There are so many different rewards programs; choosing just one can be daunting. First, think about whether you’d prefer a cash back credit card, a points rewards card, or perhaps a travel rewards card. Each has things to recommend it. The great thing about a cash back card is that you can actually get money back, in the form of a statement credit or a check. But travel rewards cards often have the most lucrative, high-value rewards, including enough points for a round trip plane ticket or a weekend in a hotel. And points cards offer flexible redemptions for things like gift cards, merchandise, cash back, or travel credits. It’s really up to you. And remember, you don’t have to choose just one! Lots of people carry more than one credit card. If you have a good credit score, go ahead and apply for a couple of great cards today. For example, if you are Fred Meyer frequent shopper their credit card can be the right choice for you.
