looking for a card to transfer my balances. I saw one today where there was 16 months no interest. That is what I need to pay off my cards. We need these cards but only if we pay them off each month which I have always done until I lost my husband

My daughter has never had a credit card. She needs one to travel for work. What card has the best rewards if she were to use it for all of her expenses--travel, fixed living expenses, entertainment and purchases?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Mar 29, 2016

If it is your daughter's first credit card then she will probably not be able to get approved for a premium travel rewards credit cards that will offer her the best benefits. In fact, if she has no credit, she will probably have to start with a secured credit card. The Discover it Secured Credit Card would be her best option because it is the only secured card that also offers cash back. Plus, there is no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees.

Yes I am looking at the Citi Double Cash card and I have a question. I am wanting to put my wife on as a joint account holder to help build her credit back up. My score is 805 and my wife's score is around 660 I believe. How do you think this will affect my approval knowing this particular card requires excellent credit?

Hi Cory,

The Citi Double Cash is an excellent choice for cash back! If you add your wife as an authorized user on the account, it will help her build credit as long as you use the card responsibly. Adding her as an authorized user won't impact your approval, because as the primary account holder, you will ultimately be the one responsible for all of the charges made.

By: Jason Lloyd | Mar 19, 2016

Easy to get around if your worried. Apply alone and add the authorized user after the fact. Then you don't have to wonder.

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.
