It’s natural for consumers to simply seek out whichever card offers the most points, miles or cash back. But in reality, whether you’re looking for a gas credit card, an airline credit card, a hotel credit card or another type of rewards card, the offer with the highest on-paper rewards rate won’t necessarily be the most lucrative for you. For example, a card affiliated with a specific gas-station chain might offer the highest cash-back rate, but if it’s inconvenient for you to fill up there, the extra rewards won’t do you much good.
