Credit Cards

 

 

Fidelity Retirement Rewards American Express Card – my preferred credit card for everything but gas and groceries. 2% cash back everywhere

Sallie Mae Signature VISA  – my other preferred credit card for everything but gas and groceries. 2% cash back everywhere

PenFed VISA Platinum Gas / Cash Rewards Card – my preferred credit card for gas for the 5% back.  Reviewed here.

Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express  – my preferred grocery card plus you can buy gift cards with it at the grocery store so if you plan well, you can be getting this much cashback at many stores (6% cash back; $75 annual fee)

Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card – my preferred hotel rewards card ($85 annual fee)

Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express  – my other preferred hotel rewards card ($65 annual fee)

Discover® More Card (a sponsor) & Chase Freedom® Visa  – I maximize these cards based on their 5% quarterly rewards.

Amazon VISA (a sponsor) – my preferred card for shopping at Amazon.com gives you 3% cash back that is easily redeemable through Amazon.  You can get 6% back at Amazon by using your  Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express  to buy Amazon gift cards at your grocery store, but this does add an extra layer of work.

Target Store Credit Card Review – I own this card because we do lots of shopping at Target. 5% cashback and free shipping at Target.

Lowes Store Credit Card Review – I don’t own this card, but it could be right for you. 5% cashback at Lowes.
