The “best” credit card is not the same for everyone. You need perks that are meaningful to the way that you live. The most popular cards offer big sign-up bonuses ($500 or more) and/or great rewards for spending, particularly in high-volume categories, like travel or dining. But your needs may differ: Some cards offer zero interest or no annual fees, while others get you primary rental insurance,

Whatever benefit you’re looking for, we’ve got a great card to fit the bill. The cards below are listed in the order of their total bonus offer values.

The Capital One Venture card is one of the most flexible in the industry, particularly if you are a frequent traveler. It earns double miles on every purchase with no bonus categories to remember. You can redeem these points for previous travel purchases (worth a penny a point) or transfer them to travel partners.

You can use your miles to get reimbursed for any travel purchase on your card or redeem your miles by booking a trip through Capital One Travel at a value of one cent per point for an effective 2% cash back on all purchases - or you can transfer them to a range of airlines and hotel partners.

1) The bonus value for the early spend bonus on this card assumes you will transfer the points to miles. If you use it to rebate charges for travel, the early spend bonus value will be 1 cent per point, exactly.

You can transfer to several airline and hotel partners. See the full list of Capital One Miles transfer partners and transfer times.

Is the American Express® Gold Card the best credit card for dining and groceries?

The Gold Card offers 4x Membership Rewards points at restaurants (including takeout and delivery) and at US supermarkets (up to $25,000 a year; 1X thereafter), as well as 3x on flights.

And at long last, American Express is once again offering both new and existing cardholders the opportunity to get the Rose Gold version of the Gold Card. (Simply select it when applying.)

It also offers $20 in monthly dining statement credits - $10 monthly at Grubhub, The Cheesecake Factory, Goldbelly, Wine.com, Milk Bar and select Shake Shack locations. Enrollment and $10 in Uber Cash each month. Enrollment required / terms apply.

(Note that the airline incidental credits will no longer be offered after 2021 and are no longer available to new applicants.)

While many Amex bonus categories are US-only, this card earns 4x on all restaurants, including internationally.

American Express defines a supermarket as offering a wide variety of food and household products such as meat, fresh produce, dairy, canned and packaged goods, household cleaners, pharmacy products and pet supplies. (Superstores, convenience stores and warehouse clubs are NOT considered supermarkets.)

It's also important to note that as a card product that American Express used to classify as "charge" - meaning that it has No Preset Spending Limit - so it is not counted against your 5 Amex credit card limit. The Gold Card will still be in the category of cards (former charge products) in which you can have up to 10. Those include the Green, Gold, Platinum, and Centurion.

US Bank Altitude GO Credit Card Review

The bottom line is that 4% cash back on dining, including takeout, dine-in, and delivery, is extremely strong for a credit card without an annual fee. It compares to the Capital One Savor card, though that card carries an annual fee.

Beyond the 4% cash back on dining, the 2% and 1% categories aren't special, especially considering the Citi Double Cash earns 2% back on everything, all of the time. But we can't think of another card earning 4% back on dining without an annual fee.

This card is for people with a very strong credit profile. You should have a 720 or better FICO to apply for this card.

The Citi Double Cash credit card is one of the "gold standards" in cash back cards.

This card earns a flat 2% cash back in a slightly different way.

You will earn 1% cash back twice: first when you make the charge, then when you pay. That's 2% total.

Cash back will be earned in the form of ThankYou Points, redeemable for cash or combinable with your other ThankYou points.

You can redeem your points directly for cash or you can convert Double Cash points to JetBlue. And if you have a Citi Premier or Citi Prestige, then you can also transfer them to Citi's participating travel loyalty programs at a 1:1 ratio, making this card worth a look for points and cash aficionados alike.

Balance Transfer Offer

0% intro APR on Balance Transfers for 18 months. After that, the variable APR will be 17.74% - 27.74%, based on your creditworthiness.

If you don't already have a credit history in the United States, likely because you are a new arrival without a Social Security Number, you are in the awkward position of trying to prove to US credit card companies that you are credit worthy.

The Jasper Mastercard® is designed just for you, with credit lines up to $5,000. 

Your on-time payments will be reported to US credit bureaus, which will help you build your US credit history. 

There are no annual fees, and you can even add Jasper to your mobile wallet like any other Mastercard. 

A Jasper rewards program is coming soon, but for right now you will not earn any rewards or cash back.
