Creditnet announces the top 5 cash back credit cards for spring, 2013

Creditnet used factors like bonus cash back, introductory cash opportunities and the zero percent intro period when determining the best cash back cards for the spring of 2013.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 06, 2013

For most of us, the first warm days of spring have finally arrived. Spring means a lot of things for consumers: spring cleaning, home improvement and (hopefully) a tax return to take advantage of.

That said, it's also a great time to apply for a cash back credit card since new cash back bonus offers become available in Quarter 2, which began on April 1st.

With new bonus cash back offers to consider and an excellent selection of cash back cards available for good-to-excellent credit consumers, Creditnet.com - a leading credit card comparison website - today released its list of the best cash back credit cards for spring 2013.

Creditnet used factors like bonus cash back, introductory cash opportunities, the ongoing rewards program and the length of the zero percent intro period when putting together its list of the best cash back cards for the spring of 2013.

1.) Discover it™

Creditnet's favorite cash back credit card for spring 2013 is the popular Discover it™ Card. Highlights of this card include 5 percent in bonus cash back on up to $1,500 made in rotating categories that change each quarter, and a 14-month introductory period of 0 percent APR applied to new purchases and balance transfers.

Through June 30th, cardholders that enroll can take advantage of 5 percent cash back on purchases made at home improvement stores (up to $1,500), making this card especially useful for homeowners looking to make some DIY repairs as the weather finally takes a turn for the better. There's also no annual fee, and cardholders that redeem cash back on Discover's online marketplace can save up to 20 percent on goods.

The excellent intro period and lucrative rewards program combine to make this the number one cash back card this spring according to Creditnet.

2.) Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express

Finally, this cash back offer from American Express makes Creditnet's list because it includes six percent cash back at stand-alone supermarkets in the U.S. (the first $6,000 in purchases), and another 3 percent cash back at stand-alone gas stations in the U.S. and select major department stores.

The annual fee attached to this card is $75, and there's a 12 month 0 percent intro period applied to new purchases. Cardholders can earn 150 Reward Dollars after making $1,000 in purchases within the first three months of card membership, and for those whose credit is great enough for approval this is one of the most lucrative cash back cards through 2013.

3.) Citi® Dividend Platinum Select® Visa® Card - $100 Cash Back

Another popular cash back card that offers a $100 cash back bonus is this Dividend card from Citi. Cardholders that make $500 in purchases within the first three months receive a $100 cash back, and the 5 percent enrollment program includes purchases at the Home Depot, home furnishing stores and garden stores through June 2013. (Up to $300 in cash back annually.)

Like the aforementioned credit cards for cash back, there's no annual fee and a 0 percent interest period of 12 months applied to new purchases and balance transfers. This is another credit card for home improvement perfect for homeowners this spring 2013.

4.) Capital One® Quicksilver Cash Rewards

A cash back credit card that keeps it simple this spring is the Capital One® Quicksilver Cash Rewards card. There are no rotating categories to enroll in; this card simply offers 1.5 percent cash back on every purchase you make.

Cardholders can take advantage of a zero interest intro period applied to new purchases and balance transfers, and there's no annual fee. Last but not least, this card includes a $100 cash back bonus after cardholders spend $500 on purchases within the first three months.

This card is for excellent credit consumers that like to keep cash back simple.

5.) Chase Freedom®

Another cash back credit card that's offering 5 percent cash back on purchases related to home improvement is the Chase Freedom card. Cardholders can earn 5 percent cash back on up to $1,500 in purchases made at Lowe's, plus restaurants and movie theater purchases are also included in these rotating categories through June 2013.

This card's intro period includes 0 percent interest on new purchases and balance transfers for 15 months, and cardholders that make $500 in purchases in the first three months will receive a $100 cash back bonus.
