Here are five things to pay attention to when picking a great rewards credit card.
Rewards You Can Use
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when searching for a new card is to choose one that gives you rewards that you won’t actually use. What’s the point of racking up airline miles if you’re terrified of air travel? Instead, focus on those rewards cards that will get you what you want, whether it’s cash back, hotel perks, or special event offers.
Interest That Doesn’t Eclipse Rewards
Cash back is great, isn’t it? But if you tend to leave a balance on your credit card from month to month, and your interest rate is sky-high, you’ll likely pay more in interest than you’ll receive in cash back. That rewards card just turned into a regular, boring credit card, didn’t it? The best thing to do is to set a precedent that you’ll never leave a balance on your credit card. Alternatively, do the math to make sure that the cash back rewards you receive each month is more than the interest you pay. Or choose a rewards card with a lower APR, like the Discover It card.
