The type of card that would be best for you to use is going to be based on multiple factors including where you shop, your credit card payment history and your reason for choosing to shop with a credit card. If you're someone who shops frequently in a variety of places and always pays their balance in full, you could highly benefit from using a general rewards credit card to complete your shopping. Using one of these cards will allow you to get more out of the purchases you make. If you happen to be someone who makes a lot of purchases and sometimes carries a balance, it may be a wiser decision for you to find a card that offers a low fixed APR.
