Rewards vs Cash Back

Back to learn

Rewards or cash back credit cards, what's better?

Rounding it up

  • Rewards credit cards offer points that can be redeemed for merchandise, flights, and more, whereas cash back cards give you a fixed dollar amount for every purchase you make.

  • Choose a credit card based on your lifestyle and what gives you the most bang for your buck.

  • Also take a look at the value and flexibility of a card’s points or cash back to gauge exactly what you’re getting and how you can use it.

  • A credit card’s earn rate, welcome bonus, annual fee, and additional benefits are also important considerations when comparing different credit cards.
