It seems that at least a few of the juicy card offers that consumers with good credit enjoyed a few years ago are back with a vengeance, said Curtis Arnold, Founder of CardRatings.com.

Foster City, CA (PRWEB) December 6, 2010

Today, CardRatings.com released Part 1 of its annual Editor’s Choice Awards for Best Credit Cards of 2011 giving a nod to this year’s winners in the following categories:

  •     Best Cash-back Credit Cards
  •     Best Airline and Travel Credit Cards
  •     Best Low Interest Credit Cards
  •     Best Low Introductory Rate Credit Cards

“The credit card industry has been on a roller-coaster ride in 2010”, according to Curtis Arnold, Founder of CardRatings.com. “The first of the year was filled with doom and gloom and there was a lot of talk about higher rates and fewer perks.” Interestingly, as the year progressed and credit card offers began reappearing in consumer mailboxes, so have attractive new reward and incentive programs.

“The cards highlighted in this survey have very compelling value propositions and we view these offers as evidence that neither the CARD Act nor the credit crunch have killed the industry. On the contrary, it seems that at least a few of the juicy card offers that consumers with good credit enjoyed a few years ago are back with a vengeance," said Arnold.

Part 2 of the Editor’s Choice Best Credit Cards Awards will be release in early January. It will announce the winners in the following categories:

  •     Best Reward Points Credit Cards

  •     Most Innovative Credit Cards
