I was interested in applying for the Sam’s Club credit card after hearing about the rewards it includes, but I found out that it can only be used at Sam’s and there aren’t really any stores near me. Is there any card that you could recommend that will allow me to earn rewards on all my department store shopping?

There is no need to apply for the Sam’s Club credit card. Shopping credit cards usually give more rewards for in-store purchases from a particular brand and other purchases do not earn much. We would recommend you to apply for a regular credit card that will allow you to earn equal rewards on all your purchases. For example, it can be the Discover it® Miles. The card will allow you to earn unlimited 1.5x miles on all purchases and it comes with 0% intro APR on purchases (after that the ongoing APR will apply). You will have fourteen months to pay off the card balance without paying an annual fee. Another good feature is no annual fee. Most airline credit cards have high annual fees while Discover cards come without annual fees.
