3 Best Cash-Back Cards

Money in Back Pocket Upgrade your ho-hum credit card to one that puts money in your pocket. Card experts Erica Sandberg and Ben Woolsey of CreditCards.com name the three best cash-back cards.

    • Chase Freedom Visa has no annual fee and gives unlimited 1% cash back on all purchases—but every three months, you can earn 5% in certain categories (with a $1500 maximum). Just be sure to pay attention to the categories. (Through March, earn 5% at gas stations and on Amazon.)


If your credit isn’t top-notch, you still have a good option:

  • The Capital One No Hassle Cash Rewards card charges a $39 annual fee, but the perks are solid: 2% cash back on gas and groceries, 1% cash back on everything else, no limits or expirations, and you can set up automatic redemptions.

Cash in. What’s your favorite credit card—and why?
