Unfortunately, no credit card offers free cash advances. All credit cards charge interest on cash advances, at least. And that interest always starts accruing the moment you take out the advance. But if you get a card with no fee and pay off the balance right after doing a cash advance, you shouldn’t have to deal with much in the way of extra costs.
Some of the best cash advance credit cards also offer some excellent rewards. For example, the PNC Premier Traveler card offers 30,000 miles for spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. And it gives 2 miles / $1 on all purchases.
The PenFed Platinum Rewards Visa offers 5 points / $1 spent on gas, 3 points/$1 at supermarkets and 1 point / $1 everywhere else. And it gives a $100 statement credit for spending $1,500 in the first 90 days. Only PenFed members can get the card, but anyone can join PenFed with a $17 one-time donation to the National Military Family Association or Voices for America’s Troops. U.S. military or government employees and their families join for free.
