what is the best card for earning rewards and a lower interest rate?

1 Reply

By: CompareCards | Jul 7, 2015

Hi Jackie,

There are a number of cards that offer excellent rewards programs as well as low interest rates. The first card I'd recommend is the Citi Double Cash. This card offers an unlimited 1% cash back when you make a purchase and another 1% when you pay your bill. So if you pay your balance in full each month, you'll be earning a steady 2% cash back on all of your purchases! The Citi Double Cash also offers 0% APR for the first 15 months to new cardholders.

Another card to take a look at is the Chase Freedom. This card also has 0% APR for 15 months and an award winning cash back program. Cardholders earn 1% on all purchases as well as 5% back in various categories that change each quarter. The 5% categories typically include things like gas, groceries, and dining out.

EMV Credit Cards: PIN-and-chip or chip-and-signature

 

EMV credit cards, also known as chip-and-PIN cards, are credit cards that come with a small microprocessor chip embedded in the credit card. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa, who are the pioneers of this technology. This technology works the same as traditional magnetic strip credit cards in that it still stores the credit card numbers and expiration dates. What’s different, though, is that transactions are encrypted each time the card is used, making it extremely difficult for thieves to steal information.

EMV technology was slow to catch on in the United States due to the high cost of converting credit card readers like ATM’s and POS systems. With the increase in data breaches and the billions of dollars lost to fraudulent card activity, the United States will finally be switching to the more secure EMV credit card technology in 2015.

EMV cards can be either a chip-and-PIN card or a chip-and-signature card. Chip-and-PIN cards will work very similar to your bank’s debit card where a PIN is required to process a payment in real-time, along with a signature. Most payment terminals won’t be immediately equipped for PIN’s, so for now you can expect your EMV card to work much like it already does. Find out more about EMV credit cards like how to get a PIN-and-chip credit card, by visiting our blog.
