We have the Venture card and it works just like they say for hotels rentals etc. We put everything on it including business expenses. We currently have over 1,000.000 miles.

Capital One Quicksilver offers 1.5% back on purchases of ANYTHING! I use it to pay bills, buy groceries, at restaurants, ad infinitum. Great card... I use it almost exclusively.

If you pay the balance monthly as I do, the Citi Double Cash card pays you back 2% of every purchase. No annual fee. It's the best thing since ice cream! I DO use it exclusively.

I got three of these cards, BOA cash rewards is my favorite. Chase slate literally has zero rewards except for balance transfers savings. I will be getting my first capital one card after years of them trying to get my business after my paperwork goes through for opening my own business. I will be getting the spark cash rewards card. Fico score has been usually around 750 and was once up to 800 till I got a second car loan for a daily driver.

I have two of these, Discover It and Bank of America Cash Rewards. They are both great. I also love my Chase Amazon with 3% back on Amazon purchases and 2% at drugstores; and my Chase Freedom, which is super helpful when the 5% category for the quarter is gas stations or discount clubs. I also just added Barclays Cash Forward mainly for the $200 bonus. Chase has great customer service and excellent apps.

I'm with Chase and I actually got Pre Approved for their Sapphire AND Freedom cards. I chose Freedom over Sapphire, because I understand Sapphire is mostly for traveling and/or dining; which I rarely do both. I just found it interesting how I saw their Sapphire card on here. It gave me a smile and a chuckle to know this.

I have a capital one spark business card that yields 2% back on everything and I mean everything. I like the fact that they will do whatever you want with it, including sending you a check. I have an Amazon Visa that gives me 5% back on anything ordered from Amazon, which is a lot.. I have the Discover and AMEX blue cash but I can never remember the places or in which months I can earn. So I basically use the Spark and Amazon most of the time. I pay all balances off, and never pay any interest.

I have 19 Cards and the BEST BY FAR IS Chase Freedom, Chase Amazon and Capital One QuickSilver

I have Chase Freedom and Chase Amazon, they are both good, Chase Freedom is really great when the 5% category is gas or discount clubs. It's not so remunerative when the category is movies or restaurants.

I may be mistaken, but I have found that most or all of these cards allow you to use any airline, hotel, etc, but I believe it takes considerably more miles than it does on a card dedicated to a specific airline. However, if you can not afford to pay off your balance every month, the airline cards have extremely high interest and not recommended unless you pay it off each month.

I to have several cards. My credit is great just because you have several cards does not hurt the credit score. Its how high you put them and how you pay,

I have Capital One Venture. My wife and i have been able to fly free twice a year for our cruises. the 2 for one miles make it worthwhile and there is only a 59..00 annual fee. HIGHLY recommend it

But how many miles do you bank in a year to be able to do that? And how far are you flying?

Best Credit Card for Excellent Credit Holders

Those who have exceptionally good credit may want to apply for the best credit cards that especially cater to people with above average credit scores and stellar credit histories. Credit card companies will usually offer special perks, features, interest rates, and other preferential service to those who qualify for top credit cards.

By federal law you are allowed to access your credit reporting files free of charge once a year. For a small fee you can see them more than once per year and can also gain access to your FICO score – which is commonly referred to as your credit score. Credit scores for excellent credit range from 700 to 850 and are determined by using a proprietary algorithm which factors in several components of credit worthiness. If your score is above 700 that’s quite good and for most issuers is considered excellent.

To maintain your high rating follow the tips on how to preserve your credit. If you need help to improve your credit score to qualify for an excellent credit credit card, then take advantage of the many free, user-friendly financial management resources, articles, and tools that we offer. Once you have earned excellent credit you have a wide range of reward card options as well as promotional 0 percent introductory APRs which come with very attractive ongoing interest rates – typically around 12%.
