This week we’re taking a look at card offers for those with excellent credit. The better your credit is, the more likely it is that you are going to be able to qualify for cards that offer you terrific perks, rewards, terms and conditions. Your excellent credit tells the credit card companies that they can count on you to make on-time payments and to use your credit wisely–so they tend to offer you the best credit card deals available.
The purpose of this weekly Saturday series is to highlight the best credit cards in different categories so that you can find the card that has the features that are right for you. If these excellent-credit credit cards aren’t right for you, then you might want to check out some of the other posts in our series, which include the top free rewards offers, the best cash back credit cards, and the best low interest credit cards.
Chase Freedom® is rewards credit card that lets you use your excellent credit to earn unlimited cash back. You can earn $100 Bonus Cash Back after you make $500 in purchases in your first 3 months from account opening. This credit card gives you unlimited 1% cash back on all general purchases. It also offers you 5% cash back in rotating bonus categories which change every quarter, subject to enrollment and quarterly maximum spend. Cash back can be redeemed in the form of a check or a statement rebate, and you can start cashing in when you’ve earned as little as $20. This credit card comes with the Chase Blueprint program, which allows you to choose flexible repayment plans for various purchases made on the card. There is no annual fee for this credit card.
Chase Sapphire Preferred®
Chase Sapphire Preferred® is a points-based rewards card that allows you to earn rewards for purchases. More than that, though, you actually earn rewards on your rewards. With this card, you can get an annual 7% points dividend based on the total number of new points that you earned on purchases for the year (including points you’ve already redeemed). This means that you get additional points just for earning points. And the points themselves add up quickly to nice rewards that include airline travel, hotel stays, transfers to your frequent flyer programs, or even statement credits. Get 20% off airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises when booking travel through the Chase travel booking tool, Ultimate Rewards?. People with excellent credit who qualify for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card are able to earn 40,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months from account opening – that’s worth $500 toward travel rewards booked through Chase Ultimate Rewards. This card comes with Chase Blueprint so you can have flexible repayment options for your purchases. There is an introductory annual fee of $0 for the first year, after that the annual fee will be $95.
