I really, really wish I had known about the Express Credit Card sooner. 15 points for $1 spent is FANTASTIC, especially considering that Express clothes tend to be on the pricier side before sales are taken into account. The $10 rewards are great, and you earn points on those as well so it's a win-win situation for the customer. This card is definitely worth getting if you shop at Express on a regular basis-- the benefits will add up quickly!
The Ann Taylor MasterCard's in-store 5 for $1 point earnings beats most other store credit cards I've seen! If you frequently shop at Ann Taylor or the LOFT, this is a great card. The APR is high but pretty standard, and you can get around it by paying off the card immediately every time you use it. I really like the bonus earnings-- $20 rewards card for every 2,000 points, $15 birthday gift... it's clear they value their customer base and want to offer incentives for staying loyal to the store/brand. With the 5 for $1 points also applying to online purchases, I don't see why you wouldn't just do all your shopping with Ann Taylor/LOFT and reap the benefits.
The Chase Slate Card is a FANTASTIC card for anybody working on paying off small, high-interest debts. The 0% APR for 15 months allows you to transfer your debt onto the card and stop accumulating interest, at least for a year and three months. Obviously this course is only for the fiscally responsible, and could hurt the credit score of someone who wasn't conscientious about paying off the debt and just let it sit. One drawback is the lack of a rewards program; if that's something you need out of a credit card, I can understand your hesitance in signing up. But for someone like me-- working to pay off small debts that are already accruing interest elsewhere-- the Chase Slate is an awesome solution.
The American Eagle Outfitters Credit Card is a great deal for frequent shoppers. I love all the extra rewards and percentages for using the card in-store, and cardholder savings. You could only shop those three or four times a year and still make good use of the benefits. The APR is comparable to most other store credit cards, but I wouldn't use the card for much besides shopping at the store. The cash advance rate is atrocious (which is standard on most credit cards) so this could probably not be your go-to card for all situations. A good deal if you're a frequent AEO shopper though!
