I love this card! It gives no interest deals for 6 months or longer if you buy something over $100. When i signed up it gave $10 off a purchase I was making so that was sweet. There is no annual fee ever. I would have given 5 stars, but it's a little tricky to navigate to the card's website, just be already logged in to amazon then go to amazon.com/storecard and it's OK.
I don't like annual fees, but the Marriott Rewards card is definitely a good deal, as the rewards far exceed the yearly $45. It's perfect if you are a regular Marriotter. The initial reward points are enough for 4 nights, that's worth a lot of cash! I use Discover during travel for the cashback, but this card would be better. The emergency cash and card feature is a lifesaver, believe me if you have ever been out of town and gotten stuck this will save you from a real hassle. Same for the free auto collision insurance, definitely a nice freebie.
This Priceline Visa is a lot like my Amazon rewards Visa, in that you get a lot of points upfront, earn points when you use it and zero annual fee. Priceline is pretty good for getting cheap rates, especially now that you can get a refund of the difference if you find a better deal, so if you are a regular user, the introductory points are worth about a c-note on travel. If you use it unwisely, the cash advance fee, interest, and foreign transaction fees are pretty high. If your credit isn't the greatest you could get the 21.99% APR, not good. But it's decent to keep as an emergency card, just don't have a running tab or you'll pay mucho interest.
Like most prepaid cards, the UPside Prepaid Debit Card is a bit expensive to use. If your credit is totally shot, it can be a start. But, a better option is to open a checking account with a free debit card linked to it. Call around and you can find a bank with free checking and debit cards in most towns. For the unfortunate souls who have wrecked their checking accounts, this can be a viable option to get back on track.
Having used Amex long ago, this incarnation seems to be the best they have offered in a long time. The many rewards will offset the hefty annual membership fee, such as the airline statement credits, the introductory 40K points, and the zero foreign transaction fees, which my Citi card charges around 3%. If you spend a lot and have great credit, it's definitely worthwhile.
The GM Card from Capital One is a great value, especially compared to my old Capital One Classic Platinum card, which had a $39 annual fee. With this one there's no annual fee, and 2 to 5 percent earnings on purchases will actually save you real money on a car purchase over the years, as long as you don't carry a balance. No interest in the first year is awesome. My Classic Platinum was easy to get with shaky credit, but for this card you will need very good credit to qualify.
This card is great if you get the offer of no interest for the first year, and pay the balance in full after that. They have the same deal for cash advance and they send you checks that you can write, but that has a flat 3% fee. Not bad if you are going to buy something big and effectively get 3% interest for a year. No annual fee for this one, 'thank you PREFERRED card" is great. Be careful, their other 'thank you premier card' has a whopping $125 annual fee after the first year! The website is very good, and the thank you points are easy to spend at Amazon or elsewhere. Great card!
This card has a great website interface, and is great about posting payments to the account quickly. If you send a payment online by the daily deadline, it will be on the card and available early the next morning. Online payments are really easy, using any of your entered bank accounts, or you can pay with billpay from a checking account (or mail in a paper check). Customer service by phone is fine, but via chat is even better. The annual fee is pretty high, though, they have other cards that are free, so I only gave it 4 stars. Maybe that high fee is because it is an easy one to get if your credit is not perfect (they will do a hard pull on your credit when you apply).
