The Chase Freedom Unlimited credit card isn’t the only card out there to offer 1.5% cash back on all purchases, but its signup bonuses (yes, there are technically two) help it stand out among the pack.

Bottom Line

Before you choose any of the above rewards credit cards, or expand your search to other options including a card from American Express or a Visa card with more cash rewards, you should first check the annual fee and the APR. What incentive are they offering you to sign up? Are all the fees worth the rewards?
