Using a rewards card can put a little of your hard-earned cash back in your wallet where it belongs.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
Credit.com, a leading consumer education and financial resource website, today announced the winners in the fifth installment of its best-in-class series, “The Best Credit Cards in America.” This edition features Credit.com’s pick for the “Best Cash Rewards Credit Card.”
"The Best Credit Cards in America" series is the brainchild of nationally recognized credit card expert Beverly Harzog and is designed to give users a peek at the most "consumer friendly" cards in the marketplace. Harzog examines a variety of credit card categories and designates the best cards within that group. Cards are rated based upon a unique formula of 41 separate metrics that compare the cards’ costs and benefits.
“The economy seems to be improving, but most people are still recovering from the recession. So I decided to focus on cash rewards to help folks pay for their everyday expenses, such as gas and groceries,” says Harzog. “These days, paying for a tank of gas is a stressful experience. Using a rewards card can put a little of your hard-earned cash back in your wallet where it belongs.”
The Best Cash Rewards Credit Card in America:
Winner: Chase Freedom Visa $100 Bonus Cash Back + 0% Intro APR
This card offers a nice cash back bonus plus a zero percent introductory APR for the first 15 months.

It all adds up to a win for consumers,” Harzog says.
