Cash back credit cards are a great choice if you have a good credit history and are looking for a hassle-free option to shop online. Some of these cards offer a flat rewards rate for every purchase you make on the card, while others offer elevated rewards in bonus categories that may include online purchases and/or other areas where you tend to spend the most.

For example, the Wells Fargo Active Cash® Card gives you a simple 2% back on every purchase, so you don't have to keep track of spending categories or caps. For those who are planning to make a big purchase, the card's introductory 0% APR offer can be helpful. The card comes with a 0% intro APR for 15 months from account opening on purchases and qualifying balance transfers (20.24%, 25.24%, or 29.99% Variable APR thereafter).

If your credit score is lower, check out unsecured cards that will report your activity to the major credit bureaus each month. The PREMIER Bankcard® Mastercard® Credit Card, for example, has flexible approval requirements, reports your account activity to the three major credit bureaus, and can help improve your credit score if used responsibly. And since it's a full-fledged Mastercard, it can be used both in stores and online.
