Rewards credit cards allow you to earn points, cash back, airline miles, or other special awards when you make credit card purchases. Most rewards cards award you a certain number of points per dollar you spend, and then allow you to use those points towards cash rebates, airline tickets, travel, major purchases, and special offers and perks.
Start by looking at your own spending habits. Go through your bank account and credit card statements to determine in which categories you spend the most money. Decide which type of rewards you are most interested in earning. Then apply for a rewards credit card that will give you the highest rewards for how you spend money.
You will usually earn 1-2 points per dollar you spend. Many credit card issuers offer additional ways to earn 5, 10, even 15 points per dollar, such as online shopping sites and rotating bonus point deals. And make sure to look for a card with a sign-up bonus points offer!
*For complete information, see the terms and conditions on the credit card issuer’s website. Once you click apply for this card, you will be directed to the issuer’s website where you may review the terms and conditions of the card before applying. While Credit.com always strives to present the most accurate information, we show a summary to help you choose a product, not the full legal terms - and before applying you should understand the full terms of products as stated by the issuer itself.
** FICO scores and credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any credit card offer.
