To get the most out of a miles or points balance takes work and often quite a bit of effort. People with busy lives and families to look after generally don't have the time or energy to deal with all of that and this a big reason why cash back credit cards are so incredibly popular and why the Blue Cash Preferred Card is a card that would work well in most wallets.
There's aren't many credit cards that I consider to be "must-have" cards for any serious miles and points fan but the Blue Business Plus Credit Card from American Express is definitely one of them. This card comes with no annual fee and is one of the more rewarding cards you'll find for spending in non-bonused categories.
The American Express Gold Card is a key card in Amex's Membership Rewards ecosystem as it offers the best earning rates out of any American Express card in select major spending categories. It's a card that offers valuable benefits that help cardholders offset the annual fee, and with the currency that it earns being transferable to an impressive variety of airline and hotel loyalty programs, it's a card that can help cardholders make significant savings on aspirational travel bookings.
A wide variety of cards offer bonuses or cash back for spending on dining, takeouts, and food delivery services, so I've pulled together a selection of five cards that I think offer some of the best returns available on dining expenditure. With no-annual-fee cards sharing this list with ultra-Premium cards, there should be a card that fits most people's wallets in this selection.
With no annual fee, good cash back on key spending categories, and a nice welcome offer which should be easy for most to max-out, the Blue Cash Everyday Card is a card that looks tempting right now. Cash back may not be the coolest of rewards that you can get from a credit card but it's as reliable a reward as you'll find, and when the world is as it is, reliable is often preferable to cool.
Selecting the airline on which to use the Platinum Card's airline fee credit is usually one of the first things that a lot of people do when they get their Platinum Card in the mail. What a lot of people often forget is that you can change the airline on which you use the airline fee credit once every year and that the one time this change can be made is at the beginning of every calendar year - in January.
The Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card from American Express is the most premium Bonvoy credit card available and offers a variety of excellent benefits for the $450 annual fee that it charges. To some that annual fee may sound a little high, but if you're a Marriott timeshare owner or if you own Marriott Vacation Club points, this should be one of the first cards that you make sure you have in your portfolio.
If you hold an American Express co-branded card and have been feeling a little left out as you've watched holders of other Amex cards enjoying the great offers and spending bonuses that they have been targeted for in recent days, don't worry, good things are on the way...apparently.
Amex is on a roll right now. A little earlier I wrote about a monthly $30 PayPal credit that has been added to the personal Platinum Card (for a limited time), this morning I wrote about the excellent offers that a lot of Platinum Card holders have been targeted for, and now we're seeing Business Platinum Card holders being targeted for a great offer too.
